Carleton University’s Richard Yu, professor in the School of Information Technology in the Faculty of Engineering and Design, will host a demonstration of connected autonomous vehicle technology and simulated cyberattacks on the automobile’s collective artificial intelligence (AI) system.

**Please Note**

Due to weather this event has been rescheduled to Thursday, April 11.
(Originally scheduled for Wednesday, April 10)

When: Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 2:30 p.m.
Where: Library Road (behind Lanark, Frontenac and Grenville Residences), Carleton University
Info: A campus map is available online.

Media are invited to attend the event.

While connected autonomous vehicles are seen by many as the transportation of the future, the technology remains challenging. Unlike other AI systems that focus on a single vehicle, Yu’s team is taking an innovative “collective intelligence” approach –where data is shared between smart road infrastructure and the automobile. In this demonstration, Yu’s team will show the effectiveness of this approach, the vulnerabilities of AI-enabled connected autonomous vehicles and the advanced security mitigation measures that can be taken to address these challenges.

This demonstration is part of Yu’s research into cutting-edge technologies to secure connected and autonomous vehicles. This project is supported by Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP), Transport Canada and Blackberry QNX.
