Resumé: We envision connected vehicles as the next transformative technology that enables a wide range of personalized services including safety applications, predictive maintenance, infotainment, personal communication, smart mobility, and pervasive sensing just to name a few. Vehicles will be integrated in the smart-city infrastructure as information provider and service consumer, sensors, and actuators. In particular, electric vehicles will play an important role in the smart-grid supply-consumption chain. In the shorter term, intelligent transportation systems will contribute to report air quality, traffic levels, and reduce dangerous pollution hot spots through eco-friendly car navigation and car-as-a-service programs. Although connected vehicles are is still in their infancy, there is no doubt that in a near future in-vehicle telematics will evolve to embrace consumer electronics thus opening the space for new eco-systems which will include on the “bring-your-own device” paradigm. Users will be allowed to connect their portable device to the car platform thus using their tablets and phones to both monitor and set their highly customized in-vehicle services such as for example car climate and seats setting. The same device will allow users to control some of the vehicles tuning knobs as well as to perform the traditional tasks of a smart phone/tablet. Several Scientific, Societal, and Economical challenges pave the road to bring this vision to reality. In particular, connected car services may need to adapt to the operating context in terms of in terms for example of geographical location, communication capabilities, vehicle nature, operating scenario, etc. Furthermore as the context changes connected cars need to adapt their services to the changing dynamics of the vehicle inhabitants and the surrounding environment. The Ideal Candidate will tackle at one of the scientific challenges focusing on the research problems that prevent a large-scale deployment of advanced in-car services at this stage.
