7th ETSI ITS Workshop
The ETSI Workshop on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) will take place in Helmond, The Netherlands on 26 – 27 March 2015.
The event will be hosted by ITRI.
We have reached maximum hosting capacity and have to now close registration.
2014 was the year where the first version of the Release 1 Cooperative ITS was released by ETSI and CEN.
At the end of 2014, the EC DG MOVE took the initiative to create a C-ITS deployment platform to bring together the different stakeholders to assist the introduction of Cooperative ITS in Europe.
Objective of the event
With these exciting activities in 2014, this workshop will provide:
- a status of the ongoing activities to facilitate the deployment of Cooperative ITS, not only in Europe but also around the globe,
- an insight into some of the challenges bringing the standardized technologies from paper into operational deployments, such as the regulatory aspects, the technical challenges and the testing aspects,
- an insight into some of the key aspects of the features of the Release 1 of the standards and how maintenance and error correction of standards are being handled,
- last, an overview of what comes next, e.g. what can be expected for the next releases, what the visions and initial plans for the next Releases are, and whether the Cooperative ITS can be used in places other than the public road infrastructure.
This event is of particular interest to:
- Decision makers for ITS infrastructure deployments
- Traffic and mobility manager,
- Vehicle and Equipment manufacturers / suppliers
- Service providers
- Policy makers
On 25th March, from 16:00 till 19:00, Look behind the scenes of the 4th Cooperative Mobility Services Plugtest
- See Live interoperability test sessions of ITS equipment vendors
- Meet ITS protocol engineers and security experts
- Discover latest protocol and radio performance test setups
Participation is open to all upon registration.
Automotive Week in Helmond, 25 March - 1 April 2015
Getting from A to B more efficiently, safer, cleaner and more comfortably. The development of new technology, leading concepts and the interaction between the road user, roadside and vehicle becomes for real in the Netherlands.
