2017 has seen a huge evolution in industry discussions as mobility pilots roll out on roads across the continent. To reflect this, the event is bringing case studies to the stage as “Vehicle 2 X” becomes a key industry reality.

Annie Reddaway, senior project director at TU-Automotive, said “For 15 years TU-Automotive Europe has been the core meeting and learning point for Europe’s connected car industry. This year we are back in Munich with a new venue and new look and feel.

She continued, “We are bringing real world data & case studies to the stage as the industry prepares to roll out connected & automated technologies that will revolutionise not just the auto industry, but mobility in our cities and the whole society.”

This year’s TU-Automotive Europe promises to answer every pressing question facing the industry, including automation, business strategy, A.I., the data exchange, smart cities and more. Here are some key topics:

Shape the Future of Digital Auto Tech:

  •     Vehicles Meet Everything: Integrate V2X to increase safety, interact with cities, and pave the way for autonomy. Debate which networks (e.g. 5G v ITS G5) will optimise V2X functionality
  •     Cities Get Smart: Share data sets, integrate with intermodal MaaS and test AV fleets to make auto a key collaborator with cities in delivering smart transportation & hitting environmental targets
  •     The Cognitive Car: Use machine learning & predictive analytics to optimise AV “driving” and safety whilst harnessing A.I. to deliver a truly personalised cockpit experience
  •     The Human Factor: Learn from ground-breaking public pilots and consumer studies to create an AV strategy that speaks to the whole market, not just early adopters. Will people trust machines?
  •     The New Auto Ecosystem: Create new partnerships to capitalise on disruptive business models and tech, i.e. blockchain and the shared data marketplace
