  The Fully Networked Car Workshop
 PALEXPO, Geneva, 7 - 9 March 2007 Contact:  
A major event on the fast moving market of information and communication technologies in motor vehicles is being organized by the World Standards Cooperation, the entity comprising ITU1, ISO2 and IEC3, at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2007, one of the world’s leading automotive events. The event includes a workshop from 7 to 9 March 2007, accompanied by an exhibition from 6 to 10 March. Some two hundred and fifty square meters will be made available for the exhibition to showcase new products and concepts to an audience which includes high-level decision makers and media – in addition to the traditional audience of the motor show, an expected 800,000 visitors. The event will bring together the key specialists in the field, from top decision makers to engineers, designers, planners, government officials, regulators, standards experts and others.

It is essential for all stakeholders to come to grips with an area that is having a profound influence on how motor vehicles are developed, experienced and sold, and that represents an ever-increasing share of added value and innovation in the automotive industry. The convergence of telecommunications and information technologies has given rise to a host of automotive applications. These are both fascinating and complex. They have the potential to vastly improve vehicle safety and mobility, while increasing comfort and enjoyment, but they also raise some fundamental questions. What are the right business models in linking the automotive and telecoms sectors? What are the legal and policy constraints? How do we face the technical and engineering challenges? How do we make sure that the right standards are adopted to deal with the complexity of so many electronic components and to allow this market to develop its full potential? These and many other issues will be discussed.

The goals of the workshop are to shed light on all these questions, to establish a constructive dialogue among all the stakeholders, to reach a better understanding between the telecommunications and automotive sectors and to combine their efforts and skills to create standards that are mutually beneficial.

“The Fully Networked Car” will feature in the marketing of the Geneva Motor Show and will be extensively publicised by the organizers ITU, ISO and IEC.
