Building a New Business: Restructuring & Revision

The only constant is change in today’s rapidly moving auto industry and this includes business and manufacturing assumptions. New technology and thinking enable us to crowdsource a car’s plans, parts, and production for a truly customized car. They also allow us to restructure telematics business assumptions in order to make connectivity possible for the masses and subscriber-retention issues a thing of the past. Join us for a discussion about the opportunities and struggles that come with challenging the status quo.

Autonomous Car Fallout: What Happens Next?

We all expect the autonomous car to arrive soon—very soon. But are we ready for the changes that autonomous cars will bring? There are effects and arguments spawning from self-driving cars that will ripple into every aspect of modern society. What happens to car ownership, public transportation systems, video chatting while driving, parking lots, elderly drivers, drinking while driving laws, and road maintenance? All good questions but the main one is this: Is the technology coming faster than our preparations for it?

Let's Make a Deal: Selling the Connected Car

If you’ve been to a dealership lately, you know that staying on top of rapidly changing technology is a challenge for even the best salespeople. What’s it like to sell or service a connected vehicle? How do OEM technology decisions impact the dealer-consumer relationship? What can dealers tell us about consumer pain points when it comes to connected technology? Discover just what the dealer thinks about the connected car and how technology helps or hinders sales.

Fortifying a City: The Dangers Hackers Present

Cities today cannot operate without connectivity, which makes them especially tempting targets for cybercrime and cyberterrorism. We cannot be complacent about protecting our efficient, always-present connectivity as the world becomes more and more reliant upon it. Learn what is being done to secure our network defenses against misuse, and how experts set traps and track down those who might take advantage of our increasing digital dependence.
