Bruno Vieira was born in Porto, Portugal in 1996.
He has a MSc degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from ISEP, completed during his initial 2 years of research work carried out at CISTER, in line with the SafeCOP project. Primarily, his work was focused on Vehicular Platooning, aiming at developing simulation tools to evaluate such scenarios, bridging autonomous control and wireless inter-vehicle communications, focusing on the ETSI ITS-G5 standard and its adequacy to platooning. From this work, a state of the art simulation tool has emerged, COPADRIVe, a tool that brings together network and robotic simulations for C-ITS scenarios using ROS, Gazebo and OMNet++.
Recently, additional work has been carried out focusing on wireless intra-vehicular networking, enabled by the IEEE 802.15.4 standard, always aiming at applying wireless communications technologies to transportation systems, for these to become increasingly intelligent, autonomous, safe and secure.
