An executive roundtable hosting representatives of regulatory authorities and industry associations will highlight the governance challenges borne of the convergence of the automotive and ICT industries.

The technical sessions to follow the roundtable will focus on the importance of 5G systems to automotive innovation; the relationship between vehicle communications and automated driving; cybersecurity and data protection; and the role to be played by artificial intelligence and machine learning in future transport systems.

Participants will also debate the modes of collaboration with the greatest potential to lead to the agreement of a cohesive set of technical standards for connected vehicles and intelligent transport systems (ITS).
