Visit of Robin Chase (founder and former CEO of Zipcar – largest car sharing company in US) and Roy Russell (Zipcar’s former CTO)

On the 28th April (yes, a Saturday!), Robin Chase and Roy Russel visited our lab in Aveiro to know more about our work in vehicular communications. We made a visit to the lab and then we finished with a live demo in the cars. It was great to show on site a videoconference between the cars while we were having an emergency service from an emulated ambulance stating that this ambulance was at more than 500 meters away in the highway with several cars in the middle. Both services were working well at this  distance and at 120 Km/h in the highway, and the services were delivered through our IEEE 802.11p! We spent the rest of the day discussing the many possible ways to move forward on providing a full mesh of vehicles! Please check out the photos!
