Speech Title: Mobile Edge Computing for Internet of Vehicles


Abstract: The concept of “connected vehicles” is driving the evolution of traditional transport systems into the era of Internet of Vehicles (IoV). In this emerging paradigm, we may envision that high computation and low-latency content requirement. This talk mainly includes three parts. In the first part, we introduce the key concepts and architectures in the IoV scenario. Then, we focus on several unprecedented challenges and potential solutions when we explore mobile edge computing for IoV. These challenges are related to new vehicle edge computing scenarios, optimal resource management in computation offloading and edge caching.
