Standards to usher in autonomous networked driving - ITU debate focused on Innovative ICT for the Future Car

Geneva, 11 March 2014 - Willing to hand over your keys and entrust your car to drive you from A to B? Participants at ITU's Future Networked Car symposium at the Geneva Motor Show declared that within the next decade some of us will be doing just this.

A dynamic high-level discussion involving industry, international agencies and motorsports bodies focused on Innovation for the Future Car. The televised debate, anchored by former racing driver and presenter of the well-known Fifth Gear TV programme Tiff Needell, included Johan de Nysschen, President of the Infiniti Motor Company; Jeffrey Owens, Chief Technology Officer of Delphi Automotive; Jean Todt, President of the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA); ITU Secretary-General Hamadoun I. Touré; Eva Molnar representing the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE); and T. Russell Shields, Chair of Ygomi.

Agreements on international technical standards and putting in place regulatory requirements are already under way to make it a reality.
