In the first ever on-stage meeting of VP level executives, light will be shone of the traditionally conservative boardrooms of automakers and Tier 1s and how they view connected auto mobility and the entrance of tech players into the vehicle. Panelists include Dr. Thomas M. Müller, Vice President of the Electronics & E-Propulsion Department at Volvo and Ralf Lenninger, Senior Vice President of the Interior Strategy & Innovation Division at Continental.

In addition to this, Europe’s top OEMs will give stand-alone keynote presentations that will reveal their strategies behind the future of the connected car (Daimler and Volkswagen confirmed). Finally, a future looking focus will be given by a session on how connectivity is changing the products and services of automakers and what role the car will play in the connected world (Internet of Things) going forward.

Project Lead for Telematics Munich, Jack Palmer commented, “The team at Telematics Munich has been busy behind the scenes joining the dots between the connected car and connected world space. We aim to follow up on the hype of the Internet of Things and bring together the right people to catapult the car to become one of the primary nodes of the connected world. This year, delegates will not only hear from the most senior OEM execs about their present-day and upcoming infotainment offerings, but will be given a glimpse into the future and the opportunities that new tech offers, such as autonomous driving.”
