With the rise of technological innovation and advanced connectivity capabilities, the principle of the Connected Car offers significant, wide-scale benefits. Global car manufacturers, technology companies and mobile operators are enthusiastic and, across all regions, are investing significant resources into new and innovative programmes and services. These, they hope, will deliver competitive economic advantage, while supporting sustainability efforts.
However, there are a number of key challenges that still remain, such as ensuring cars are secure and reliable; meeting the spectrum needs for the industry; and ensuring that the industry is regulated in a way that works best for both consumers and business.
Sessions at this event looked at:
- How to tackle key challenges, such as C-ITS deployment, spectrum demands, interoperability and liability issues
- What consumers really want from their 'Connected Car experience'
- New business models, revenue streams and opportunities to collaborate
