Share Article

Telematics Update Telematics Update today published the 2014 agenda for Telematics Munich (10th-11th November, Hotel Dolce, Munich, Germany). This year, the Conference, lends a major focus to how the car is plugging into the connected world so that the ecosystem can develop auto mobility strategies towards 2020.

Telematics update:

The need to be connected is becoming fundamental as people are now part of a connected society.

As hype gathers around the Internet of Things, automakers and service providers alike are developing data management systems capable of dealing with the huge influx of data that comes with having everything connected. At the same time, opportunities are becoming apparent to create a new suite of personalised services that incorporates the home, personal health, asset management and retail, with the car as a crucial touch point for service providers. To discuss these new trends, innovative OEMs such as Qoros will line up on stage alongside Ford, Daimler, BMW and Volkswagen (to name a few), making OEM participation on stage is the best yet. Telematics Munich will unite these key telematics stakeholders with the CE companies defining the new phase of auto mobility such as Continental, Visteon and Denso.

The Car Plugs into the Connected World: Auto Mobility Strategies for 2020
Telematics Munich 2014 project director, Andrew Pym, stated: ‘This year, with 2020 on the horizon, we look to the automakers as they prepare their strategies for an evolution in mobility that is set to come. We know autonomous vehicles are no longer a science fiction fantasy. Safety features that derive from V2V and V2I communication are already on the roads and while the technology is being refined, legislation is being tackled to enable fully autonomous driving.’

Pym continued, ‘Connectivity is heart of this evolution and it is no longer a luxury for consumers. The need to be connected is becoming fundamental as people are now part of a connected society.’ Pym continued, ‘The latest iterations of infotainment systems will be directly compared to the reliability, connectivity and power of a consumer’s smartphone. Services which are plentiful and intelligent in the phone will be expected in the car’.

Telematics Munich, now in its 12th year will once again serve as the platform for new business relationships, ideas and cutting edge technology to develop that will drive this evolution.
