The Fully Networked Car Workshop - Geneva, 6 March 2013

The Future of Vehicles

The Eighth Fully Networked Car workshop, organized jointly by ITU, ISO, and the IEC, was held 6 March 2013, in association with Geneva's 83rd International Motor Show and Accessories.

The event attracted nearly 100 experts from around the world, and covered a series of interactive discussions revolving around the need for standardization for the networked vehicle, an examination of recent changes and challenges in technology and applications facing the auto industry, as well as some predictions for the future of the 'fully networked' car.

Richard Parry-Jones, former Vice President of Global Product Development and Chief Technical Officer at Ford Motor Company, served as the program moderator for the second consecutive year, and through the contribution and expertise provided by the panelists and the audience, the workshop re-affirmed many of the outcomes from the 2012 workshop, and offered some paths for standardization in the immediate future.
