Symposium on the Future Networked Car (FNC 2020)

On Thursday 5 March 2020, ITU and UNECE will convene the Symposium on the Future Networked Car (FNC 2020) within the 90th Geneva International Motor Show, where the C-Roads Platform will be visible with a presentation.

Intelligent transport systems and automated driving support functions are already implemented on the roads and in all classes of vehicles. Highly automated driving developments continue apace, albeit with a more realistic view of how quickly they can move toward commercialisation. The newest vehicles operating on a more intelligent transport infrastructure are today delivering on the promises to improve road safety, reduce congestion and emissions, and increase the accessibility of personal mobility to the elderly and persons with disabilities. There is more to be done, and this is why the Symposium on the Future Networked Car is held.

Each year, beginning in 2005, the Symposium on the Future Networked Car has brought together representatives of the automotive, information technology, and communications industries, along with government leaders, to discuss the status and future of vehicle communications and automated driving. It is held at the venue for the Geneva International Motor Show on the Motor Show’s first public day.

FNC 2020 panellists will examine the latest advances in the areas of vehicle connectivity, cybersecurity, applications of artificial intelligence (AI), and the global regulatory framework that will support deployment of more highly automated mobility solutions. The Symposium will explore the relationships between vehicle communications and automated driving by analysing the crucial role of the latest 5G connectivity technologies in delivering safer and more effective transport. Collaboration among the various standards bodies is essential to success, and this topic will be in focus during the panel discussions.
