With the exponential growth of the global population projected to reach 8.5 billion by 2030, and a significant portion expected to reside in urban centers, effective mobility management becomes paramount to address the ensuing traffic surge. Managing mobility is crucial to prevent congestion on roadways. Concurrently, advancements in technology, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), offer promising solutions to enhance mobility management in cities. Smart city initiatives leverage technologies like Information Communication Technologies (ICT) and IoT to efficiently utilize and oversee infrastructure, resources, transportation, traffic, and services, involving various stakeholders like humans, drones, vehicles, smart devices, and buildings. In this presentation, I will explore how ICT can be leveraged to manage vehicle mobility effectively, while also discussing the potential threats that ICT systems may encounter in this context.

Bio Prof. Ben-Othman received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees both in Computer Science from the University of  Pierre et Marie Curie, (Paris 6) France in 1992, and 1994 respectively. He received his PhD degree from the University of Versailles, France, in 1998. He is full professor at the University of Paris 13 since 2011 and member of L2S lab at CentraleSupélec.  Dr. Ben-Othman's research interests are in the area of wireless ad hoc and sensor networks, VANETs, IoT, performance evaluation and  security in wireless networks in general. He has been appointed as IEEE COMSOC distinguished lecturer from 2015 to 2018 and he is currently IEEE VTS distinguished lecturer where he did several tours all around the world.  He is currently a Visiting Fellow at the Western Academy for Advanced Research.
