Smart, Safe & Trustworthy Transporation
Future vehicles will be more and more connected, automated, and smart due to computerization and software embedded intelligence. 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. Stakeholders from both industries in the converging mobility ecosystem have to work together to build trust in autonomous vehicles by ensuring safety, security, and more.
Build Trust in Autonomous Vehicles
- Enabling technologies for highly automated driving include sensors and sensor fusion, connectivity (intra-vehicle, V2x), high definition maps, and various AI techniques for different purposes including object recognition, path planning, and decision making.
- An autonomous vehicle is not trustworthy without being safe. However, trustworthiness implies reliability, availability, resilience, etc. Additional safety risks due to AI black box embedded functionality must be mitigated. Safety must be secured.
Data Driven Automotive Engineering
- ADAS development and validation of highly automated vehicles are two challenging data intensive engineering processes. Huge amounts of data need to be managed and governed, in particular for machine learning.
- Testing, verification, and validation of autonomous vehicles are a challenge. Standardized solutions are required as the foundation for homologation and type approval.
Vehicle Architecture Evolution and Automotive Platform Business
- Future vehicle architectures will be shaped by ICT technologies. It is expected that TSN/automotive Ethernet will serve as a communication backbone, with more and more sensors and a more centralized computing platform attached.
- 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 will be implemented by monetizing data.
- An e2e data infrastructure will integrate vehicle platforms and platform businesses offering a multitude of B2B and B2C services.

Assessment of Standardization Gaps for Safe Automated Driving
ICT drives the evolution of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADASs). It enables higher levels of automated driving and ultimately fully autonomous vehicles (AVs). AVs of the future will allow broader mobility offers including end-to-end Mobility as a Service (MaaS). They will incorporate the latest ICT technologies like TSN/Ethernet, wireless communication, high definition maps, sensing, and various machine learning (ML) techniques to implement novel functions and features.
Nurturing the Era of End-to-End Mobility as a Service (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)]. Drivers will be operators and eventually passengers. Autonomous vehicles will open up many more currently unknown opportunities for end-to-end 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.
Autonomous Ground Vehicles and Intelligent Transportation Systems | IEEE Robotics and Automation Society
The goal of the TC IEEE-RAS committee on Autonomous Ground Vehicles and Intelligent Transportation Systems is to promote ITS and autonomous ground vehicles applications within the Robotics and Automation Society and catalyze the interaction between RAS and the Intelligent Transportation Systems Society.
LMSC, LAN/MAN Standards Committee (P802) (ieee802.org)
The IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee develops and maintains networking standards and recommended practices for local, metropolitan, and other area networks, using an open and accredited process, and advocates them on a global basis. The most widely used standards are for Ethernet, Bridging and Virtual Bridged LANs, Wireless LAN, Wireless PAN, Wireless MAN, Wireless Coexistence, Media Independent Handover Services, and Wireless RAN. An individual Working Group provides the focus for each area.
IEEE International Conference on Connected Vehicles and Expo (ICCVE)
These conferences serve as a premier platform for gathering together all relevant communities and domains. Experts, practitioners, and policy makers from around the world present the latest innovations and advances on connected vehicles, share their experiences and insights, forecast the latest trends and new opportunities, and discuss policy, economics, and social implications.
Nurturing The Era of Mobility as a Service (MaaS): Standards for Connected and Autonomous Transportation Workshop 2019
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) describes a shift from individually owned vehicles toward 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 ecosystem will need adequate standards to help enable the smooth integration of its constituents.
