The Autotech Council opens its doors to non-members a few times each year to take a deep dive into a segment of the auto industry that is attracting large amounts of innovation and investment. These ½-day, executive-format agendas highlight a few larger vendors who are leading the segment forward and bring dozens of undiscovered companies to the stage as well. Expect plenty of carmakers, Tier 1 vendors, and entrepreneurs, a few presentations from companies leading the way and a bunch of startup pitches on products you haven't seen yet - all working in the Connected Car segment.
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.
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.
