Car to Car Forum - Report Summary
Paris 23-24 November 2010
The fourth Car 2 Car Forum was held in Paris 23-24.11.2010. There were altogether some 165 participants in this forum, mainly representing the key car industry partners (such as Renault, DaimlerChrysler, Audi AG, BMW Group and Volkswagen AG), but also other partners (OEM members, assisting members, developer members and basic members). The Car 2 Car Forum consisted of general scientific sessions, workshop sessions and poster exhibition, in which the Finnish Meteorological Institute (Timo Sukuvaara) had own prepared a poster summarizing the objectives, findings and expected impacts of the WiSafeCar project. In addition Timo Sukuvaara there were two other Finnish representatives, Pekka Eloranta, the co-ordinator of the WiSafeCar project and Juhani Jääskeläinen from European Commission (the Head of Unit ICT for Transport DG Information Society and Media). From WiSafeCar aldo Michel Krim from Ubistream participated the Forum on 24.11.
CAR 2 CAR Forum was the fourth one arranged. FMI (Timo Sukuvaara) has attended to each one of them. It is clear that to see that the work is ongoing, and step by step we are approaching the ultimate goal of standardized, embedded car-to-car communication systems compatible with each other regardless of the vehicle manufacturer. The standardization work has now clear time table (documentation ready until July 2012) and it seems to be possible to also follow this time table. The poster of WiSafeCar project brought a lot of visibility to the project and generated many interesting contacts for the future. Participation to Car 2 Car Forum was ultimately beneficial for WiSafeCar. The WiSafeCar project seems to be in the good position to contribute when C2C Consortium work ultimately leads to emerging standardized vehicle systems.
