Component: WIMXCLEM Version: SPIRAL7
Keywords: GEC22 Cc:; Kuang-Ching Wang;;


One-sentence layman's description:

This demo shows how can GENI/Wireless (particularly GENI WIMAX/LTE), GENI Cloud resources, and SDN work together to enhance the connected vehicle applications originally designed with dedicated short range communication (DSRC) units.

Who should see this demo?

Attendees interested in emerging connected vehicle networks and applications.

Demo description paragraph(s):

By the end of the decade, it is expected that the US Department of Transportation (DOT) will require all new vehicles to be capable of communicating with other vehicles and roadside infrastructure through wireless communications. The primary motivation of connected vehicles (CV) envisioned by the US DOT is to reduce the number of crashes that cost more 30,000 lives every year on the US highways. The crash avoidance applications supported by vehicle to vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) connectivity exchange safety critical information such as speed, location and direction of movement to assess the crash risk based on the proximity of vehicles. In this demo, we will show how to exploit the GENI Wireless and Cloud resources and SDN to enhance the connected vehicle applications. Particularly, we will build a testbed along a segment of I-85 near Clemson ICAR campus. GENI WiMAX has already covered that segment of interstate. We will further build DSRC enabled RSUs along the road for vehicles to access. On-board units with both WiMAX and DSRC interfaces will be equipped on testing vehicles.

We will use SDN to enable vehicles to use all wireless networks including GENI/Wireless and DSRC enabled roadside units (RSUs). Vehicles can switch between WiMAX and RSU transparently without interrupting ongoing connections while moving along our testbed. This means that vehicles can efficiently use these networks to report their location, mobility, and status data. Such data will be aggregated in the GENI Cloud for various applications.

List of equipment that will need AC connections (e.g. laptop, switch, monitor):

3 laptops and 2 monitors.

Total number of wired network connections (sum standard IP and VLAN connections):


Number of wired layer 2 VLANs (if any):


Number of wireless network connections (include required bandwidth if significant):


Number of static addresses needed (if any):


Monitor (y/n, specify VGA or DVI):

y 2

Specify resolution only if your software has resolution restrictions.

Number of posters (max size poster boards are 30" x 40"):
