Novi, MI (PRWEB) April 29, 2007
Telematics may be a geeky word that you will never hear in the latest round of TV ads by the major auto makers. It may not ever trip off the consumer tongue in the same way that ‘MP3’ and ‘Bluetooth’ do. And it’s pretty unlikely that the question ‘so what telematics does it have?’ will ever become a commonly heard query in vehicle showrooms across America.
Yet telematics is a crucial part of the future of driving and promises to change the automotive industry – and people’s lives – forever.
But despite its proven successes in both the business and private vehicle sectors, the potential for telematics remains vastly greater than the progress to date.
Here is a taste of the things to come that telematics will enable:
- Cars that don’t crash – because they are in constant communication with the road infrastructure and all other on-road vehicles
- Cars that rarely if ever break down – because they warn you of a problem well in advance and let your mechanic know you need them
- Cars that have full blown streaming, hi-def TV and massive multiplayer online video games for the kids in the back
- Cars that sync seamless with all your consumer electronics – iPods, cellphones, PC tablets, PDAs, etc.
- Cars that you don’t even have to drive yourself anymore, if you don’t want to, because it will actually be safer to let them drive themselves!
While all this will be technically possible in the very near future, the challenge is getting these services to market and creating consumer awareness of the possibilities.
On May 22nd and 23rd, the Telematics Detroit conference will brings together the telematics industry’s top brains to discuss how to move this industry forward and how to bring about this visionary future of driving.
If you want to find out more about this market, quiz the leading players on the latest developments and meet all the biggest companies in one place then this is the one event you should check out.
The exhibition is free to all. The main conference costs $1,795 for a gold ticket, but the doors are open to all legitimate journalists and press, there are however only a limited number of complimentary spaces and all press are invited to request a free pass as soon as possible
