advisory panel for standards cooperation on telecommunications related to motor
vehicles (APSC TELEMOV) met recently in Geneva.
meeting followed up on some of the recommendations of the recent ITU-T workshop
The Fully Networked Car - a Workshop on ICT
in Motor Vehicles. Specifically this involved the developing of
an action plan and a number of agreements for participation in other events as
well as increased cooperation with other players in the field.
to Paul Najarian Director of Telecommunication and Standards, for the
Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS
America), the advisory panel has already seen much success in terms
of enhancing cooperation between ITU, ISO,
ETSI, and others.
Najarian said the group is already witnessing close cooperation between ITU-T Study Group 12 and ISO/TC22
on vehicles in the area of HMI (human machine interface). This cooperation will
lead to the submission of a study Question to SG12. Another study Question
on eCall (emergency call notification) will be submitted to an ITU-T study
group, although it has not been decided which one.
similarities between vehicular networks and home networks, the group has agreed
to participate and provide speakers for the October 2005 workshop Opportunities and Challenges in Home
Networking. It also expects to participate and provide speakers
for the 2006 workshop on RFID. Additionally an advisory group representative
will speak on ITS and multimedia at the upcoming ITU-T Study Group 16 meeting.
Participants have also agreed to cooperate with the Asia Pacific Economic
Cooperation (APEC) in order to develop a world report on ITS Standards.
