Keynote Title: Towards Software-Defined Networked Cars as Social Agents
Keynote Lecturer: Dr. Wolfgang Wahlster
Keynote Chair: Dr. Frank Dignum
Presented on: 08-02-2012
Abstract: Intelligent Car2X technologies and networked cyber-physical systems in digital cars create intelligent transportation environments based on software-defined cars that provide tailored services to their users. Future digital cars serve not only as mobile sensors, mobile internet nodes and mobile web servers but also as social agents that collaborate with other cars and drivers for more safety, better energy efficiency, intelligent connectivity and advanced infotainment. We show how software-defined cars can be customized by downloading apps from app stores for digital vehicles. We present a new generation of intelligent car assistants that provide a broad range of situation-aware services from local danger warnings, intelligent intersection and traffic light management to persuasive eco-driving coaching. We will show how a digital black box of the car provides a detailed semantic diary of the car that provides long-term context information. The smart key of our test car can store the shopping list of the driver and can be used for NFC payment in the supermarket. The in-car sensors detect missing shopping items and plan the route accordingly. The car monitors the temperature and the air-conditioning when frozen products are being carried. We will illustrate our approach with various video clips from DFKI’s instrumented BMW and Daimler test vehicles. Finally, we will discuss our current work based on always-on, all-electric and all-IP cars that provide an emotional experience and advanced social network behavior.
