2nd ETSI TC ITS Workshop

The 2nd ETSI TC ITS Workshop, organised and hosted by ETSI in Sophia Antipolis, France, took place on 10-12 February 2010 under the auspices of HEAVY SNOW (Washington DC, Brussels, Munich, ETSI  !!!!)

Despite the weather, 115 people actively participated to this event (against 140 registered).

The agenda included numerous sessions, with presentations given by experts representing organizations such as ETSI, ERTICO, the European Commission and various European Research projects, as well as the private sector and universities.

logo ETSI-ITSThe ETSI TC ITS Workshop provided a thorough overview of the ITS related standards published so far, as well as  including workshop/panel discussions on ongoing standardization activities in TC ITS and presentations of the international standardization activities on Cooperative Systems.

Various ways to deploy Cooperative Systems were presented and discussed; this included addressing the inclusion of infrastructure based networks and applications as well as business models, with specific reference to the corresponding standardization. In addition, experiences from research projects and field operational tests were discussed within a global perspective. Finally, an analysis was made of how the current expertise in Corporative Systems Standardization could be used for other ITS domains such as train management systems, eCustoms, eFreight and the inclusion of pedestrians.
