Connecting vehicles and infrastructure

Panel Session


22 May


11:00 to 12:30


Hall 2, Level +1

Connected vehicles communicate with infrastructure and other vehicles surrounding them to provide the driver with information for travel decisions. This session will focus on connectivity technologies that will transform road transport in the coming years, including vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) technology. It will examine issues for passenger as well as freight traffic, including technological requirements for connectivity, international standardisation, safety and enforcement implications. Possible funding sources for implementation will also be discussed.

Key facts:


Lead questions:

  • What are the technological and standardisation requirements for connected vehicles of the future? What is the role of international cooperation in this?
  • What are possible funding options for implementation of V2V and V2I connectivity in passenger and freight transport fleets?
  • How can related communication, data storage and sharing be accomplished in a controlled and secure manner?
  • What are the enforcement implications and how could the connectivity of the vehicles be used to enhance their operational performance as a part of the supply chain? What are the benefits to logistics?
