This public consult is to seek the industry’s views on the proposed Intelligent Transport Systems (“ITS”) spectrum framework and standards in the 5.9 GHz band to be adopted by Singapore. 

The spectrum framework and standards consulted will be an enabler for the Land Transport Authority’s ("LTA") initiative in the upcoming national ITS developments and deployments, which include self-driving/autonomous vehicles. 

Among many other collaborations between IDA and LTA, IDA had invited local industry players and relevant authorities back in 2014 to form an ITS task force within Singapore’s Telecommunications Standards Advisory Committee (“TSAC”) to formulate local technical specifications for possible adoption by IDA, which will enable future smart transportation systems in support of Singapore’s smart nation vision. 

The chairman of the ITS task force under IDA TSAC, Dr Jaya Shankar, is also the co-editor for rapporteur group under the ITU Telecommunication Standardization Sector Study Group 16 (“ITU-T SG 16”) working on vehicle gateway platform for telecommunication/ITS services/applications.
