TISA Committee Meetings in Toulouse

December 17, 2018

On 4 and 5 December, TISA members gathered in Toulouse, France, for the last committee meetings of 2018. Hosted by Continental, this meeting provided a very important opportunity for the TISA community to meet, present new Use Case Proposals and discuss the priority for the work programme of the TISA Working Groups and Task Forces.

The assembly discussed matters regarding the provision of content and service, standardization and technical aspects and products, with TISA members identifying Road Closure handling (HERE), EMI, multipart message management (TomTom), and road works (Infoblu) as new use cases.

Starting with the Technical & Standardisation Committee, the presentation focused on the update on the status and number of the TMC location tables treated in 2018 and an overview of the TAWG activities and future actions for 2019. The presentation continued outlining the TFs activities to be launched, which are AD Clearance and Motorway Toll gates. The first day of committee meetings was also a good occasion to visit Continental’s Test Center.

The second day was dedicated to the “Information for automated driving” (I4AD) Workshop to discuss a very important topic and challenge for the automotive sector: autonomous driving.

The workshop addressed topics such as encoding structures, in-vehicle architectures, serialization protocols, and prioritized use cases, of which the precise road works warning is the most likely candidate for a first prototype implementation. Besides the technical topics, the work plan was refined and a demonstration of a first prototype at the ITS World Congress in Singapore discussed.
