Rome, Italy 26-27 September 2018


The aim of the workshop is to share views and examine the regulatory, technical and economic issues in IOT/M2M, focusing in particular on one of the most promising sectors in IOT/M2M: the automotive sector. This application is ripe with challenges for the regulators. It is a field where safety concerns, data-intensive processing, and technological innovation really push the boundaries of traditional electronic communications regulators and fellows’ regulators such as transport authorities.  In comparison with other IoT applications – smart metering for one – autonomous driving has a much wider range of issues, which amongst other thing will require significant cooperation between different regulatory bodies.

The workshop has been prepared considering the questionnaire distributed on the different aspects of the future national and international challenges, being aware that we are almost facing a paradigm shift in our ordinary life, with a lot of not easy issues to be solved in order to guarantee a level playing field for the industries and a fair protection of the consumers.
