Openly Collaborate and Incubate Solutions to Drive Trusted Adoption of New Tech Applications
The IEEE Industry Connections (IC) program helps incubate new standards by facilitating collaboration among interested stakeholders as they hone and refine their thinking on rapidly changing technologies. Check out the Mobility related activities below.
Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Week
E&IP@ATD is the premier venue for automobile manufacturers, suppliers, semiconductor vendors, tool providers, engineers, scientists, educators, and the media to share groundbreaking ideas along with implementation strategies and applications related to automotive Ethernet systems. The main deliverable is an annual conference and exhibition on the application of Ethernet and Internet standards in the automotive environment.
New Ethernet Applications
The growing diversity of applications for Ethernet requires new standards to be developed at a rapid pace. This is evident by recent standardization activities related to 2.5 Gb/s, 5 Gb/s, and 25 Gb/s Ethernet, as well as subsequent conversations related to introducing new Ethernet solutions at these rates.
Big Data Governance and Metadata Management (BDGMM)
Governance and metadata management poses unique challenges with regard to the big data paradigm shift. The governance lifecycle needs to be sustainable from creation, maintenance, depreciation, archiving, and deletion due to volume, velocity, and variety of big data changes and can be accumulated whether the data is at rest, in motion, or in transactions.
Data Trading System
PLC-IoT Interoperability and Compliance Testing
This IC activity will focus on selection of the labs for the testing, analysis, and publication of the results, identification of the ambiguities, and gaps in the standard and related test procedures, generation of additional use cases, and broader industry engagement with the goal of the acceleration of the adoption of IEEE Std 1901.1
The Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems
This initiative brings together experts in fields relating to autonomous systems (e.g., robotics, artificial intelligence, computational intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, cognitive computing, affective computing) to identify and address the ethical considerations related to the design of autonomous systems and the issues they involve.
Power Line Communication (PLC) in India
This IC program will bring together various stakeholders such as industry, academia, and utility companies, to establish a series of test beds for PLC. The test beds will provide an ecosystem for various stakeholders, ranging from established industries to enterprising startups, to develop and test their solutions that have PLC as the core technology.
Blockchain Asset Exchange
This program will design and develop a decentralized trading platform where entities and individuals can collaborate on creating, transferring, and capitalizing intellectual properties. Instead of a centralized authority, blockchain-based smart contracts will play the role of endorsing and ensuring every trading operation on the platform.
Public Knowledge Graphs (PDF)
This activity seeks to identify and support the creation of open, federated graphs of knowledge, using available protocols for storage and mirroring, alignment of different graphs, clustering and disambiguation, annotation, tracing, and adding provenance. The focus will be on public knowledge and public interfaces, and on machine-mediated access and knowledge representations, for constructing world and local models for machine learning.
The Ethics Certification Program for Autonomous and Intelligent Systems (ECPAIS)
The goal of the IEEE Ethically Aligned Certification Program for Autonomous and Intelligent Systems (ECPAIS) initiative is to provide the world’s first (based on our research) specification and body of its kind to enable a badge or mark for A/IS products, services, and systems. Specifically, ECPAIS will enable these badges or marks based on the processes organizations seeking certification have undertaken to earn them.
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Testbed Development for Dynamic Road Traffic Management and Control at Electronic City—Bangalore, India
Our main objective is to develop a test bed for the traffic management and control to regulate the traffic in one part of the city using 10-12 signal junction points. For example, Electronic City; the industrial corridor of Bangalore, would be investigated, a feasibility study will be undertaken, and a test bed will be developed.
Assessment of Standardization Gaps for Safe Automated Driving
Safety comes first for automated driving. Policy makers expect that AVs will significantly reduce the number of road fatalities (zero-accident vision). New technologies impose new challenges on safety engineering.
Existing standards need to be evolved, and new standards are needed to ensure safety despite increasing automated driving complexity.
The IEEE Applied Artificial Intelligence Systems (AIS) Risk and Impact Framework Initiative
This group proposes to address an applied risk framework or assessment for AIS. In order to achieve these goals, the group will assess existing risk approaches in the fields of finance, cybersecurity, and more, identify gaps introduced by AI, and determine an approach to create a fit-to-purpose applied assessment for AI to determine level of risk and identify approaches to mitigate risk.
Nurturing the Era of E2E MaaS: Standards for Connected and Autonomous Transportation
There is a shift from individually owned vehicles toward interconnected shared mobility solutions used as an if-and-when needed service [Mobility as a Service (MaaS)]. The digital transformation of transportation is a cross-sector challenge. While vehicle manufacturers drive the evolution of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) toward fully automated cars, the ICT sector’s aspiration is to leapfrog autonomous driving. A broad, open, cross-industry dialogue is needed to exchange views, to debate, and to agree upon common challenges and collaborative activities.
Labeling Cybersecurity Data for AI Automation
Cyber analysts are becoming a bottleneck in analyzing ever-increasing amounts of data. Automating cyber analysts’ actions using AI can help reduce amounts of work for analysts and thereby reduce time to outcome dramatically, record actions in knowledge bases for the training of new cyber analysts, and in general, open up the field for new opportunities. As a result, the state of cybersecurity will improve.
It is envisioned that this group will bring together industry stakeholders to build consensus on priority issues for standardization activities on these topics, and provide a platform for IEEE thought leadership to the industry.
Implementation Roadmap for Systemic EV Adoption in India and Asia
Electric vehicles (EV) are emerging as the option for clean mobility across the world. The EV ecosystem brings together three industry verticals who traditionally have not worked together.
The goal of the IC activity is to bring all together the stakeholders (policy, business, and tech) across auto, power, and digital technologies and create a viable, systemic, and meaningful roadmap for the Indian market.
Alliance for Best Practices and Standards in Smart Cities
This program will bring together technologists, academia, smart city leaders, and other stakeholders to help improve the adoption of standards by cities, greater interoperability, and transparency between cities and regions, the development of best practices and KPIs from real cases, and help identify/prioritize new standards for urban environments.
