The Symposium on The Future Networked Car

​​On 9 March 2017, ITU and UNECE convened ​the Symposium on The Future Networked Car within the 87thGeneva International Motor Show.

Intelligent transport systems and automated driving are fast moving towards widespread commercialization and market acceptance. High levels of automation – the penultimate step to fully automa​ted 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 to the elderly and persons with disabilities.

Held on the first public day of the Geneva International Motor Show, this international symposium brought together representatives of vehicle manufacturers, the automotive and information and communication technology (ICT) industries, governments and their regulators to discuss the status and future of vehicle communications and automated driving. The Future Networked Car examined advances in the area of connected vehicles, from the perspectives of business, technology and policy.​

Technical sessions focused on the importance of 5G systems to automotive innovation; the relationship between vehicle communications and automated driving; cybersecurity and data protection; and the role to be played by artificial intelligence and machine learning in future transport systems. Participants also debated the modes of collaboration with the greatest potential to lead to the agreement of a cohesive set of technical standards for connected vehicles and intelligent transport systems (ITS).
