Automated Driving and Connected Vehicles


Short Abstract

Modern society depends on faster, safer, and environment friendly transportation system. Vehicular communications network in terms of vehicle to vehicle, vehicle to infrastructure, vehicle to pedestrian, vehicle to cloud, and sensor, etc., can provide a potential solution to such transportation system. In this talk, we first introduce all connected vehicles. We then present the applications, challenges and scientific research issues of vehicular communications network. We also explain the role of vehicular networking in the automated driving era. We conclude the talk by discussing the future Space-Air-Ground (SAG) Integrated vehicular networks for full automated driving and presenting the SAG simulator.

Chaesub Lee was elected Director of the ITU Telecommunication Standardization Bureau at the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference 2014 in Busan, Republic of Korea, and re-elected to this post for a second four-year term at the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference 2018 in Dubai, Unied Arab Emirates

Dr Lee has been involved in the telecommunication and ICT standardization field for 30 years, specializing in areas such as integrated services digital networks (ISDN), global information infrastructure (GII), Internet protocol, next-generation networks (NGN), Internet protocol television (IPTV) and cloud computing.

He started his professional life in 1986 as a researcher at Korea Telecom. After 17 years he took up a role at the country's Electronic and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), where he stayed for the next eight years. Most recently he worked at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), and as a senior advisor to the Koreans Ministry, ICT and Future Planning (MSIP).

Within ITU Dr Lee served as Chairman of the ITU Next-Generation Networks (NGN) Focus Group to address the growing need for global standards for NGN, including service requirements, functional architecture and mobility, security and Quality of Service (QoS). He was also Vice-Chairman of the ITU IPTV Focus Group which works to coordinate and promote the development of IPTV standards.

He acted as Vice-Chairman of ITU-T Study Group 13 'Future Networks and Cloud' from 2001 until 2008, becoming Chairman of that group in 2009. Study Group 13 works to develop standardization solutions for NGNs, future networks and cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), and mobile telecommunications, to ensure their smooth international deployment in the coming years.

Dr Lee holds a PhD in Multimedia Engineering. He is married with two children.



Standards for building a trust-based 5G era


Short Abstract

5G is being developed as a next generation smart infrastructure which will cover much wider areas than previous networks. Key features of 5G such as ultra-reliability and low latency are promising essential contributions to building innovative, smart and sustainable societies. Autonomous driving and helping Industry 4.0 through massive machine communications are critical examples. Taking into consideration these features of 5G and future prospection, this presentation will identify roles and functions of standards to help a society using 5G systems be a trust-based community.
