Keynote: Challenges of Fully Integrating Sensor, Vehicle ADS, and 5G Technologies to Achieve Reliable and Safe Transportation Systems
As technologies in sensor, vehicle auto-drive-system (ADS), and 5G communication connectivity advance, the future transportation system in U.S. will see the benefits of improving roadway throughput and reduction in greenhouse gas emission, traffic congestion, and traffic fatality and injury suffered from traffic accidents.
It is recognized that these new technologies are disruptive and they will bring changes in the established engineering practice of traditional vehicle design, including but not limited to vehicle system design, new occupant safety protections system design, and highway safety system design. Automotive manufacturers will need to work with technology and communication supply companies to fully integrated different sections of advanced technology to achieve truly effective, reliable and safety vehicle operating systems as well as highway transportation systems.
In this talk, reliabilities of key technology in sensing and vehicle ADS and 5G connectivity and its integration into future transportation systems will be addressed. Some of main challenges of transitioning to fully automated vehicle fleets on U.S. roadway will also be discussed so that engineers are fully aware of safety consequences of changing technology.

About Professor Cing-Dao (Steve) Kan
Dr. Kan received his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Maryland in 1990. He joined George Mason University in May 2013 as Professor of Computational Solid Mechanics in the College of Science. At Mason he serves as the Director of the Center for Collision Safety and Analysis (CCSA).
Previously, Dr. Kan worked at The George Washington University for more than 20 years. He served as the Director of the National Crash Analysis Center (NCAC) from July 2005 to May 2013. His research activities have been focused on computational solid mechanics using non-linear finite element (FE) modeling and analysis methodologies. While at NCAC he led efforts to develop vehicle structural and occupant models, conduct evaluations of vehicle crashworthiness, assess bumper-height compatibility issues in collisions between large and small vehicles, analyze roadside hardware safety, and conduct component and full-scale crash tests to gather data for formulating models and/or validating simulation results.
