Title: Mobility for Tomorrow – A Large Scale Smart Mobility Test Bed @ Nanyang Technological University

Presented by: Dr. Ming Yang, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Abstract: In this presentation, Dr. Yang will introduce an ITS V2X communication program, Smart Mobility Test Bed, that is developed in Nanyang Technological University (NTU) campus. After a brief talk about the four program directions, namely, Research, Use Case, Industry Collaboration and Test Bed, Dr. Yang will emphasize on the end-to-end system design, development and deployment of the Test Bed. Each component of the Test Bed, like outdoor network infrastructure, video surveillance system, data centre, control centre and vehicular setup will be presented in details. At the end of the presentation, Dr. Yang will bring up the practical ‘scalability’ issue for large scale live platform. Some solutions that has been implemented in this Test Bed project will be discussed.  This Smart Mobility Test Bed program is a four-year collaboration program between NTU and NXP and is largely funded by Singapore Economic Development Board.
