The fully networked car and standardization 

The Eighth Fully Networked Car workshop, organised jointly by ITU, ISO and the IEC, will be held 6-7 March 2013, in association with Geneva's International Motor Show.

 

Last year the event attracted more than 100 experts from around the world, and covered a series of interactive discussions on the need for standardization for electric vehicles, driver distraction and vehicle safety, ITS communications, and standards for cooperative ITS systems. Participants also gained insight into the challenges and opportunities that are present in under-developed markets.

Last year the event attracted more than 100 experts from around the world, and covered a series of interactive discussions on the need for standardization for electric vehicles, driver distraction and vehicle safety, ITS communications, and standards for cooperative ITS systems. Participants also gained insight into the challenges and opportunities that are present in under-developed markets.

The 2013 Fully Networked Car Workshop will also cover further developments in these areas and any new solutions or challenges that have arisen since 2012. 

Key objectives for the workshop program are:

  • How do manufacturers feel about recent industry changes and current needs for standardization - what's new?
  • Where is the networked car going in the years ahead?
  • Current challenges in technology and applications for the networked car.
  • Setting priorities in standardization for the next year - are they the same as last year - charging interfaces, active safety, device management, communication protocols, identification, and authentication?

The contributions and expertise provided by the panelists and the audience will help foster a better understanding of the challenges the auto industry faces over the coming years, and how international standards can help the industry to continue to meet customer needs.

This year's workshop will be moderated by Richard Parry-Jones, a former industry executive with the Ford Motor Company. Confirmed panelists so far are from Bosch, Panasonic Automotive, Ygomi, Dekra, SAE International, Red Bend Software and VDA (German Auto Association).   

Please consider joining ITU, ISO and IEC for what should be a very interactive and insightful event and by 22 February 2013.
