More Information

 

The future of transport is shifting rapidly towards connected and autonomous vehicles. Europe, currently the second largest market for connected cars, is estimated to outpace North America and create the largest market by 2020. The pace of this progress means that regulation that protects public interests whilst encouraging innovation is continually evolving.

 

Connected Cars Europe brings all parties to the table for discussion around security and privacy, connectivity requirements, liability, consumer protection and public and private sector collaboration. We discuss how to ensure the economic potential of connected cars is fulfilled and the trends predicted for the future. Participants will explore how automakers are flourishing in partnership with dynamic new entrants and what all this means for traditional business models. 

 

This was an exciting opportunity to be part of a high level debate around the regulation of connected and autonomous vehicles and the business challenges and opportunities that come with it.

 

Sessions included:

  • Key policy considerations for building the connected car ecosystem in Europe
  • Spectrum and connectivity requirements for Connected Cars
  • Ensuring consumer trust and confidence
  • Data protection and data exchange
  • Disruptive business models and future trends of the connected and autonomous car industry in Europe
  • Plus new for 2017 -  A series of interactive lightning rounds with government officials, plus engaging ‘Tech Talks’ from leading innovators.
