TISA is organising a Special Interest Session titled “TPEG based traffic services and cooperative ITS: a winning team” (SIS14) on Wednesday 18 June during the ITS European Congress (16-19 June, Helsinki).


With the advent vehicle-to-vehicle or vehicle-to-roadside communication, a new dimension is added to the established traffic information services based on RDS-TMC or TPEG. While addressing somewhat different driver needs, geographic coverage areas and time horizons, both approaches have much in common and complement each other nicely when combined properly.


This special session will address several technical and business related topics and stimulate a discussion of how to best use the synergies between both approaches for the benefit of the driver. Speakers at the SIS will be Matthias Unbehaun (TISA), Torsten Geissler (BASt), Ralf-Peter Schäfer (TomTom), Frank Försterling (Continental Automotive GmbH), Fabio Pressi (Infoblu), Andrew Nash (Mediamobile – V-Traffic), and Olaf Meng (Garmin).
