Telematics Wire is organising the fifth edition of the biggest Connected Vehicle show on 3rd, 4th & 5th March 2020, at Radisson Blu. The international conference and exhibition will have participation of more than 1200 registered delegates, 80 exhibitors, and 60 speakers. Vehicle displays and the exhibition will be open to visitors. There will be 10 sessions discussing the pressing issues and the future of the automotive industry, i.e., connected, autonomous, smart, shared & electric mobility.
India is a fast-emerging market for connected vehicle business along with vehicle telematics which is developing quite promisingly in the country. Telematics-enabled mobility is the key to the implementation of Intelligent Transportation System, which is expected to drive the future of connected transportation. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has taken laudable initiatives regarding road safety to reduce road accidents. Government policies encouraging and mandating the provision of a certified vehicle location tracking device and one or more emergency buttons in public transport vehicles is likely to enhance safety and security. As the ministry is also planning to make ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) a mandatory feature in the upcoming vehicles by early 2022, the time has come for the industry to step up and support the government to incorporate these technologies in the ITS infrastructure.
“Over the next few years, we will see many applications and services based on ‘Connected Vehicle’. Also, the automotive & transportation industry will see huge investment in cyber security, blockchain, data analytics and AI/ML. All this call for continued deliberations amongst the subject matter experts and interest groups on Connected Vehicle platform,” said Maneesh Prasad, CEO, Telematics Wire.
His Excellency, Brendan Ward, the Ambassador of Ireland to India said, “The technology sector in Ireland is leading the mobility revolution, be it disruptive technologies, hardware and/or data services that support autonomous, connected, electric and shared technologies. Through our participation in the CV2020 conference, we aim to reach out to the Auto industry to showcase the Irish technology ecosystem and share all the latest developments in the sector, while welcoming Indian companies to visit Ireland to witness the ecosystem themselves.”
Topics such as Intelligent Connectivity, ADAS Adoption & Exploring Vehicle Autonomy, Simulation & Testing, Emerging Technologies like AI, ML, Blockchain, Speech & Voice Recognition, Intelligent Cloud & Data Management, M2M & IoT Solutions in Smart City Mobility, Connected Vehicle Cyber Security and Automotive Telematics are just a few among many of the hot topics that will give the audience an insight into the future of vehicles. Utmost care has been taken in choosing the topics that are relevant to the present times and will help in coming out with solutions to make the future more connected and sustainable.
