Abstract: The autonomous driving is coming. Notably, newly all car manufactures have implemented the Level 2 autonomous driving in their new car models including lane centering, adaptive emergency braking. The Tesla has released Free Self-Driving 2 package on their cars which enables Level 4 autonomous driving in the city. In the meantime, 3GPP released NR CV2X in 2017 to promote the inter-vehicular communications. The enhanced computing facility, fast evolving artificial intelligence
technology, coupled with the standardized radio interface, has provide new possibilities for vehicular communications. This workshop hunts for new ideas, proposals and architecture that involve the new technologies into the design of more intelligence, efficient and secured vehicular communications.
