TU-Automotive is delighted to announce the latest additions to the stellar speaker line up with Autotrader, Jaguar Land Rover and Gett signing up to speak at Telematics Berlin. The conference and exhibition will be held on the 17th-18th May 2015 at the Hotel Berlin, Berlin.

These events are an excellent way to gain insight into the industry from different sources and to build your network of contacts.

With dealerships, predictive services and ride sharing being front of mind across the automotive industry, Telematics Berlin delivers insight from the most respected and experienced players in their fields; Nick King of Autotrader, Peter Virk of JLR and one of the shining lights of the ride hailing industry, Justin Hancock at Gett.

At the moment if a customer wants a new car they go to a dealership, but this experience is old, clunky and arguably broken. Nick’s presentation will cast light on relearning how to sell cars. Peter’s discussion around predictive IVI services and how our cars are learning ever more about drivers will provide invaluable insight into tomorrow’s entertainment. While Justin’s vital input into the multi modal mobility panel ensures the traditional taxi industry has a voice on stage but in a more future focused guise.

As Europe’s best dedicated connected car data forum, Telematics Berlin is growing with new companies joining every week. Head of Insight at Autotrader, Nick King, said “These events are an excellent way to gain insight into the industry from different sources and to build your network of contacts. The consumer adoption of media has changed the way we all interact with retailers. Today’s digitally savvy consumer expects transparency in advertising and in many ways the balance of power, traditionally with retailers as they had all the “admittedly limited “ data available and then swung towards customers, as social media took hold, is now levelling off. Car retailers have access to more data, which can then be turned into insight.”

Data Transforms the Automotive Industry

With an innovative city like Berlin, an industry in flux, and a host of big name speakers already confirmed (BMW, Volvo, Uber, Facebook, UNECE, Ford, etc.) this is the forum to join in 2016.

The topics that will be covered include:

  •     The Billion User OEM - Facebook steps up to utilise its vast consumer insight and data resources to push OEMs to broaden their horizons and look beyond the car buyer and instead start thinking of users. Discover how to leverage a brand to create the first billion-user OEM
  •     Whose Data is it Anyway? The revenue that can be generated from the proper use of data is vast but, whose is it in the first place and does increased openness mean increased profits?
  •     Urban ADAS – Data’s Big Challenge: As Tesla have shown autonomous driving is possible on the highways and autobahns with just car sensors but in the urban jungle more information is needed and for this we need smarter cities and cars that can handle the huge influx of data
  •     Who do you think you are? As companies load ever more infotainment options into the car we are faced with the paradox of choice. Can our data step in to teach the car who we are and what we like?
  •     Involving the Innovators: Traditional OEMs have very high barriers to entry for companies wanting to get their apps into the car; we explore what the industry can do to enable a new generation of developers
