Standards for Connected and Autonomous Transportation

Nurturing the Era of e2e Mobility as a Service (MaaS):  Standards for Connected and Autonomous Transportation
2 - 3 December 2019 | Munich, Germany

Where do we stand on Autonomous Vehicles?

Join us (again) to map the future of end-2-end (e2e) Mobility as a Service (MaaS) enabled through connected and autonomous transportation.

Mobility-as-a Service (MaaS) describes a shift from individually owned vehicles towards interconnected mobility solutions used on an “if-and-when needed service.” Autonomous vehicles will open up currently unknown opportunities for e2e ‘ MaaS.’ The car or ship as a stand-alone product will be replaced by a system of vehicles, infrastructure, and service provider platforms co-existing in complex interaction. Such a mobility eco system will need adequate standards, to help enable the smooth integration of its constituents.

This event invites key stakeholders to debate how to advance Autonomous Vehicles and e2e MaaS. Key industry leaders will share their vision. You meet, discuss, and debate the tech and business challenges while figuring out how standardization can help to solve issues in the eco-system which cannot be solved by a single company alone but require consensus among stakeholders.

Why Join?

  • Shape the future of e2e MaaS, autonomous vehicles and intelligent transportation systems
  • Learn and engage with key industry players
  • Grow your market through standards
  • Add scalability to your market prospects
  • Take advantage of networking opportunities
  • Share your ideas and concepts and get feedback from peers
  • Find supporters of your ideas   

Who Should Participate?

  • Vehicle manufacturers and automotive suppliers 
  • Autonomous Vehicle Developers
  • Software and internet companies
  • Semiconductor firms
  • Telecom operators
  • Road operators
  • Mobility service providers
  • Transportation Infrastructure Stakeholders
  • Industry Alliances
  • Academics
  • Research institutions
  • Start-ups and scale ups

Challenges

  • Disruptive Game Changer or Evolution of Existing Automotive Solutions
  • Technology Enablers for Autonomous Vehicles – Industry Trade Offs 
  • Vehicle Platforms and Platform Business
  • Infrastructure for Autonomous Vehicles 
  • Hitting the Safety Spot despite security risks

Participants will shed some light on whether the vehicle manufacturers approach to ADAS evolution or the ICT sector’s aspiration to leapfrogging autonomous transportation is more feasible.

 

Window of Opportunity

The automotive industry is in transition. The entire eco-system is under strain. ICT drives innovations of automotive OEMS. New entrants challenge incumbents. There are tremendous growth opportunities for those who shape the future of the industry. Others will fail to adapt and cease to exist.

All stakeholders benefit from a coordinated evolution of enabling technologies, the value chain, and business models under the umbrella of ideally self-regulated boundary conditions.

IEEE provides platforms for open collaboration to facilitate a smooth transition of the automotive eco-system. Standards related activities including setting of standards are the means to this end. Standards ensure interoperable solutions and significantly reduce risks and costs for individual companies while building trust in new technologies among customers and in public.

Scope of the 2019 Workshop

Autonomous Vehicles will generate and consume an ever-increasing abundance of data.  Exchanging and sharing data is the basis to leverage intelligence hidden in data. New business models can be implemented by monetizing data. An e2e data infrastructure will integrate vehicle platforms and platform businesses.

Huge amounts of data need to be managed and governed during the operation of an autonomous vehicle and as the foundation of key engineering processes. ADAS development and validation of safety are two challenging data intensive engineering processes, in particular in the presence of data-based learning techniques.

The workshops will address these challenges of data driven engineering and operation, all evolving around three key themes, which may result in distinct standardization work programs:

  • Achieving Data Interoperability among actors in the mobility eco-system
  • ADAS Engineering including AI for automated driving of Autonomous Vehicles
  • Test solutions and validation methods for safety in the presence of AI in Autonomous Vehicles

The workshop covers two parts:

Part 1: Inform about the IEEE standardization pipeline for road transportation

Examples include:

  • Automotive Ethernet (IEEE 802.3, 802.1)
  • Automotive Image Quality and Performance Testing (P2020)
  • Automated Vehicle Decision Making (P2846)
  • Certificate Management Interfaces for End-Entities (P1609.2.1)
  • … and more

Part 2: Identify standardization gaps to facilitate data driven engineering for autonomous vehicle

Topics to be addressed include:

  • Vehicle platform evolution
  • E2e data interoperability: on-board, off-board, from vehicle to fog to cloud
  • Interoperable engineering tools: for automotive AI, ultimately for safety
  • ADAS engineering
  • Test solutions and validation of safety in the presence of AI for autonomous vehicles

Missed Last Year's Workshop?

Event Recap

IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) partnered with IBM to host a one-day event, which fostered discussions on how to advance End-to-End (e2e) Mobility as a Service through standardization. Key industry leaders such as Amazon Web Services, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, and Rohde & Schwarz were amongst other stakeholders who were invited to share their visions. Several proposals for standards-related activities were made during the workshop. Use the link below to view more 2018 event details.
