TISA General Assembly elects new President and Treasurer

July 23, 2020

TISA Members reunited virtually on 23 June for the association’s General Assembly. Highlights of the meeting were the re-election of Thomas Kusche-Knežević (WDR) as President of TISA and of Andreas Goršak (JVCKENWOOD) as treasurer, who will both serve for the upcoming two years.

The General Assembly also served as occasion for Members to go through important matters, starting with the Executive Office report, the summary of activities and achievements, the Committees, Working Groups and Task Forces, and additional operational aspects. In addition, the meeting confirmed TISA’s liaison with external stakeholders, such as the RDS Forum, WorlDAB, EU-EIP, DATEX II, OADF, NDS, SENSORIS, ADASIS, ERTICO and the CCAM Platform, and provided an overview of 2020 events, namely the postponement of the ITS European and World Congresses and the status of TISA’s related papers and presentations, which remain accepted for both events.

TISA’s General Assembly and Committee Meetings were also a valuable occasion for Members to learn from external stakeholders. Two keynote presentations were given, one by Hendrik Kramer, Co-Founder and CEO of PYLOT GmbH, and one by Kristian Jaldemark, Head of Development at Carmenta.

PYLOT is a Munich-based software company that focuses on the remote control of autonomous vehicles (teleoperation), providing also mission critical products and services for defence, aviation, traffic, security and public safety industries. Mr. Kramer presented a variety of use cases on these areas, which are available for TISA Members at this link.

Carmenta is a Swedish company which works in a wide range of industries: automotive, defence and security, traffic management, public safety and maritime. Thanks to many common areas of research and interest with Carmenta, TISA Members we able to learn more from the company’s use cases on public safety, traffic watch, Connected and Automated Driving, Autonomous Driving Traffic Control, Emergency Vehicle Awareness and more. Carmenta’s presentation is available for TISA Members here.

The next committee meeting will be held on 15 September in online format.
