Committed to connecting the world



On Thursday 5 March 2020, ITU and UNECE welcomed you to the Symposium on the Future Networked Car (FNC 2020) within the 90th Geneva International Motor Show  which took place in the ITU Headquarters, Montbrillant Building, in Room Popov.

Intelligent transport systems and automated driving support functions are already implemented on the roads and in all classes of vehicles. Vehicle manufacturers, system suppliers and new market entrants are investing significantly in research and development of highly automated driving systems within a more realistic recognition of how quickly they can move toward commercialisation. The newest vehicles operating on intelligent transport infrastructures are today delivering on the promise of improved road safety, reduced congestion and emissions, while increasing the accessibility and  personal mobility to the society. But there is more to be done, and this is why the Symposium on the Future Networked Car was such a great opportunity to learn more.

Each year, beginning in 2005, the Symposium on the Future Networked Car has brought together representatives of the automotive, information technology, and communications industries, along with government leaders, to discuss the status and future of vehicle communications and automated driving. It is held to coincide with the Geneva International Motor Show on the Motor Show’s first public day.

FNC 2020 panellists examined the latest advances in the areas of vehicle connectivity, cybersecurity, applications of artificial intelligence (AI), and the global regulatory framework that will support deployment of more highly automated mobility solutions. The Symposium explored ​the relationships between vehicle communications and automated driving by analysing the crucial role of the latest 5G connectivity technologies in delivering safer and more effective transport. Collaboration among the various standards bodies is essential to ensure a successful and speedy implementation, and this topic will be in focus during the panel discussions.
