Andras Csepinszky, Director of Advanced Automotive Technology at NNG, was appointed to Co-Chairman of the Steering Board of SENSORIS in September 2020. SENSORIS was set up to collect and exchange information between the in-vehicle sensors and a dedicated cloud by taking advantage of the communication between the vehicles and the digital infrastructure. The sensor data transmitted from the vehicle to the external infrastructure will be available for use to a range of industry stakeholders, including map providers and insurance companies.
With his appointment, NNG’s Director of Advanced Automotive Technology is now responsible for leading a consortium of 40 industry players. The core objective of the international organisation—where the members are co-operating partners, rather than competitors—is to standardize a vehicle-based sensor data exchange format for the vehicle-to-cloud and cloud-to-cloud interfaces.
We are working on strengthening the position of SENSORIS as a standardization body of in-vehicle sensor data exchange in Europe as well as globally,said András Csepinszky.
In addition to being the first Hungarian to occupy such a high international position, Andras Csepinszky holds several leading positions: He was appointed to co-convener of the Big Data and Artificial Intelligence advisory group of the ISO TC204 in September 2019, and has represented NNG in the leadership of the Navigation Data Standard Association since 2017 and the Traveller Information Services Association since 2019.
As a kid in the early 80s, Andras Csepinszky started programming on a school-owned computer; and as he had no computer games of his own, he wrote some for himself. In 2006, he was working on vehicle telematics solutions at Connexis Kft. in Debrecen, Hungary and from 2009, he filled the position of project manager at ERTICO-ITS Europe in Brussels, Belgium for five and a half years.
