ITU/IMDA Workshop on How Communications will Change Vehicles and Transport
Singapore, 6-7 July 2017
Intelligent transport systems (ITS) and automated driving are fast moving toward widespread commercialization and market acceptance. High levels of automation – the penultimate step to fully automated driving – are expected on the road by 2020 and hold great promise to improve road safety, reduce congestion and emissions, and increase the accessibility of personal mobility.
On 6 July 2017, a workshop jointly organized by ITU and the Info-communications Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA)
examined advances in the area of vehicle communications, from the perspectives of technology, business, and regulation. Sessions discussed, inter alia
, connectivity options for connected vehicles and automated driving; cybersecurity for automotive communications; and the role to be played by artificial intelligence and machine learning in future transport systems.
On 7 July 2017, the meeting of the Collaboration on ITS Communication Standards
reviewed the state of ITS communication standards and discussed the road ahead.
A draft agenda and meeting documentation was made available at http://itu.int/go/ITScomms
The target audience of these international events includes government representatives, policymakers 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.
