IMDEA Networks is again participating in the Madrid Science and Innovation Week, a science outreach and citizen participation event that aims to attract new audiences, involve new agents and institutions in the scientific process, and make science more visible.
On November 10 and 11, the Institute is organizing an educational talk “SocialCars: Wireless Communication in Cooperative Urban Traffic”. Professor Markus Fidler will present an overview of how wireless communication technology can help improve transportation in the future.
SocialCars focuses on cooperative approaches to make future urban road traffic more city-compliant. “How can the needs of society for livable urban space be reconciled with individual requirements for efficient and safe transport?” is the key question.
