Ottawa L5 Autonomous Vehicle Test Track Tour @ NCC Greenbelt Research Farm
Oct 17 @ 10:00 – 12:00
Ottawa L5 Autonomous Vehicle Test Track Tour @ NCC Greenbelt Research Farm | Ottawa | Ontario | Canada

Ottawa Life Member Affinity Group presents: Ottawa L5, the first integrated Connected & Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) test environment in North America.

 

The Ottawa L5 private test track is a 1,866 acre, fenced and gated private facility with 16 kilometres of paved roads. The largest secure test facility for CAVs in Canada, the Ottawa L5 private test track creates an ideal proving ground for the safe and productive pre-commercial development, testing, validation and demonstration of CAV technologies. The Ottawa L5 testing facilities are equipped with GPS (RTK), dedicated short range communications (DSRC), Wi-Fi, 4G/LTE and 5G telecommunications and networking infrastructure, making it the first integrated CAV test environment of its kind in North America. Find more information at: https://www.investottawa.ca/ottawal5

 

Tour will last about an hour involving a walk around the site and a group discussion of various technical aspects of the L5 facility. An additional treat is the possibility of an autonomous shuttle ride at the site for some attendees.

Please register in advance with wolfram.lunscher@ieee.org by Friday October 11. Priority will be given to Life members. All members and family are welcome. There is an online liability waiver to be signed. The link will be provided to registrants.

5G for Smart Everything: From Smart Meters to the New Power Grid. What is needed to get there? @ Building M-36, National Research Council (NRC) Canada
Nov 12 @ 14:00 – 15:00

Title: 5G for Smart Everything: From Smart Meters to the New Power Grid. What is needed to get there ?

Speaker: Akshay Sharma, Executive Research Fellow, neXtCurve: www.next-curve.com

Date/TimeTuesday, November 12, 2019, from 2 – 3 pm.

Admission: Free, but registration is required for security purposes. Please contact by e-mail: branislav @ieee.org or ajit.pardasani@ieee.org.

 

Abstract: This talk discusses how 5G with Edge Computing, and Ultra-low latency (sub-5ms) with Gigabit speed bandwidth will be a game changer with Smart Meters and a new Electric Grid can be enabled with Smart Lamposts. As we transition to DevOps, AIOps, newer Closed Loop Automation systems will occur. As we connect AI-powered Virtual Personal Assistants to IoT devices in the home, now we have to imagine the entire macro-infrastructures being all hyper-connected. What is needed to get there will be discussed at the seminar.
