IEEE Student at a Glance and Why is the Internet of Autonomous Vehicles not as Plug and Play as we Think? A Computer Networks Perspective

The IEEE KIET Student Branch presented these exclusive webinars with the support of IEEE Karachi Section SAC. The webinars were very informative sessions for the participants to know about the emerging trends in IEEE, and how and why IEEE is important in grooming a student and enhancing his /her capabilities. The speaker M Rafay Shaikh shared his own journey on how he joined the SAC team and now becoming the SSR of the SAC Karachi Section team (2020-2021). He listed the events that he attended through the platform of IEEE that enhanced his skills and scholarships that students can avail. Dr. Sameer then extensively discussed how the ‘Internet of Autonomous Vehicles’ or IAV is very likely to exist in the near future. He further drew analogies from legacy internet in comparison to IAV which uses data packets instead of cars. The solutions to the problems could be used to solve algorithms related to IAVs. He showed examples of an autonomous vehicle in the shape of Domino’s self-driving delivery van, and how the internet of cars would be similar to a computer network by showing a working simulation of data packets travelling from one destination to another.
