The introduction of connected cars in our society and their development is becoming increasingly dynamic. ITS can be more advanced with connected cars. 5G networks, IoT and AI will accelerate new smart services regarding road and traffic management with connected cars and ITS.

The key component of these new services is data, what kind of data can we use and how can we make use of it based on social challenges to be solved? How can we create an innovative environment to use this data?
