Collaboration on ITS Communication Standards reviewed the state of ITS communication standards and discussed the road ahead.
The target audience of the events included government representatives, policy makers and regulators; technical staff and decision makers at vehicle manufacturers, OEMs, suppliers, network operators and service providers; analysts and market researchers; technical experts involved in standardization; and members of the interested public.
