Experts to discuss intelligent transport technologies at Geneva Motor Show

Key industry experts will meet next week to debate technologies related to the concept of intelligent transport at an ITU-organized workshop during the Geneva Motor Show.

"The Fully Networked Car," the fifth annual workshop presented by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) along with the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission), will take place March 3-4 and focuses on the hurdles faced during rollout of new intelligent transport systems.

"Systems are under development that link vehicle-to-car, providing safety information; and vehicle-to-infrastructure, improving traffic management and providing access to a wide variety of in-car services, from advanced location-based applications to entertainment and online information," the ITU states in a release. "Some predict that, with the advent of electric cars, vehicles may even become moving storage units for tomorrow’s smart electricity grids.

"An essential ingredient is globally agreed standards produced by ITU, ISO and IEC."

The event will draw experts and executives from the car industry, ICT community, governments, research and development institutes and academia.
