ICT 2008

Inventing the Future: ICT technologies for the future

Centre de Congrès, Lyon, France

25-27 November 2008


The ICT 2008 event will host leading visionaries from academia and industry and will address topics as diverse as Europe's role in shaping the future internet, ICT's contribution to advancing the sustainability agenda and alternative research paths for future ICT components and systems.


The event's "Inventing the Future" theme will comprehensively cover major research trends in information and communication technologies (ICT). The 2009-2010 Work Programme for ICT research in the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) will be presented in detail. Other sources of EU research funding for ICT will also be examined, including the new Joint Technology Initiatives (JTIs) and the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP). These initiatives together represent over €2 billion in EU support for ICT research over the next two years.


Participation of CVIS

  1. CVIS demonstration ()

    CVIS presented its reference platform at stand K 01 in the ICT ON THE MOVE village.
    A cross-demonstration was organised between the Anemone and CVIS stands

    Prototype HMI of the Enhanced Driver Awareness application. Safety messages are displayed to the driver ranked by their priority, like ghost driver warning (high priority on the left panel) and roadwork warning (lower priority on the right)

    PDA showing warning messages along the driver’s route (left). The On-board infrared transceiver (right) is one of the wireless communication interfaces of a CVIS networked car.
    Outside the congress centre (Parvis E), a Volvo truck was connected to both stands and receiving the same traffic warning messages:


  2. "The networked car: boosting early IPv6 adoption" session
    Salle Bellecour 3, 26/11/2008 (16:00-17:30)
    Next generation of vehicles will be networked in order to exchange safety, non-safety and infotainment information with other vehicles, the roadside and peers in the Internet. Internet-based communications will rely on IPv6, the new version of the Internet Protocol, which is already in the product line of major vendors (networking devices and operating systems) and deployed in backbones (GEANT, OpenTransit,...).
    IPv6 is already taking momentum in the automobile sector as could it be witnessed by the CVIS and GeoNet European projects and standardization activities by ISO TC204 WG16 (CALM architecture), ETSI, and the Car-to-Car Communication Consortium (C2C-CC).
    Following the European Commission's IPv6 action plan issued in May 2008, the objective of the session is to discuss how IPv6 know-how could be best developed in Europe.
