Workshop on Spectrum Requirements for Road Safety
Brussels, Belgium – The workshop on “Spectrum Requirements for Road Safety” took place 28 February 2006 in Brussels. The workshop was proposed by the Radio Spectrum Committee (RSC) and organised by the European Commission. The RSC assists the Commission in the development and adoption of technical implementing measures aimed at ensuring harmonised conditions for the availability and efficient use of radio spectrum.
The workshop participants discussed the spectrum requirements of future safety-critical applications in the context of Co-operative Systems, the status of spectrum harmonisation and standardisation activities in Europe and the rest of the world, as well as the next steps with regards to spectrum requirement issues.
Mrs Rosalie Zobel from the European Commission chaired the meeting, which saw representatives from all major stakeholders, such as the RSC, the CEPT (European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations), ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute), the eSafety Forum, the industry and other research projects.
The work on spectrum requirements will continue with several meetings focussing on communication issues in 2006: the eSafety Forum Communication Working Group on 7 April 2006, the Architecture Workshop on Co-operative Systems in Brussels in July 2006, the 2nd International Workshop on Communications organised by COMeSafety in London on 13 October 2006, and the eSafety Forum Plenary in Brussels in November 2006.
