Position Filled - Research Fellow position on a SFI CONNECT (BAV) Targeted project with an industry partner.

The School of Computer Science & Information Technology at UCC is internationally recognised for its research on innovative networking and systems research.  It also plays a lead role in the national SFI-funded CONNECT Centre for Future Networks & Communications and the SFI-funded Blended Autonomous Vehicle (BAV) spoke, a multi-centre research programme.   We are now seeking to fill a Research Fellow position on a SFI CONNECT (BAV) Targeted project with an industry partner. Linked to the European C-Roads initiative, roadside communications equipment is being rolled out on parts of the national road network. This will facilitate a number of advisory and traffic efficiency services. The technology is a combination of wireless and emerging cellular standards. This research project will provide a comprehensive simulation analysis to study the communications scalability of providing such services when connected vehicle penetration rates increase. This study will consider a variety of conditions to determine reliability of such services. Innovative approaches should be proposed to improve the reliability of the system and with the performance of system evaluated to support future envisioned connected vehicular services and with a future focus on increased autonomy.
