WINTER SCHOOL on Computing & IoT Technologies for Mobility in 2-Wheelers and Electric 2-Wheelers

Hosted by Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) Sri City, AP

Date: 7th to 9th December, 2023

About the event :

In India, south east Asia and SAARC countries there are more than 50 million 2-wheelers. With the advent of electric vehicles, this number is set to increase exponentially. Given the enormous number of accidents taking place in two-wheelers, the next generation of 2-wheelers need to have ICT based advanced safety features and autonomous/auto-pilot mode to help the rider in real-time. In this regard, IIIT Sri City takes the lead and is hosting an IEEE ITSS Winter School on Sensing, Communication, Computing and IoT for 2-wheeler mobility. This is the 1st Winter school of IEEE ITSS to be held outside USA.

IEEE ITSS Awareness Campaign/Seminar on Two-Wheeler Safety and Mobility Technologies

Hosted by Ahmedabad University, Gujarat

Date: 3rd and 4th November, 2023

About the event :

This campaign is intended to create awareness on the nature of accidents that happen while riding 2- wheelers. Importantly it will discuss and debate how accidents can be avoided in 2-wheelers by using simple yet powerful ICT-based technologies. This IEEE ITSSS sponsored symposium would be in blended mode and would be hosted by Ahmedabad University, Gujarat, India

Safety Measures in Two-Wheeler Mobility in Developing Countries

Hosted by Marwadi University, Rajkot

Date : 16th to 18th October, 2023

About the event :

As per World Health Organization, the number of lives lost in India in road accidents is nearly 150,000 yearly. Of these, around 50% of them are caused by two-wheelers accidents. This is because, in R10 (India, South Asia), a two-wheeler costs less than 1000 USD and is necessary for everyday earnings and daily activities rather than being a luxury vehicle for biking. Being a thin-profile vehicle, the inherent safety mechanisms in two-wheelers are significantly less. Also, being cost-sensitive, computationally extensive devices such as GPUs cannot be installed in two-wheelers. Given the chaotic/less-disciplined traffic on the roads, ensuring two-wheeler safety in the increasing traffic scenario is extremely important. Safety is a primary mission that must be addressed at any stage. Therefore, this tutorial promotes two-wheeler safety in developing countries (especially R10). This includes demonstrating technical features, identifying research challenges, and bringing social awareness about its importance in society.
