The Topics Defining the Debate in 2017:

  • Pivot from Metal to Mobility:

    Create customer-first products and services, e.g. dynamic leasing & in-car payments. Engage consumers and diversify revenue streams to unlock the ‘new auto business’

  • Test Track or Highway?

    From tech development (perception & AI) to overcoming societal barriers (regulation & trust), map the billions of miles required to validate AVs. What’s the risk/ reward ratio?

  • Cybersecurity Never Sleeps:

    With auto attack surfaces proliferating, collaborate with regulators, associations and partners to create best practices for end-to-end cybersecurity

  • Next-Gen Wireless Infrastructure:

    Evaluate 5G vs. LTE vs. DSRC for the roll out of data-thirsty IVI, critical OTA services and future-proofed ADAS. Which spectrums deliver on speed, safety and security?

  • Build the Smart Urban Ecosystem:

    Think beyond the car and transportation silos in a data-sharing urban mobility mix. Keep auto brands relevant as cities invest millions to become sustainable and smart
