5 March 2015: ITU Symposium on the Future Networked Car within the Geneva International Motor Show

The ITU Symposium on the Future Networked Car within the Geneva International Motor Show, 5 March 2015, will bring together representatives of the automotive and ICT industries, governments and their regulators, motor sport and international automobile associations to analyze the status and future of ICTs’ integration in vehicles.

The symposium is free of charge and open to all. Register here to secure your right to participate.

Intelligent transport systems (ITS) and automated driving are fast moving towards widespread commercialization and market acceptance. High levels of automation – the penultimate step to fully automated driving – are expected on the road by 2020, holding great promise to improve road safety, reduce congestion and emissions, and increase the accessibility of personal mobility to the elderly and persons with disabilities.

The ITU Symposium on the Future Networked Car will examine the intersection of automobiles and ICTs from the perspectives of business, technology and regulation. Technical sessions will discuss industry innovation and supporting standardization work in the ITS field, highlighting fundamental requirements and emerging trends in areas such as communication protocols, information security, location referencing and maps.

The symposium will be followed by a meeting of the Collaboration on ITS Communication Standards at ITU Headquarters, 6 March 2015, an open international platform to advance the development of a globally harmonized set of ITS communication standards to support the deployment of interoperable ITS products and services.
