On 8 March 2018, ITU and UNECE convened the Symposium on the Future Networked Car (FNC-2018) within the 88th Geneva 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, FNC-2018 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.​

Technical sessions examined advances in the area of road safety taking advantage of connected vehicles (V2V, V2X) and automotive innovation from the perspectives of business, technology ​​and regulation. The Symposium explored the relationship between vehicle communications and automated driving analysing the crucial roles of connectivity, cybersecurity, blockchain, virtual reality and artificial intelligence. The symposium discussed how standards bodies can best collaborate to meet industry needs and to achieve interoperability.

The event was supported by Dekra, Qualcomm and Green Hills. (Contact:
