Geneva, 25 February 2010
What: Fifth ITU, ISO and IEC Fully Networked Car@Geneva Motor Show
When: 3-4 March 2010
Where: Geneva Motor Show, PALEXPO, Geneva
Why: Key industry experts will debate new technologies that will see our cars become more and more a part of the information and communications technology (ICT) network.
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.
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.
This year’s Fully Networked Car workshop will focus on some of the hurdles facing the rollout of these new intelligent transport systems.
The Fully Networked Car@Geneva Motor Show is an annual event. For 2010, the GreenGT electric racing car from GreenGT SA, Switzerland, will be an eye-catching enticement to visitors, as well as proof that cutting-edge can also be green.
Who: As in other years, the event will draw experts and executives from the car industry, ICT community, governments, research and development institutes and academia. Journalists and the general public are welcome to attend.
