​7th International Workshop on

Safety and Security of Intelligent Vehicles

June 21, 2021 - Taipei, Taiwan

Co-located with DSN 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SSIV+'2021 will be held virtually

About SSIV

Over the last years, aerial and ground vehicles as well as mobile robot systems have been receiving an increased number of electronic components, connected through wireless networks and running embedded software. This strong integration between dedicated computing devices, the physical environment and networking, composes a Cyber-Physical System (CPS).

CPS have thus become part of common vehicles, accessible to everyone, such as automobiles or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Furthermore, as processing power increases and software becomes more sophisticated, these vehicles gain the ability to perform complex operations, becoming more autonomous, safe, efficient, adaptable, comfortable and usable. These are known as Intelligent Vehicles. This will be the fifth edition of the workshop, aiming at continuing the success of previous editions.

The vast range of open challenges to achieve Safety and Security in Intelligent Vehicles (with or without connection with the Internet) is a fundamental reason that justifies the numerous research initiatives and wide discussion on these matters, which we are currently observing everywhere. Therefore, the workshop will keep its focus on exploring the challenges and interdependencies between security, real-time, safety and certification, which emerge when introducing networked, autonomous and cooperative functionalities.

Topics of Interest

Authors are invited to submit full and/or short papers related to the following topics of interest (but not limited to):

  • Architecture, design, implementation and management of safe and secure intelligent vehicles

  • Functional safety, standards and certification

  • Security threats to cyber-physical systems

  • Secure data communication in vehicular networks

  • Collision prediction and avoidance

  • Safety and security issues in ADAS

  • Real-time perception and sensor fusion for safe autonomous driving

  • Internet of (Secure) Things (flying, driving, floating, diving, etc)

  • Safe integration of Artificial Intelligence in intelligent vehicles

  • Advanced hardware for self-driving car and their impact on safety/security

  • Regulation issues in intelligent vehicles

  • Practical experiences and testbeds related with safety and security of intelligent vehicles

  • Industrial experiences and best practices relevant to safety and security of intelligent vehicles

This will be the seventh edition of the workshop, aimed at continuing the success of previous editions. The vast range of open challenges to achieve Safety and Security in Intelligent Vehicles (with or without connection with the Internet) is a fundamental reason that justifies the numerous research initiatives and wide discussion on these matters, which we are currently observing everywhere. This year, aimed at providing an increase in the discussion, allowing more researchers to participate in the safety and security strategies in Cyber-Physical Systems, the SSIV+ will be boosted with new topics focused on other kinds of non-conventional ways of transportation.

The successful pairing of man and machine, represented by robotics solutions that augment humans, including wearable exoskeletons, has the potential to make our workforce safer and more productive and provide a non-conventional way of transportation. Human augmentation robots bring together the best of what people and machines have to offer -- combining human experience, wisdom, intuition and judgment with the strength, endurance and precision of machines. So, the exoskeleton, wheelchair, wearable robots, and other kinds will be included in the list of topics of interest.
