2021 IEEE International Conference on Big Data 2021

Cloud Computing for Big Transportation Data

Transportation systems are being connected like never before imagined. Vast amounts of data, which retain the 5V (volume, velocity, variety, veracity and value) characteristics of big data, will be transmitted from diverse sources across connected transportation systems. Cloud computing platforms provide an extensive computing infrastructure and a wide array of services that are highly available, accessible, and scalable. These platforms exhibit considerable potential for big data management tasks, such as processing, transmitting, and archiving both real-time and archival data. The goal of the workshop is to bring together diverse research communities that apply cloud computing for big transportation data in the rapidly evolving connected and automated transportation domain. This workshop provides a forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to present their latest research findings in emerging areas of cloud computing for big transportation data.
