October Member Meeting

Autotech Council members gather every other month to review a handful of innovative products and solutions coming out of the auto industry's entrepreneurial community across the globe. Between 4 and 8 companies will get the chance to present to a group of innovation scouts for major auto manufacturers, vendors, distributors and investors. 

At these bi-monthly meetings, members get the chance to connect with startups one-on-one, network with other members in an informal setting, discuss trends in a executive round-table format, take private meetings over lunch, and still get back to the office by 1pm. Startups, in turn, get the opportunity to pitch several car makers and their vendors and suppliers at one time, without several business trips and weeks of business development. Each startup is given the opportunity to connect with the members in-person after their presentation. 

These bi-monthly meetings are for members only, free to attend, and closed to the public or the media.

It's time for the Autotech Council to re-visit information and entertainment services in the car. Much has changed since 2013; purchases are up, satisfaction is down, and consumers are confused. We need to evaluate current opportunities and innovation in infotainment.

So what is the future of infotainment? Some wide-ranging general interest apps like Facebook seem to be receding from the space, while more targeted task-specific ones like Glympse seem to be making progress. Streaming music is a sure winner, and the two big smartphone platform makers are making inroads on roads. However, a recent Nielsen SPD survey revealed that satisfaction from infotainment functions is lower than most in-vehicle functions. Worse, 44% of respondents say they've never used the infotainment functions in their vehicles.

Join the Autotech Council to take a closer look at what is and what isn't working, the platforms, the delivery systems, the UI, and safety.  We'll also take a look at what is coming around the corner, and hear from some early state companies in content, services, systems, and platforms.
