Objectives :
Explore the basic communication issues for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and how communication between the vehicle and telecommunication infrastructure takes place.
Explore ways to resolve the different points of view between political and regulatory bodies which may require the use of different media in different places, and the needs of car manufacturers wishing to supply, worldwide, the same in-car equipment.
Understand how vehicles communicate with each other.

This session will present current thinking and developments aiming to achieve these goals.

14:00-15:30 Session 2: Safety (vehicle and passenger safety, emergency services) (Part I) [Introduction]

Analyse how automatic e-calls automatically generated messages following an accident for example, that are sent by a vehicle.s computer system to the emergency services can be generated and handled in the mobile system.
Understand how mobile networks can be used for road safety enhancement.
Understand what kind of automatic components may be used and what kind of medical data should be transmitted.
Understand how road traffic accidents can be prevented by using different predictive technology in the vehicle and what kind of system architectures are able to simplify governing, displaying and sending e-call data.

These questions will be examined with a view towards standardization because many believe that the adoption of coordinated measures is a fundamental issue if safety of vehicles is to be increased and an effective and fast e-call system implemented. Session Chair: Mr B. Fiebig, T-Mobile Traffic GmbH
