2nd Annual Global Forum on Connected Cars: The Road Ahead

Driving innovations for automotive leaders: Collaboration, partnerships and passion


Thursday 5th – Friday 6th March 2020

Nearly all automotive companies have entered the race towards highly automated and autonomous cars. Yet many challenges are still in the way of having a vehicle that can recognize objects, localizes itself and make intelligent decisions. The 2nd Annual Connected Car Summit will focus on the areas of advanced business models, revenue streams, partnerships, big data processing, sensor fusion and machine learning, in particular, how to fast-track your development in this dynamic market in Europe.


With presentations from top leaders in this field, interactive panel discussions and many networking opportunities this conference will give you insight into the latest developments and available solutions for the next generation of connected vehicles.

Join us for our 2nd Annual Global Forum on Connected Cars: The Road Ahead and enjoy high level networking, best practice benchmarking opportunities and an agenda which offers innovation to all connected and automotive car stakeholders.  This is a uniquely focused agenda and a chance to be part of a dynamic new programme of leading disruptors across the ecosystem. 

Why attending:

Connected cars are set to have a dramatic impact on both industry and the economy in Europe over the next decade and the biggest direct impact will be on consumers. Current estimates based on the roadmap of AVs in the Europe indicate that connected and automated car deployment can save every commuter nearly 42 hours in travel time, annually. Commuters stand to benefit from a 20% increase in average commuting speeds per journey due to reduced congestion and smoother traffic flows. As a result, workforce productivity is set to surge. In addition, CAV (Connected and Autonomous Vehicles) implementation will generate increased revenues across the automotive value chain.

  • Wifi vs 5G evolution: Who’s backing which technology and what difference will it make
  • Security and hackability plus privacy:  How will we secure data gathered from connected vehicles
  • Reliability: Critical ways to build trust in cars, refuelling, sensors and networked services
