Keynote: Using Cooperative V2X Communications For Recalibration and Validation of Vehicle Sensor Data
Roger D. Melen is a Senior Advisor at Toyota InfoTech Labs, Mountain View, California, Inc.  For fifteen years he has served providing advice related to the deployment of advanced connected car computer and networking technologies for future connected vehicle designs in both human-driven and robotic self-driving cars containing two-way vehicle wireless networks which promise to rapidly deliver and communicate with vigilance and positive outcomes accurate roadway situation data from within and beyond the typical 300 meters vehicle line-of-sight.

Previously he worked as Vice President R&D of Canon Research Center America for eleven years on the deployment of networked computers in CMOS office and photographic imaging systems. Prior that that he was a founder of Cromemco Inc. an early and dynamic microcomputer company. In his early work he pioneered CCD image sensors in his PhD research at Stanford University 1973 and while in industry has applied for 60 patents. He authored the widely respected IEEE book: CCD Technology and Applications. He has served a member of the Technical Advisory Boards for Cypress Semiconductor Inc. related to cell phone CMOS image sensors, Lumicyte Inc on proteomic spectroscopy, Congral LLC on networked medical conferencing and Fiorano LLC on Internet services.

In 1976 he founded and taught continuously taught EE203 until 2019, the Electrical Engineering class on entrepreneurship at Stanford University inspired by Stanford’s Frederick Terman.

Keynote: Sensory Overload – Cybersecurity Threats for Next Generation Vehicles
Technology is evolving quickly to enable “further-connected” vehicles (V2X), which offer enhanced driver assistance capabilities and communications. As with all connected devices, modern cars are exposed to security risks, expanding a new attack surface for cybercriminals. This session will introduce cutting edge research on autonomous vehicle sensors based on adversarial attacks and controlled field experiments. Our aim is to demonstrate a unique and compelling attack vector affecting the driving policy for a modern vehicle.
