I think we have reached a tipping point
Germany (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Telematics Update: Almost 5,000 people die every year from traffic accidents in Germany alone. Vehicle 2 Vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) technologies are safety systems that will help reduce these numbers. Research has found that V2V, V2I and more advanced versions of the systems can take control of a car to prevent an accident by applying brakes when the driver reacts too slowly to a warning. The development of these next gen ITS systems is growing fast organically with support from the European government, automotive manufacturers, Tier 1, Road operators and other investing stakeholders.
Telematics Update’s V2X for Safety and Mobility Europe 2013 Conference will bring together these key players in the value chain to gain insights into different strategies that are breaking ground in the EU ITS landscape.
"Whilst V2X is not new to the European market, I think we have reached a tipping point, and with imminent tech developments, and the number of organisations involved to grab a share of this revolutionary market opportunity, I think there will be a lot to look out for.” – Shreya Ganapathy, Project Director, Telematics Update.
These systems will not only offer safer driving experiences, but improve traffic management, mobility and have environmental benefits. Within Europe, the transport sector has a high level of CO2 emissions and these systems will be configured to target avoidable fuel consumption with the potential to achieve a cleaner and more energy-efficient mobility of goods and people
After months of independent research into the V2X market in Europe, Telematics Update uncovered the following topics for in- depth discussion at the conference. The expert speaker line-up including BMW, ETSI, Renault, Denso, Helmond FOT amongst others will discuss:
- Optimise V2I Architecture to Improve Traffic Management
- Safety - The Stimulus for V2X Offerings
- Getting Started: Integrating Vehicles and Road Side Units
- Current ADAS Systems Converging with V2X
- Commercial Vehicles First Steps Towards V2X Adoption
- Bringing Together V2I and V2V and their Differing Business Cases
…and many more sessions on topics such as data, security, smartphone integration, and autonomous driving, with exclusive insights from various field tests.
150+ executives (including OEMs, Tier 1s, chipset manufacturers, road authorities and government amongst other key players) are set to attend the conference and the structured networking sessions to secure crucial partnerships.
