We are pleased to inform you about the current status and results of the ITU
Focus Group on Vehicular Multimedia (FG-VM), established by the ITU-T Study
Group 16 in 2018.

The FG-VM had already finalized the first technical report on “Use Cases and
Requirements for Vehicular Multimedia” [Flipbook]. This technical report was
further improved by the parent ITU T Study Group 16, who has approved a new
ITU-T Recommendation "Use cases and requirements for the vehicular multimedia
networks" Rec.ITU-T F.749.3.

In addition, at the recent April 2021 meeting, the FG-VM has finalized its
second Technical Report on “Architecture of Vehicle Multimedia Systems”
[FGVM-O-058]. This second deliverable was also submitted for consideration of
the parent ITU T Study Group 16, which plans to review and endorse it as ITU-T
Recommendation similarly to the first deliverable. The new FG-VM deliverable is
attached to this liaison.

The FG-VM started working on a third deliverable which will cover Vehicular
Multimedia Implementation aspects, under the WG3 leadership. We will keep you
informed and would welcome joint participation and collaboration with your
group as well as participation from individual experts. Next FG-VM plenary
meeting will take place on 29-30 June 2021. A couple of interim meetings of WG3
are planned. See more information on:
