A World Standards Cooperation event
The workshop is organized every year at the Geneva show by the WSC (World Standards Cooperation), a partnership consisting of the IEC, ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and the ITU (International Telecommunication Union).
It is a unique opportunity for the automotive industry to engage with the three organizations and discuss needs and priorities for international standards in coming years.
This 2012 workshop provide a forum for continuing the strategic discussions taking place between ISO, ITU, and IEC. It will examine the standardization priorities demanded by the car industry in the coming years.
The 2011 programme focussed on driver distraction and how ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) will help drivers stay in better control of their vehicles.
The 2012 workshop will continue the debate on ITS through a series of roundtable panels and discussions on regional ITS perspectives and ITS communications. Other sessions will also look at additional aspects, such as EVs (Electric Vehicles) and electromobility, safety and the car of the future.
A full agenda of the sessions will be given nearer the date of the workshop.
