ICT4CART Special Session (Nov. 12, 2021 @11:00-15:00 CET)

As a novelty, IEEE VNC also hosts a special session of the EU H2020 ICT4CART project on Friday 12 Nov @11:00 CET. The ICT4CART project investigates a versatile ICT infrastructure for highly automated driving and has created a number of impressive demonstrations it wants to showcase. See our program for more details. Attendance is included in the VNC registration.
