With NHTSA making a key decision on the future of safety systems for light vehicles in August 2013, now is the time to stay informed and realize the key government-led trigger point of the US vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure market.
As a consequence of this, Telematics Update have just opened registration to a free webinar for the connected vehicle audience: “The Impact of US Mandate-Driven Auto Safety” featuring three senior executives from Toyota, Cisco and the Michigan Department of Transport.
The webinar will discuss the primary strategies that can be devised to achieve ROI on vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication deployment once NHTSA have made their key verdict.
Precksha Saksena-Sood, Managing Director of Telematics Update, commented, “A positive NHTSA agency decision in August this year will create a surge of interest and demand for DSRC infrastructure for the V2V & V2I space.” This webinar will reveal key dialogue showing how NHTSA’s actions will affect the automotive value chain, creating safer roads and bring about significant contracts for key industry players across the US market.
The interactive event will be held on Friday 15th March at 11am EST and is now open to the entire connected vehicle community!
Rapid technology developments in high speed connectivity, with other vehicles and the infrastructure, have led to a host of new safety and mobility applications which will be revealed in the webinar. The 45 minute session includes a live Q & A and will be delivered by 3 key industry figures: Vladimeros Vladimerou, Senior Engineer Integrated Vehicle Systems at Toyota, Roger Berg, Vice President of Wireless Technologies at Denso, and Steve Cook, Engineer of Operations and Maintenance Construction and Technology, Michigan DOT.
The experts will shed light on the technical challenges for deployment and evolution of V2V systems such as protocol development and the potential of incorporating cellular connectivity for faster deployment. It offers a chance to understand how some of the most successful connected-vehicle players are viewing the future development drivers for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure technology integration.
More than that, the opportunity to ask questions directly to industry thought-leaders for first-hand answers is here. The webinar can be joined for free at:
