Rapid technological advancements have enabled big changes in the automotive industry and the very definition of what the car is capable of. Building on telematics technology, connected cars are now mass-deployed on the road, which combined with mobile technology, is enabling new ownership and business models. Meanwhile, the day that fully autonomous vehicles are on the roads is edging ever closer as engineers refine the necessary technology and safety features.
The speakers on this webinar will each offer their own perspective on three areas shaking up the automotive industry: connected cars and telematics data, disruptive models of auto mobility, and the ultimate end-goal: the autonomous vehicle. They will plot the industry’s roadmap to the car of the future.
Telematics Update Project Director, Annie Reddaway stated, “We’re at a very exciting period in the history of the automotive industry. The automobile changed America, and in the next ten years it looks set to change it as radically as it did 100 years ago. I look forward to hearing our speakers’ thoughts on how to come together to deliver this revolution.”
To understand what lies ahead, Telematics Update has organized a live webinar entitled ‘The Paradigm Shift In Auto Mobility.’ The one hour session will be delivered by key industry figures including:
Douglas Claus, Head of Department Product Requirements, Development & ConnectedDrive, BMW North America
Raj Paul, VP of Automotive and Emerging Technologies, Lochbridge
The webinar will cover:
Automotive technology is evolving at the fastest rate in its history - challenging the very concept of ‘the car’. The minds behind this shift will be joining us to plot a timeline for trends and tech. that are set to enable this automotive revolution.
- Connected Cars: Data is fast emerging as the killer app solution. How can it be leveraged to make a contextual, useful and upgradable - but non-intrusive - connected driving experience?
- Auto mobility is being shaken up as traditional ownership models step aside and car sharing becomes just as viable. How can automakers adapt to protect profits and promote their brand?
- Autonomous Vehicles: The date is disputed but inevitable. Answer the pressing questions re. legality & liabilities etc. for putting self-driving cars on the road
