From Connected Autonomous Vehicles to Autonomous Cooperative UAVs: The Road to Smarter Cities

  • Soufiene Djahel (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


In this talk, we will discuss how connected autonomous vehicles (CAVs) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can contribute to making our cities smarter and more sustainable with a particular focus on transportation.
We will first present our research work on safety messages dissemination and congestion control to enhance CAVs' efficiency in different application scenarios. Then, we discuss a Q-Learning based UAVs path planning approach that enables them to support various applications efficiently and autonomously within a dynamic unknown environment.
Finally, we present our recent work on integrating UAVs and a deep reinforcement learning based intersection control strategy to efficiently handle unexpected urban traffic congestion.
