MESSAGE FROM GLENFORD – please pass this on to anyone who is new and might not be on the distribution list.
We would like to update you on the recent developments in the VANET Research that we are doing here at MDX.
We therefore invite you to a meeting:
When: Wednesday 16th November from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Where: Committee Room 3 in the Town Hall
In brief, we have implemented the MDX VANET Testbed on the Hendon Campus: see www.vanet.mdx.ac.uk. This testbed is about to be extended to cover the section of A41 (Watford Way) behind the Campus.
In addition, working along with the Centre for Telecommunications Research (CTR) at Kings College London (KCL), we have managed to secure a grant from the Department for Transport (DfT) to build a new VANET Testbed in Central London along the Strand where KCL is located. This Central London Testbed (CLT) will be connected to our MDX VANET Testbed using Software Defined Networking (SDN) via the JANET network to form a Federated VANET Cloud System. This system will allow us to do VANET experiments in two different environments.
We hope to see you at the meeting.
Dr Glenford Mapp (Associate Professor)
Head of VANET Research Group @MDX
