It can be imagined that a device is needed to identify the user, the mobility request (e.g. destination), additional services requested by the user, payment and privacy issues, etc. Almost all these functionalities could be provided by mobile phone. Which functionalities will be required? Will they be significantly different from today’s applications? Security, privacy and application aspects. Which role will Mobile Apps play inside a connected vehicle? Will they replace in-car navigation systems?
F2Transportation big data: opportunities and challenges. Applications? Who will benefit most?

V2X communication will generate a huge amount of data due to the highly repetitive character of messages exchanged specifically for V2V communication. Does it really make sense to collect, store and process all these data to enrich content? For which purpose will they be required? Which services will be supported by this data? Will they interfere with privacy issues of the car users? Is there a new role for infrastructure operators for compilation of data? Will new service providers penetrate the market?

Which propulsion system will be most appropriate for connected vehicles? Technology screen and vehicle concepts. Which technology will take the lead? Will there be an impact to extend the range of the electric vehicle by more economic driving? Can we achieve a reduction in CO2 emissions? Will we expect new vehicle concepts (light weight structures)?

The challenge for safer and more efficient mobility for all travelers are tackled from vehicles and cities alike. Both car manufactures and their suppliers as well as municipalities and their respective suppliers of intelligent road infrastructures will act in their quest for Smart Cities. While communication technologies are utilized for many years, recent activities concentrated on proper interoperability and joining forces to foster participation and collaboration between all stakeholders. What are the current findings and the next steps for a fast deployment?

Defining cooperative infrastructure in the current phase of pre-series development exposes product designers towards interesting challenges. While technology solutions somehow find their way, the spectrum of addressed benefits as requested by stakeholders is heterogeneous. Matching the solutions with the actual needs is an important aspect for any practitioner developing as well as deploying and operating cooperative infrastructure solutions. This summit shall highlight the range of positions as held by different stakeholders and discuss the potential roles that individual actors can and should play in deployment and operations. Is it possible to reach a consensus, which promises the development of solutions that are welcome and accepted by drivers, implemented and paid by the different road operators as well as service providers? Is it possible to paint a roadmap that promises real progress in this innovative field – a roadmap that describes the roles of current and future stakeholders as well as technological building blocks?

Role of the Infrastructure Operator in a connected / automated traffic environment on local, regional, national, global level. Are network operators only smart data collectors and distributing this information to mobile users and drivers is not part of their duties and future task´s or do infrastructure operators have the view that pre- and on-Trip information needs to cover different channels to communicate with travelers and that consistency and correctness of this information has to be monitored and validated regularly? Is this also the case for the presentation of traffic management information on end user devices in cars or on phones? Is there a cooperation model available how private and public organizations collaborate to achieve this? Legislative Frame work – how to adapt the Vienna Convention

US DoT has recently announced their strategy for the implementation of 5.9GHz into the transport system. This will push developments and applications to exchange data in the V2X environment. But there are also other technologies on the screen to support wireless data exchange V2X. Will they have a significant impact to change processes and operation of the transportation industry? On which areas will they appear, which processes will be impacted?

Today the number of fatalities in transportation count to around 800,000 every year growing to possibly 1.2 million by 2025 globally. In 2013, UN-ECE has launched a ‘Decade of Action’ to countermeasure this unacceptable trend in road transportation.
The upcoming implementation of V2X communication together with the developments of Advanced Driver Assistant Systems (ADAS) in next generation vehicles finally will enable automatic driving with the potential to avoid almost 100% of fatalities as well as any other crashes between vehicles, vehicles and vulnerable persons or with fixed infrastructure installations. This will save hundreds of billions USD. At this very moment, all technology developments are pushed by automotive industry as a matter of customer relationship strategy and necessary competition between automotive industry companies.
Isn’t safety also the core responsibility of governments of all states? Why do they not push mandatory safety functionality as a matter of certification of vehicles? The session shall discuss role of vehicle manufacturer versus mandatory safety functions defined by public bodies to ensure zero fatalities and avoiding almost all accidents as soon as possible in a coordinated way. What are the drivers for this development? Is there a chicken and egg problem?
Who has to start with what and when? Public bodies? Private organizations? Automotive industries? Insurance companies? Car users? Will there be a balanced business case for all groups involved?
The session will discuss these topics with respect to the technical aspect, the financial aspect, the emotional aspect (driver), the legal aspect (mandatory equipment), the organizational aspect (traffic management) and the operational aspect with respect to the transition phase from ‘zero’ penetration rate to 100%.
