Virtual ITS European Congress

9-10 November

Resilient, innovative, sustainable: now more than ever, this is the future of mobility.

Policy makers and executives from the industry will debate about the main themes of the Virtual ITS Congress 2020 during the High Level Sessions, while experts developing and deploying ITS will continue the discussion in-depth during the Focus Sessions.

The Virtual ITS European Congress will present an exciting programme over two days, focused on smart mobility.

Our Involvement

Our Head of Communication Systems Engineering, Ashweeni, will be chairing the ‘Delivering Resilience and reach with 5G and Satellite Communication‘ panel.

Deploying resilient ITS services that work seamlessly irrespective of the users location – whether rural or urban – poses an interesting challenge for ITS connectivity. With 5G and new satellite constellations in the near future, along with the convergence of terrestrial and satellite technology, the provisioning of seamless connectivity on the move – in urban, rural and wilderness – will become a reality and pave the way for resilient ITS services. 5G has the ambition to enable harmonious integration of heterogeneous networks whether terrestrial and satellite.

It is forecasted that by 2025 around 27.2% of automotive use cases will use satellite connectivity. Through its global reach, satellite communication plays a key role in creating a resilient and affordable connectivity fabric for both infrastructure and vehicles. Such connectivity is crucial for the deployment of essential ITS services such as emergency calls, fleet management, remote diagnostics and road tolling.
