Standardization activities

T Technical Teaching


  • Over the past years, wireless communication for ITS went over important standardization efforts. It remains yet very hard to gather a global vision of the different aspects and roles, as standardization is conducted as a function of various countries and on different protocol stacks (IETF for IPv6, IUT for the frequencies, IEEE for the 802.11p and WAVE, ETSI/ISO for the higher protocol stacks). The knowledge of available protocols and standards as well as their inter-relations in ITS is important to design innovative ITS applications and to to develop the required communication system.
  • The objective of this course is to provide a global and coherent view of ITS standardization activities in major standardization institutions or industry consortia, such as the IEEE, the ETSI, the ISO, the IETF and the SAE. The course will also illustrate the similarities and differences between different approaches in Europe, the US, and the rest of the world.
