The Mandate 453 on Cooperative ITS addresses the technical standardization need for the deployment of interoperable cooperative systems and beyond. This session reports on the progress made in 2010 as well as providing an outlook to the 2011 activities, and will discuss the best way to contribute to the activities foreseen in the mandate.

Panellists:

SESSION 3 :  PANEL :THE GLOBAL DEPLOYMENT OF COOPERATIVE SYSTEMS
Moderator: Soeren Hess, ETSI TC ITS Chairman

Within the frame of high level agreements between the European Union, US Department of Transportation and the Japanese communication ministries on  global activities to harmonize standardisation and cooperative ITS applications as well as a roadmap for deployment, this high level managers round table  will provide the latest news on the global activities and discuss the way forward to achieve global interpretability for cooperative ITS when implemented and deployed in a few years.

 

SESSION 4 : COOPERATIVE SYSTEMS - USE CASES, APPLICATIONS, SERVICES and INTEGRATION
Moderator: Gérard Ségarra, Renault, ETSI TC ITS WG1 Chairman

Cooperative systems aim to warn and assist people while on the move, safety applications to reduce accidents and increase traffic efficiency and sustainable driving. The usage of local dynamic maps and environmental notifications can also provide for location based services and information. This includes information where a free car-park is available, what the prices look like at the next petrol station, to pay your road toll electronically and which waterbus you have to take to reach this workshop's location. This session intends to answer questions like: How does both safety information and location based services get fed to the cooperative systems network or will location based services be provided by Smart Phones?  Is it required to classify and manage that information flow in a standardized way?  How does one know what type of information is available at a given location? Are international aspects considered satisfactory, e.g. information is provided in your desired language even when abroad? Has standardization addressed this already? What research activities are going on here?

SESSION 5 CONNECTIVITY VERSUS TECHNOLOGY
Moderator: Christoph Wöste, Bundesnetzagentur, ETSI TC ITS WG4 Chairman

Having been published in summer 2010 the standard IEEE 802.11p (Wireless Access for the Vehicular Environment) is a long standing candidate for becoming widely accepted as the physical layer standard for cooperative systems communications. However, alternative access methods such as Self-organising Time Division Multiple Access (STDMA) as well as the usage of other radio technologies such as LTE TDD are still being discussed. This session tries to find out if a convergence for a specific technology is already present. Furthermore, it should become clear what commitments the silicon makers can do. What is the easiest implementation, what the most difficult one? Is there a trade-off between those aspects?

  • Possible migration path from CSMA towards a STDMA based
    Katrin Sjoberg, Halmstad University, Sweden

 

SESSION 6 INSIDE ARCHITECTURE, OUTSIDE ARCHITECTURE
Moderator: Knut Evensen, Q-Free, ETSI TC ITS WG2 Chairman

In September 2010 the standard ETSI EN 302 665 specifying the ITS Communications Architecture has been published. Although the architecture has been designed in a modular way that allows flexible usage and implementation it is still required to harmonize the internal interfaces between the modules and the interfaces to the external world. This session examines to which extent cross layer harmonization is required. What elements do really need a streamlined approach? What efforts are necessary to achieve a common understanding when connecting to the external world and vice-versa? Is standardization taking this into account? What are the relations to ITS service and application providers? Can legacy ITS systems be integrated seamlessly?

SESSION 7: WOULD YOU BE MY VALENTINE?
Moderator: Hans Schade Hans-Joachim, Convenor CEN/TC278/WG16 and ISO/TC204/WG18

The European Commission mandate on Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems requires the synchronization among the European Standards Organizations on one hand, on the other hand it recommends to collect feedback from stakeholders affected by that standardization work. This session intends to verify if all the bits and bytes of standardization fit to each other, to identify shortcomings and potential show-stoppers and to find proposals for challenging standardization issues. In addition, the session offers the possibilities to present topics that should be considered by standardization additionally.
