The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) will be organizing the 16th edition of the Symposium on the Future Networked Car (FNC-2021). Due to the ongoing pandemic and related cancellation of the Geneva International Motor Show, this edition of the Symposium will be organized as a fully virtual event, over a span of four days from 22-25 March 2021, over a period of three-hours, each day from 13h00 to 16h00 CET, as follows:
Since 2005, the Symposium on the Future Networked Car
has brought together representatives of the automotive, information and communications technology industries, along with government leaders and regulators, to discuss the status and future of vehicle communications and automated driving from both technical and regulatory viewpoints.
FNC 2021 panelists will examine the latest advances in the areas of vehicle connectivity, cybersecurity, applications of artificial intelligence (AI), and the global regulatory framework that will support deployment of highly automated mobility solutions. The Symposium will delve into the relationships between vehicle communications and automated/autonomous driving by analyzing the crucial role of regulatory frameworks to enable deployment of vehicles with highly automated driving products with extensive operational design domains (ODDs). Collaboration among the various standards bodies as well as defining specific areas where AI will be most useful are essential components to realize the future mobility success; these topics will be in focus during the panel discussions.
