Electric Vehicles are poised to play a larger role in our automotive, transport, and mobility future. The International Energy Agency predicts that Electric vehicles will grow from 3 million to 125 million by 2030, and that the worlds EV fleet grew 54 percent to 3.1 million in 2017. That's a staggering growth rate for the total fleet size, which normally moves slower than annual sales. Meanwhile, in Norway, EVs accounted for 39% of new car sales last year, and 6.4% of their fleet. (Wow! Norway sure hates oil!) While some major OEMS like FCA have been openly hostile towards an EV future, others like VW have embraced the opportunity with conviction.

Data and Analytics is an extremely important area of investment for carmakers serious about long-term relevance. As value-creation is shifting away from commodity vehicles, and towards production efficiencies and user experiences, the space is hot with innovation and startups. Like all industries, the path to disruptive transformation is paved with incremental opportunities along the value chain, and many vendors play a role in this new data-driven future, from sensors that gather the data all the way through the value chain to in car entertainment options that use data to predict the content that will please the passenger. GM is responding to the market shift from the value of steel to the value of information. Data will reshape and improve vehicle design, collaboration, manufacturing, logistics, marketing, customer interactions, and the customer in-car experience. If information is going to be the focus of value creation, then carmakers need to stop outsourcing it, and find ways to put data at the center of their business. But Data and Analytics for mobility go well beyond the carmaker, and we're seeing progress also in: traffic information providers municipal and other governments for smart mobility and smart cities car sharing, or Mobility-as-a-Service stakeholders And the space is hot with innovation and startups.

Maps have progressed from rudimentary scrolls, through detailed geographically accurate versions, and through multi-layered computerized GIS systems. Meanwhile the demand for good maps in Transportation have moved well beyond a pretty display and turn-by-turn directions in a four-inch console SatNav display. Centimeter-level detail, fleet learning, z-axis information, and a "living map" is the new standard. Mapping is one of three critically important and slightly redundant modeling tools used to enable self-driving cars: Sensors that read the world around the car and offer a 3D model V2V and V2I support that communicates real-time real-world data to the car Maps, which offer an historic model of the world around the car The Autotech Council's meeting on HD Maps and GIS Systems looks at the maps needed for autonomous vehicles that are not the papyrus scribbles of the past.

The impact of connectivity on the automotive industry is massive. But the ways cars, their owners and passengers currently connect are immature: Customers must choose one specific carrier SIMs must be programmed for a specific, region-based carrier Few pricing options are available Customer interfaces for buying connectivity are an afterthought Who pays for connectivity is not settled The Council is convinced this is about to improve quickly. Customers will soon buy cars with programmable SIM cards, their choice of carrier. They will be able to select pricing models on the car's screen, and subscribe/pay on the spot. Annual, monthly, daily…and even one-time rates will be offered. Also, customers will be able to choose which services they want to enable in their car, such as safety only, infotainment, or hotspot Wi-Fi. In our meeting about the Connected Car, we'll discuss the emerging service offerings, technologies, business models, and pricing models that consumers can choose. This meeting brings together the Telecom Council and its network operators with IOT Forum and Autotech Council members.

These are crazy days for automotive HMI. In-car features are increasing fast, display and input technologies are rapidly changing. And while automation is taking some of the cognitive load off, connected apps and cloud services are driving the load up. Drivers today need to be given the appropriate blend of vehicle information, entertainment, and info about the outside environment. The connection between the car and the driver is becoming tighter than ever in both Input and Output directions. Cars now watch you, sense your body from the seat, detect your health and level of alertness. They then provide haptics, audio, and visual feedback. The only senses left out are taste and smell – and we've taken a few road trips where even those come into play! Some issues at this juncture: Driver engagement in semi-autonomous mode Automation – handover Distraction and cognitive load Multi-modal (voice, display, haptics) Gestures Varying cognitive loads (ex: stoplight v traffic) Are more/bigger screens really the answer? Information Architecture Design, delighting the customer Ease of use. Learnability Updates of HMI.

Computer Vision is the junction of image acquisition (ex: cameras) and the computer power that can make sense of the images coming from the cameras. Using Computer Vision (CV), systems can make some kind of sense of their world, which is in turn used to help machines operate in that world. For our purposes, CV is the creation of usable 3D models and recognition of the objects in that model for the purposes of ADAS or autonomous cars. On the sensory side, CV is not limited to cameras. Our meeting will include "vision" that goes beyond anthropomorphic sensory capabilities, to include things like laser, sonar, and light frequencies above and beyond our eyes' reach. Cars are not people, which can be used to their advantage to "see" so much more than we can. On the processing side, CV is dependent on the processing power of the underlying machine, and also on the AI of the software that powers it. The AI needs to take wireframe models of the car's environment, and "understand" what it is seeing through object recognition and machine learning: When is a child about to enter the road, and when is the child just standing on the shoulder? When is a fixie bike just balancing at standstill, and when is it about to cut in front of the car? CV means seeing these types of objects, understanding them, and making useful predictions about their physical paths and threat levels. Join 100+ Autotech Council members, OEMs, vendors, startups and VCs to take a closer look at the sensors, the computing hardware, and the software behind Computer Vision.

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.

The processing power in cars is moving even faster than Moore's law. That's because, in addition to gains from faster processors, there is also additional need and thus increased per-car spend on computing power. Current high-end cars carry an arsenal of diverse sensors, display screens, human interfaces, ADAS features, Internet, and Infotainment apps, as well as the usual battery of car management functions. Something needs to crunch all that data to make sense of it. Our meeting will look at the needs and uses of car compute power. But car compute is not the whole story. Much like Google Voice recognition or Siri, the mobile unit is better when it leverages the power of the cloud. In turn, the data gathered from the car can be aggregated and uploaded in order to augment the knowledge stored in the cloud. Thus, the optimal structure is a partnership between car compute and cloud compute – however, the car must be able to function independently when connectivity is (inevitably) disrupted. So, this duality offers us ample room for discussion and debate for our meeting: · How much compute is needed, and for what uses? · What is the impact of autonomy on the processor requirements? · Do cars need an AI level of capability? · What about redundancy, like aviation? · Where is that compute power best located in the car, and outside? · What are the privacy implications of this dual brain? What about the security risks?

We're done with the theoretical discussion. Connected cars now occupy the roadways all around us. Older cars have ample aftermarket OBDII solutions, and increasing numbers of new models have some sort of Internet connectivity baked in by the OEM. The connectivity is powering personalized services, infotainment, security, Usage Based Insurance, vertical enterprise functions, software updates, car sharing, and remote control features. It's happening. Our Connected Car meeting is a great discussion of these innovations, present products, and the direction we are going. For this meeting, we bring together two important Silicon Valley groups, the Autotech Council with dozens of auto companies, and the Telecom Council with hundreds of members from the telecom, app, and mobility industry. This great mix of the right companies means lots of insight, knowledge, and opportunity for deal-making.

Today's new cars average 60-100 sensors on board, and they are expected to have double those numbers within 5 years. These numbers translate to approximately 22 billion sensors used in the automotive industry per year by 2020. Why you gotta be so sensitive? Because you can only manage that which you measure. More sensors enable “smarter†and more complicated cars. Which, if we manage this transition well, can translate into opportunity, improved safety, and happier customers. But if we manage it poorly, can translate to mountains of under-utilized data and privacy risks. So what are the emerging applications enabled by the next-generation sensors and electronics? And what are the technologies that will enable new applications? What will the industry do with all the data? This meeting is free for Autotech Council members, open to non-members for a $200 fee, and Rapid Fire Demo Slots are available during registration to companies who can show off new products or services based on sensors and sensor technology.

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.

As automobiles become prolific gatherers of data, and as more private data is stored in the car and in the carmarker's cloud, we must escalate the importance of protecting the customers' data from black hat operatives. Additionally, as ADAS and autonomous vehicles connect live actuators and car control to the data, the risks of malicious attacks on cars escalates to life-or-death level. As a result, automakers are far more aggressive about securing their products than would be your average smartphone app maker. There simply is much, much more hanging in the balance. So what do OEMs do? There are various driving forces and constraints at work here: customer confidence, regulatory approval, legal compliance, and road safety. The simplest thing would be to lock down the car like a castle with a moat, but of course, this is not an option in this rapidly advancing connected world. So carmakers must sandbox, secure, monitor, and failsafe their products. In this Autotech Council meeting, we'll discuss the various approaches carmakers are taking, and hear from some of the solution providers who can provide the right levels of authentication, authorization, access, accounting, and analytics.

The Autotech Developer Challenge gives developers the ability to show off their innovative work, and provide our members the opportunity to engage with them and work together as potential partners and customers. The October member meeting was conducted at the Autotech Developer Challenge and included a discussion exploring app and service possibilities in the automotive space, demos and coding presentations, and networking with the developers and supporting OEMs. We started the meeting by getting input on the type of apps the audeince would like to see developers create in these areas: Apps that utilize Projection (displaying app content and interactivity on in-car screens) Diagnostic apps and services, which can utilize data from the standard OBDii port or another source Enterprise/fleet apps that add value to the B2B market Home-car connectivity apps and services that link electronics in the car with a user’s home, or other outside services (such as personal calendars, email, entertainment, etc.) Internet of Things-based apps and services The App and Service Possibilities for Auto Industry Panel included representatives from Volkswagen, Renault, Toyota, and Honda. Developer Challenge Sponsors (Carvoyant, Triggerfinger Software, Faurecia, & GROM Audio) spoke about their technology to the audience including Autotech Council members and developers. After lunch, the developers met with mentors (Honda Silicon Valley Lab, Nissan, Renault, Toyota, & Volkswagen) and began coding.
