Good July our dear subscribers,
Welcome back to your own podcast.
Here we are with our routine brief news mini-section to start the podcast, updating you shortly about what is happening around the world of intelligent vehicle and transportation.
This week we have a special guest from Karsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany. Professor Christoph Stiller. He is the head of the Institute of the Measurement and Control Technology. He recently provided a keynote in Paris during the 30th IEEE IV conference. He will be here with us to share some of his view points about autonomous vehicles and research ideas. Jeffrey will conduct the interview.
Also, Our dear Haluk has reviewed a book. This time about railways. As we all can agree this is one of the main modes of transportation and needs special attention to itself. He will talk about the book titled “Detection and Estimation Research of High-speed Railway Catenary” the author of the book is Zhigang Liu.
Dear Listeners, either you are a researcher in Intelligent transportation field or are just interested, don’t hesitate to contact us, we are recruiting volunteers and your help will be highly appreciated.

This was a very interesting episode! Thanks once again to Prof Haluk for reviewing the book “Detection and Estimation Research of High-speed Railway Catenary” by Zhigang Liu.
We’ve seen how V2V and V2I can help mitigate or reduce road accidents and do hope our roads are equipped with more and more of devices and infrastructures to make road transport safer
One of the modes of transportation is Rail. High-speed railway requires catenary as one of its power supply components. The catenary supplies electricity as the motive power and its operation affects the safety rail transportation. Hence, it is critical and important that high-speed railway catenary can be detected and estimated in an efficient manner.
The book reviewed in this section plays a big part in speed railway with electric traction having several advantages. such as heat efficiency, the safety of its passengers or goods, time management, etc. the book introduces a new method & algorithm for the detection of catenary, pantograph, estimation method of the catenary contact, catenary support system, etc. It also introduces the detection and estimation of high-speed railway catenary, test method, statistical properties, detection correction, time-frequency distribution, and at the end developed and shed more light on the quantification method.
This book needs to be given more attention as it points out today’s real-life engineering applications for detection and estimation of high-speed railway catenary especially in developing countries especially Africa that are trying to redefine/create a new rail system in places that there is availability or where they have to start building from scratch.
Here for the book review as usual!
Yet another astonishing review by Prof. Haluk, it is interesting indeed.
It’s good to have Prof. Stiller on board, thanks for a job well done Prof. Maryam
The development of Vera electric cars is a positive one in our bid to archive a fully autonomous cars on our roads.
hopefully it’s operation will be extended to longer and farther distances outside industrial areas as it’s only suited for short distance transportation of large volume of goods.
it’s wonderful to have a book review on rail transport system. i think attention should also be given to rail transport system also. because an effective rail transport system will also help to reduce road congestion.
