Research Area

Since the establishment of our laboratory in 1996, we, VILab(Vehicle Intelligence Lab.), have researched in the networks and security area and continuously gotten many SCI papers published in IEEE such as TON(Transactions on Networking), JSAC(Journal on Selected Area in Communications). Furthermore, we announced the research result in several famous international conferences like INFOCOM, ICC, GLOBECOM, etc. In 2009, we established the Intelligent Vehicle IT Research Center funded by the Korean Government, and we started the intelligent vehicle research. Now we are conducting various researches for the intelligent vehicle.
