Next month’s first V2X for Auto Safety & Mobility Conference(20-21 February, Frankfurt, Germany) will bring together expert speakers from ITS UK, European Commission, BMW, Renault and SCANIA to devise a unified commercialisation and deployment strategy for vehicle and infrastructure tech.
Vehicle to vehicle communication will transform automotive safety, enabling deployment of effective active safety features for mass market adoption. This offers a huge business opportunity for the telematics, automaker and ITS communities as there is a chance to provide the technology and strategies to deploy this technology on European roads. The V2X for Auto Safety and Mobility Conference is the first opportunity for key stakeholders to come together to learn, debate and build new relations that will be fundamental to the monetization of this new tech. The expert speaker line-up includes BMW, Renault, SCANIA, European Commission, ITS UK and many other V2X thought-leaders.
Shreya Ganapathy, Project Director for Telematics Update, stresses how fundamental this opportunity for these communities to converge really is. “To get this technology off the ground the ecosystem - government, automakers, telematics providers, tier ones and road operators - must communicate to find standards for interoperability and share results from FOTs (field operation tests). The proposed NHTSA mandate in the U.S. is already having an impact. European players have been spurred into action. Never before has the entire ecosystem needed to come together and this conference will bring all the research and testing that’s out there under one roof.”
The V2X for Auto Safety & Mobility Conference(20-21 February, Le Meridien Park Hotel, Frankfurt, Germany) has an independently researched agenda and will focus on the following topics:
The following experts are confirmed to share their knowledge on this emerging sector.
