ARLINGTON, Va.-April 17, 2013: Today, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) announced it will hold a Discovery Group meeting to explore the need for consumer electronics (CE) industry standards related to intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and broadband access in vehicles. The ITS Discovery Group meeting will be held Wednesday, May 22, 2013, at the JW Marriott Cherry Creek in Denver.

“Two-way communications among vehicles, between vehicles and the transportation infrastructure, and between vehicles and the telecommunications infrastructure are growing rapidly and will continue to grow for years to come”

The event will include speakers from the federal government and the CE industry. The presentations will be followed by an open discussion to determine what CEA should do to further the advancement of ITS systems and broadband access in vehicles.

"Two-way communications among vehicles, between vehicles and the transportation infrastructure, and between vehicles and the telecommunications infrastructure are growing rapidly and will continue to grow for years to come," said James Tranchina, vice president, engineering, Voxx International, and co-chair of CEA's Portable, Handheld and In-Vehicle Electronics Committee. "I look forward to a very productive discussion in Denver next month."

The meeting of the ITS Discovery Group, which will be chaired by Tranchina, will be one part of the week-long CEA Technology & Standards Forum. Anyone with an interest in the subject is encouraged to attend. To register for the event visit: CE.org/Events-and-Awards/Events/2013/Tech-Standards-Spring-Forum.
