The FISITA Industry Committee, consisting of senior representatives from the FISITA Corporate Membership, have identified key technology areas (see right for some of these areas) in which knowledge sharing and discussion can help highlight and potentially accelerate the adoption of new solutions by the mainstream automotive industry.
FISITA is creating dedicated Technology Clusters around each of these areas that determine their own scope, meeting cadence and target deliverables. Last year, the Mapping Technology Cluster was created in Japan, and the group have been working together, under the leadership of Toyota and Zenrin to produce this technical knowledge share, for the benefit of the international connected community of FISITA.
