IEEE, the world's largest professional organization advancing technology for humanity, today announced that the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) is collaborating with DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung e. V.), the German Institute for Standardization, and SAE International, the global body of engineers and technical professionals developing volunteer consensus standards for passenger cars, in organizing a new event to explore how standards are driving innovation in electric vehicles (EV) and charging infrastructure globally, lessons learned from the field of “electromobility” standards implementation and gaps where standards are needed to propel the EV market to its next stage of growth. The International eMobility Standards Symposium is scheduled to take place 18 February 2013 at the Hilton Anaheim (Calif.)
“The vehicle electrification will be successfully implemented only if consumer experience is repeatedly positive,” said Jack Pokrzywa, director of global ground vehicle standards with SAE International. “Standards developed collaboratively across various sectors and regions will assist in creating that type of experience and will lay foundation for more advanced solutions of the future. A conference organized by three prominent standards-development organizations (SDOs) such as DIN, IEEE and SAE clearly enables and promotes that collaboration.”
Rüdiger Marquardt, vice director, DIN, added: “The promise of electromobility is tremendous in terms of reducing society’s dependency on fossil fuels and providing low-emission mobility in urban environments and beyond. The success of eMobility depends largely on international cross-sectoral and cross-border coordination in standards development. Uniform standards and specifications—for charging stations, billing systems, etc.—are needed so that EVs can be produced, sold and used across borders. Global standards will help ensure vehicle safety and data protection.”
All three organizations—SAE International, DIN and the IEEE-SA—already have made significant contributions in standards in areas such as EVs, vehicle-to-grid (V2G) communications, power and the smart grid.
SAE International (http://ev.sae.org/) develops standards to provide safer processes and practices for effective implementation of hybrid/electric vehicles. Over 25 SAE International Ground Vehicle electrification committees with 780 members have developed 64 standards and are currently focusing on continue development of standards in critical areas such as battery safety and vehicle-to-grid interoperability. As a leading SDO in the US National Roadmap for Smart Grid and "Interoperability Standards to Support Plug-In Electric Vehicles,” SAE International works very closely with all domestic, but also international stakeholders, to help enable safe, reliable and effective global implementation of vehicle electrification technology based on universal and agreed standards.
DIN and its electromobility office, established in 2009 (http://www.e-mobility.din.de), serves as a central and neutral contact point for all aspects of electromobility standardization, with the aim of introducing technical standardization within the international context at an early stage and, thus, sustainably strengthening the German economy. At present, with its committees for automotive and electrotechnical standardization, DIN contributes actively to more than 30 ISO and IEC standardization projects with direct focus on EVs. Beyond, DIN is strongly engaged in the continuous enhancement of international collaboration between all relevant organizations.
A leading global developer of smart grid standards, IEEE has more than 100 standards and standards in development spanning the whole smart grid spectrum, including many that are specifically related to electromobility. For example, IEEE P2030.1™ “Guide for Electric-Sourced Transportation Infrastructure” is being developed to establish a knowledge base addressing terminology, methods, equipment and planning requirements for road-based personal and mass transportation and its impacts on commercial and industrial systems such as for generation, transmission and distribution systems of electrical power.
“Consolidation around a global framework of broadly adopted standards would infuse eMobility with new momentum for market growth and technological innovation,” said Edward Rashba, director, new business ventures, with the IEEE-SA. “Our collaboration with DIN and SAE International in organizing the International eMobility Standards Symposium is intended to share intelligence on the existing landscape of standards and frame consensus around future needs.”
The target audience for the International eMobility Standards Symposium spans original equipment manufacturer (OEM) design engineers; battery manufacturers; tier and component suppliers; product-design engineers for light-, medium- and heavy-duty vehicles; infrastructure suppliers (such as for charging stations); researchers; governments; utilities, and other SDOs.

The International eMobility Standards Symposium will take place the day before the SAE 2013 Hybrid & Electric Vehicle Technologies Symposium (http://www.sae.org/events/hybridev/), also at the Hilton Anaheim and now in its 10th year.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
