    ITU to Hold Workshop on How Communications Change Vehicles and Transport

    Date published: 5 July 2017

    The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), in cooperation with the Info-communications Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA), will convene a workshop on How Communications Change Vehicles and Transport on July 6 and a meeting of the Collaboration on ITS Communication Standards on July 7. Both events will take place in Singapore.

    The ITU/IMDA workshop will examine advances in the area of vehicle communications, from the perspectives of technology, business and regulation. Sessions will discuss, 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. The meeting of the Collaboration on ITS Communication Standards will review the state of ITS communication standards and discuss the road ahead.

    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.

    The target audience of these international events includes government representatives, policymakers and regulators; technical staff and decision makers at vehicle manufacturers, Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEMs), suppliers, network operators and service providers; analysts and market researchers; technical experts involved in standardization; and members of the interested public.

    Participation is open to ITU Member States, Sector Members, Associates and Academic Institutions and to any individual from a country which is a member of ITU. This includes individuals who are also members of international, regional and national organizations.

    Based in Geneva, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is the leading United Nations agency for information and communication technologies with 191 member states and more than 700 sector members and associates. ITU role is to enable the global growth and sustained development of ICT. In addition, ITU organizes international telecom events like WSIS and Telecom Africa.
