Carleton University’s Richard Yu, professor in the School of Information Technology, will host a demonstration of connected/autonomous vehicles technology developed as part of Carleton student research projects. The demonstration will feature information sharing between vehicles, as well as an attempt and mitigation of a security attack.

When: Thursday, April 12, 11 a.m. to noon
Where: Library Road (near Canal Building and Azrieli Pavillion), Carleton University
Additional Information: Student research posters will be presented from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the University Centre Galleria.

Media are invited to attend the event.

In this demonstration, the vehicles will share key details – car location, speed and brake information – with each other. Yu and the students will also demonstrate a security attack, such as an impersonation of a police vehicle, as well as mitigation solutions.

This demonstration is part of Yu’s research into cutting-edge technologies to secure connected and autonomous vehicles. His research was granted funding of $974,000 over three years from the Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP) in October 2017.
