No Longer the Stuff of Science Fiction – Autonomous Vehicles Become Real

For the first time ever at the Consumer Telematics Show (CTS), attendees will be addressed by one of the C-level boardroom members of Volvo. This symbolizes how important the connected car and now, autonomous car projects have become to automakers. The session, which will take place one day before International CES, will look at how connectivity, mobility and autonomous tech are converging and shaping the strategies and future products of automakers.

Mr Bendrik is a firm advocate of the ‘all in’ approach for new mobility concepts, faster connectivity and autonomous technology. “This is our strong belief. This is why we have set-up an integrated approach with all three areas for Volvo’s ‘Drive Me’ pilot”. The ‘Drive Me – Self Driving Cars for Sustainable Mobility’ is the world’s first large-scale autonomous driving pilot using self-driving Volvo cars on public roads, in everyday driving conditions.”

Jack Palmer, Project Lead for CTS said, “To attract an executive of Mr Bendrik’s seniority really does show how integral connectivity, mobility and autonomous tech have become to the business plans of automakers. From the presentation, delegates will be able to identify what opportunities exist in supporting Volvo with their wider vision of making personal mobility sustainable”.

This will not be the only automaker announcement at the Consumer Telematics Show (CTS) – Audi and Nissan will also be using the event to set out their new vision for auto mobility, in front of a 500 person audience of automotive execs.
