Standardization activities


This module provides a global and coherent view of C-ITS standardization activities in major standard development organizations (SDOs) or industry consortia, such as the IEEE, the ETSI, the ISO, the IETF and the SAE. This module also illustrates the similarities and differences between different approaches in Europe, the US, and the rest of the world. This module finally details the standardization process related to different C-ITS technologies or information.

Teaching and Learning Methods : Lectures, Case Studies and attendance to Standardization meetings

Course Policies : Attendance to case studies and standardization meetings is mandatory.
