17th ITS World Congress

Busan Exhibition and Convention Center (BEXCO), Busan, Korea

25-29 October 2010

Preliminary programme

Busan ITS World Congress 2010 will center on the theme "Ubiquitous Society with ITS - Low Carbon Green Growth". Transportation is a major contributor of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions from human activity, accounting for approximately 28 percent of total global emissions. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) is emerging to help meet the traffic safety, efficiency, and climate challenge.
Typically, the convergence between vehicle and information technology including vehicle-to-vehicle and communication systems is being realized as it evolves worldwide. This concept is designed to highlight innovative solutions to the convergence of existing information technology to promote a sustainable transportation network. It links human beings, vehicles, fuel, and overall transportation systems in order to provide a safe, convenient, and green mobility for the next generation.

Busan is Korea's second-largest city, which is a country with highly advanced IT technologies, which has been developing and implementing the concept of ITS since 1991.

The Congress is an excellent opportunity for all transport professionals to learn, share knowledge and gain perspective on the state of the industry and emerging technology trends, during interactive sessions and tailor-made meetings.


Participation of CVIS

  • Special Session 01 A Pan European Architecture for Cooperative Mobility: Enabling the Future Deployment
    Oct. 26 (Tue), 16:00-17:30

    The development of the harmonised architecture has been started by COMeSafety in cooperation with the CVIS, SAFESPOT and COOPERS European projects. The PRE-DRIVE C2X project has developed its building blocks following the Common European Architecture document drafted by COMeSafety. Additionally these projects performed a screening of stakeholders’ interest in new V2X-based business cases. This involved new V2X communication use cases such as point of interest information, media download, insurance and financial services, parking assistance, and fleet management, as well as “Pay as You Drive” and “Improved Claims Management” functions. In particular the PREDRIVE C2X European project consolidated and extended the harmonised European ITS communication architecture for cooperative systems. A core outcome is the definition of a strategy to use and propagate the architecture towards testing, functional validation and trials on the effectiveness of the system as a whole and of its applications. The
    architectural concepts adopted have been further harmonised in ETSI TC ITS for standardisation purposes. This session will provide an outlook on the most recent outcomes on the V2X technology, standards and related services.

  • Special Session 28 V2X Cooperative System
    Oct. 27 (Wed), 16:00-17:30

    Recently, V2X technologies are developing in the world. Typical projects are CVIS, IntelliDrive, SmartWay, and VMC. V2X communications are commonly accepted an important milestone to improve the road safety. The highest goal of V2X technologies is to reduce traffic fatalities and injuries through direct information exchange between the vehicles-vehicles and between the vehicles-infrastructure as well finally preventing the traffic accidents using improved knowledge of the driver regarding environment. Basically, V2V and V2I communication technology should be considered in the ITS infrastructure where includes traffic signals, enforcement camera and toll collection equipment, etc. Additionally, V2X can contain V2Palm or V2Pedestrian services using effective radio communications. Then possible communication media can deliver the safety messages as well as infotainment data. This session will present some possible deployment of the cooperative V2X systems.
    Moderator: Hyun Seo Oh, Team Manager, Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute, Republic of Korea

  • Special Session 33 Cooperative safety & mobility developments in Europe
    Oct. 27 (Wed), 16:00-17:30

    This session will present the final results of the first phase of European research and development for cooperative systems as carried out by in three large-scale "integrated projects", CVIS, SAFESPOT and COOPERS. These projects have developed the core technologies needed to ensure reliable communication amongst vehicles and between vehicles and both roadside infrastructure and back-office systems. They have also developed and validated a wide range of applications and services, ranging from safety-critical driver warnings to interactive vehicle-traffic system information exchange and priority negotiation, and to ubiquitous vehicle, traffic and road information services for road and transport operators and vehicle users. Targeted benefits include greater driver safety, reduced traffic congestion and energy use and lower vehicle, transport system and logistics operating costs

    This session will present the results of validation of cooperative system technologies, applications and real-life operations, comprising the outcome of numerous field trials carried out by the three projects at over 20 sites across Europe: 

    - V2V and V2I communication system performance;

    - functional validation of cooperative safety, efficiency and mobility applications;

    - test site experiences of implementation in vehicles and roadside infrastructure;

    - evidence of wider impacts, costs and benefits of cooperative applications and services.
    Moderator: EC representative
    Speakers: CVIS, SAFESPOT and COOPERS Coordinators

  • Special Session 49 Cooperative Systems: Will Field Operational Tests Show Us the Deployment Path?
    Oct. 28 (Thu), 16:00-17:30
    During the last decade, cooperative systems have been held up as one solution to the problems faced by road operators and car manufacturers. Around the world, Field Operational Tests for Cooperative Systems have taken place and more are being planned to assess the improvements that these systems can bring in the efficiency of the transport system, in the safety of all road users and in making individual mobility more comfortable. In Europe, before any decision for full-scale deployment can be made, large-scale test programmes are planned aiming at a comprehensive assessment of the efficiency, quality, robustness and user-friendliness of close-to market systems. Daimler and ERTICO - ITS Europe will jointly present the current plans in Europe. US DOT and NHTSA will give a critical commentary on the IntelliDrive program and the US’s overall evaluation and research framework. Finally, the Japanese Cabinet Secretariat will give an overview of the country’s deployment activities.

  • Special Session 60 Why the ITS Businesses Need to Care about IPv6 ?
    Oct. 29 (Fri), 09:00-10:30

    There is a consensus from ISO (CALM), ETSI, COMeSafety and Car-to-Car Communication Consortium that vehicular Internet-based communications will rely on IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) and not IPv4, the version of the Internet Protocol currently most widely deployed, but which is facing address depletion in the very short term and does not meet ITS communication architecture requirements. However, the impact on the ITS sector of IPv6 deployment is hardly heard off by most ITS stakeholders. There is little know-how and more importantly little awareness although IPv6 is already in the product line of major ICT vendors and deployed in underlining backbone networks. ITS stakeholders must be informed about the urgent need to consider IPv6 in their products, taking as an important input the limitation of IPv4 and its address space depletion, the success of ITS projects developing around IPv6 (CVIS, GeoNet), and the progress of ITS standardisation activities related to IPv6.
    Moderator:  Thierry Ernst, Chair IPv6 Task Force France, INRIA
    Invited Speakers: Knut Evensen, ISO CALM Architect, QFree ASA; Zeljko Jeftic, Project Manager, ERTICO - ITS Europe; Andras Festag / Roberto Baldessari, Chair ETSI TC ITS Networking Working Group/NEC Europe; Gérard Ségarra, Car-to-Car Communication Consortium, Renault
