5 March: Symposium on the Future Networked Car
The Symposium on the Future Networked Car within the 90th Geneva International Motor Show, 5 March 2020, will bring together the automotive and ICT industries to explore advances in connected, automated vehicles and associated implications for technology, business and regulation.
The symposium is convened by ITU and UNECE. Participation is free of charge and open to all.
2020 will mark the 15th edition of the symposium.
The series of symposia has made clear that the future of mobility looks to be electric; highly automated; and, increasingly, shared.
Connected, automated vehicles show great potential to reduce the 1.3 million deaths on our roads each year, but their success in improving road safety will depend on their success in gaining public trust.
The upcoming symposium will discuss the technical, business and regulatory actions required to build this public trust.
It will highlight the state of the art in automotive cybersecurity. It will discuss the route towards an International Driving Permit for the AI ‘drivers’ in control of automated vehicles. It will explore the status and future of safety-critical radiocommunications for the road. And it will present the latest developments in the review of regulations governing road transport.
Confirmed speakers and moderators include:
- Jean Todt, President of FIA and UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Road Safety
- T. Russell Shields, President and CEO, RoadDB
- Roger C. Lanctot, Associate Director, Global Automotive Practice, Strategy Analytics
- Michael L. Sena, Editor, The Dispatcher
- Ian Yarnold, Head, International Vehicle Standards Division, U.K. Department for Transport
- Bilel Jamoussi, Chief, ITU-T Study Groups Department, ITU
- Francois Guichard, WP.29/GRVA Secretary, UNECE
The symposium will be followed by a meeting of the Collaboration on Intelligent Transport System (ITS) Communication Standards at ITU Headquarters, 6 March 2020, an open platform to advance the development of globally harmonized ITS communication standards.
