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. These agendas always include plenty of time for networking, business discussions, and an interactive format that promotes relationships between member and non-member companies.
Today’s meeting will talk about vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2x), along with various government and industry-sponsored research programs and new products and services. Much of the enabling technology is available, so our discussion will focus on products and services that are implementing and relying on this short-range communication, and as always we include several start-up demos to supplement the perspective of major vendors and OEMs.
