V2X Global Future Workforce Program
Monday 30 October | 9:00-16:00 | Room 516D
Seemingly overnight, intelligent transportation systems (ITS) came into the consciousness of an increasingly global array of industry and government leaders. From what seemed futuristic a few years ago to today’s landscape of a burgeoning industry, the ITS movement is here to stay, and we need a workforce to support it.
The Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS America) has partnered with Mobile Comply to present the V2X Global Future Workforce Program at ITS World Congress 2017. The program will bring together high-school students on a global scale to participate in cutting-edge, vehicle-cyber and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure workshops supported by the SAE Cyber Truck Challenge and Square One Education Network.
The two-part immersive program is designed to build an understanding and appreciation for transportation systems using sensors, coding and vehicle hacking technology. The sessions will be open to companies from around the world, giving students and the companies a chance to interact and discuss plans — i.e. education, internships, employment — for the future.
By putting students at the forefront of ITS together with industry, we are investing in the workforce that will make create the next generation of our mobile reality.
Mobile Comply has designed this year’s program to include two tracks to promote cross disciplinary training:
Track One: Students will showcase the design and implementation of programs in collaboration with the SAE Cyber Truck Challenge. This morning work session will be based on projects they have completed securing vehicles in the form of heavy trucks by using best processes in cyber security and risk assessment.
Track Two: Students will showcase projects they have completed in V2I. Participants will be introduced to the Arduino and Raspberry Pi-based 3D printed mobile platforms plus sensors and programming.
The sessions will be live and instructor-led with supporting online and print materials. They will be held in concurrent with ITS World Congress 2017 at the Palais des congrès de Montréal. Transportation and housing accommodations will be provided for out-of-town participants. The workshop will begin promptly at 9:00 AM and conclude at 16:00 PM. Opportunities for industry professionals to interact with the students will be available during between 10:30-11:30 AM and 14:30-15:30 PM.
