Connected Vehicles or In-Car Companions?

Conference Hall

13nd November, 15:00-15:30

The connected car is soon becoming an “Intelligent Personal Space” that features a number of technologies designed to provide the vehicle occupants with an in-vehicle experience where the car is more of a caretaker or companion that assists us with day-to-day tasks.

Connected cars are adding amazing new capabilities— like live traffic and weather, on-line music services, and virtual assistants. Unfortunately, Vehicle Infotainment Systems have become burdened with integrating these capabilities into a safe, seamless, and delightful experience. The future will be about seamless driver and passenger experiences.

We will talk about how the future of an connected experience looks like.
