This is an exciting, yet uncertain time for the entrenched stakeholders of the telematics industry.

(PRWEB) June 19, 2014

This addition to the Telematics Munich Conference & Exhibition is to be named ‘Cross Industry Relationships for the Connected Car’ and will serve as an example of how advancements in connectivity are improving the driving experience. These ‘intruding’ forces, combined with the efforts of existing, entrenched telematics stakeholders, reaffirm that the connected car is an area of superb value and potential. It is certain that while concepts such as intermodal mobility, autonomous vehicles and the application of the Internet of Things need more investigation, it will be a combination of these players (and new, currently unknown players) that will arrive at a solution in the not too distant future.

Andy Pym, one of the project directors working on Telematics Munich, commented, “This is an exciting, yet uncertain time for the entrenched stakeholders of the telematics industry. New players from other tech horizontals, as well as the titans of CE (Apple and Google), are all interested in leveraging the power of the connected car”. He continued, “The buzz-term of the early part of 2014 has been the ‘Internet of Things’. Therefore, we will take a granular look at how connected mobility will be affected by a growing connected world. This is something OEMs and telematics service providers are scrambling to work out at the moment”.

OEMs such as Daimler, BMW, Ford, Renault and Volkswagen will be joined at the Conference by telematics service providers such as HERE, Telenor, NNG, Telit and WirelessCar. With interest in the ‘Internet of Things’ growing quickly, it would be easy to get carried away with the hype, but the Conference will also donate an equal amount of attention to other industry megatrends. Tracks include, ‘Content, Apps & HMI’, ‘V2X & The Autonomous Car’, ‘Traffic & Advanced Navigation’, ‘Data, Analytics & Services’ and ‘Insurance and Fleet’.
