WiVeC Panel

Monday 03 June 2013, 15:30–17:30 (Konferenz 2)

“VANETs - From research to initial deployment – what comes next?” Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) have been subject of research for more than a decade now. Standardization development organizations in Europe and North America have already released an initial set of VANET standards. Field operation tests are currently being carried out. Industry consortia are now planning deployment of the first basic system. Based on different viewpoints and experiences from recent research studies, field trials and the ongoing standardization process, the panel will discuss the remaining and next steps towards full deployment and aims to conclude on the coming key research questions. The panel with prominent speakers from academia as well as industry covers radio, communication protocols, applications and security.

Andreas Festag (Reserach group leader at TU Dresden, Germany) (Moderator)

Andreas Festag received a diploma degree (1996) and Ph.D. (2003) in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University Berlin. As researcher, he worked with the Telecommunication Networks Group (TKN) at Technical University Berlin, Heinrich-Hertz-Institute (HHI) in Berlin and NEC Laboratories in Heidelberg, where he lastly had the position of a Chief Researcher. Since 2013 he is research group leader at the Technical University Dresden, Vodafone chair Mobile Communication Systems. Andreas has worked on various research projects for wireless and mobile communication networks and published more than 50 papers in journals, conference proceedings and workshops. His research is concerned with architecture, design and performance evaluation of wireless and mobile communication systems and protocols, in the past years with a focus on vehicular communication and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). He actively contributes to the CAR-2-CAR Communication Consortium and to ETSI Technical Committee ITS. He is senior member of IEEE.

Oliver Klemp (Research Specialist at BMW Forschung und Technik GmbH, Germany)

Oliver Klemp received his Dipl.-Ing. degree in 2002 and the Dr.-Ing. degree in 2007 (with distinction), both in Electrical Engineering from Leibniz University of Hannover. His principal research interests included antenna systems and electronics for MIMO wireless communications, signal processing in multiple antenna configurations and ultra-wideband communications. Dr. Klemp joined Delphi Delco Electronics Europe GmbH in 2006 as a research engineer for antennas and receivers in the area of digital satellite radio systems. From 2007 through 2010 he worked as a product line architect and project manager in advanced engineering and series development with focus on antennas and transceivers for Vehicle-to-X communications and automotive infotainment systems. In 2010, Oliver Klemp joined BMW Group Research and Technology as a research specialist and project manager in the area of vehicle-centric communications with focus on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).
From 2007 through 2011 Dr. Klemp also held a position as an external lecturer for electromagnetic wave propagation and RF circuits and systems at the Institute of High Frequency Technology and Radio Systems at Leibniz University of Hannover.
Dr. Klemp was awarded with a Gerotron Innovation Award in 2005 and is the recipient of the Scientific Award of the City of Hannover in 2008. He has authored or co-authored more than 50 papers in international journals and conferences and is co-author of the COST 2100 book "Pervasive Mobile and Ambient Wireless Communications". Oliver Klemp is a member of the IEEE, the German Electrotechnical Association (VDE), COST IC 1004 and the Car-2-Car Communication Consortium.

Christoph Mecklenbräuker (Professor at Technische Universität Wien, Austria)

Christoph Mecklenbräuker was born in Darmstadt, Germany, in 1967. He received the Dipl-Ing. degree in Electrical Engineering from Vienna University of Technology in 1992 and the Dr.-Ing. degree from Ruhr-University of Bochum in 1998, respectively. His doctoral thesis was awarded with the Gert Massenberg Prize.

From 1997-2000, he worked for the Mobile Networks Radio department of Siemens AG Austria where he participated in the European framework of ACTS 90 FRAMES. He was a delegate to the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and engaged in the standardisation of the radio access network for UMTS.

Since June 2000, he was a senior researcher at the Telecommunications Research Center Vienna (ftw.) in the field of mobile communications, key researcher since November 2002, and proxy since July 2003. Between 2006 and 2009, he coordinated the Sixth Framework project "Multiple-Access Space-Time Coding Testbed" (MASCOT) on behalf of ftw. He leads the Special Interest Group on mobile-to-mobile communications within COST Action 2100 Pervasive Mobile and Ambient Wireless Communications.

In 2006, he joined the Institute of Communications and Radio Frequency Engineering at Vienna University of Technology as a full professor. Since July 2009, he leads the newly founded Christian Doppler Laboratory for Wireless Technologies for Sustainable Mobility. His current research interests include radio interfaces for future peer-to-peer networks (car-to-car communications, personal area networks, and wireless sensor networks), ultra-wideband radio (UWB) and MIMO-OFDM based transceivers (UMTS long term evolution, WiMax, and 4G).

Christoph Mecklenbräuker is a member of the IEEE, the Antennas and Propagation Society, the Vehicular Technology society, the Signal Processing society, and EURASIP. He is the councilor of the IEEE Student Branch Wien. He is associate editor of the EURASIP Journal of Applied Signal Processing.
