A meeting of the Collaboration on ITS Communication Standards (CITS <https://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/extcoop/cits/Pages/default.aspx>) will be co-located to the ITS-2018 forum. Both events will take place in Nanjing, China. To advance Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), the vehicle industry and the information and communication technology (ICT) industry continue to converge. Undoubtedly, this will provide new business opportunities and new scenarios to the benefit of the industry, as well as consumers and government agencies. Fresh approaches are expected to grow to develop innovative technologies to support a range of smart city solutions enabling more intelligent transport systems aiming at better road safety, reduced traffic congestion, and increased connectivity and mobility for urban dwellers. But how can these two very different industries find ways to collaborate to extend the benefits of connected vehicle innovation safely to everyone? In this ITS landscape, automated driving is moving towards commercialization. The innovations leading to driverless vehicles on the road are planned in parallel to innovations in the field of vehicles' energy. The international community is attentive to the environmental challenges and aim to reduce the emissions to mitigate the climate changes. The future ITS can only be imagined with autonomous and environmentally friendly vehicles, powered by alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies, also to increase the accessibility of personal mobility to the elderly and persons with disabilities.

The CITS meeting provides an opportunity to collaborate, exchange information and keep experts updated on ITS standardization. The representatives of various involved standards bodies are invited to submit to the CITS meeting a status report on ITS standardization ongoing in their respective organizations. These progress reports should be sent to Mr Stefano Polidori (ITU) at firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>. Feel free to distribute this information to relevant mailing lists.
