On June 5, the National
Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) will moderate a panel
of Applied Information, Inc. President Bryan Mulligan, Audi Director of
Government Affairs Brad Stertz, and Qualcomm Senior Director of
Engineering Vincent Park at the 2019 Intelligent Transportation Society
of America (ITSA) Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. The speakers will
discuss the central role that Standards play in the connected and
increasingly automated vehicle landscape.
“New connected vehicle technology, linking cars to one another,
pedestrians and the infrastructure, will play a crucial role in reducing
the tragic injuries and loss of life that occur needlessly on our
roadways,” said Bryan Mulligan, President of Applied Information, Inc.
“The NEMA ability to develop Standards will ensure seamless
connectivity, privacy, and security so that roadway operators and the
traveling public can deploy and use this technology with confidence.”
“NEMA supports the development of Standards that enable connectivity,
define and simplify interoperability, and safeguard privacy and
cybersecurity in vehicles, traffic signals, and other electronic roadway
assets,” says NEMA President and CEO Kevin J. Cosgriff. “Now more than
ever before, communication between vehicles and infrastructure will be
at the heart of our moving to a safer and more efficient transportation
In April, the NEMA Transportation Management Systems Section commissioned
a Connected Vehicle Infrastructure Technical Committee to develop a
harmonized technical specification for roadside connected vehicle
devices. To learn more about activities in the NEMA Transportation
The ITSA panel is a neutral forum in which industry leaders within the
transportation sector exchange information about deployments and
Standards in a broader landscape.
The panel will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in
room 204 A at 12:30 pm EDT.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) represents
