A team at the UK’s University of Bristol has won an international award for their innovative work on the development of ‘fog computing’ technology for creating the safe and efficient infrastructure required for connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs).

The technology designed by the University is detailed in the paper titled, ‘Agile Data Offloading over Novel Fog Computing Infrastructure for CAVs’, which won an award at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC), held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The VTC event is the flagship conference of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society and attracts the world’s top researches and industrialists in the fields of wireless networks, 5G, and the automotive industry. The paper is a collaboration between the University of Bristol and the Atkins consultancy and was awarded the coveted ‘Best Conference Paper Award’.
