Connected vehicles hold the promise of increased safety and security, better network efficiency, improved traffic management and reduced environmental impact.
Car makers, mobile-network operators, insurers, IT solutions providers… all are looking towards this new market to boost their sales and turn the upcoming eCall regulation into a source of profit rather than an additional cost.
However, connected vehicles can only be developed as part of a standardised eco-system. The question is: how can actors from very diverse industry backgrounds co-operate to set up profitable business models and avoid the chicken and egg dilemma? Regulation, big data, multi-industry cooperation: these are the key drivers of the next paradigm shift in transportation.
This unique conference, organised by European Voice with the support of Huawei, brought together policy makers, public authorities and C-level executives from a broad range of sectors to discuss the future of smart mobility and the opportunities and risks in developing products and services to build up an ecosystem of connected vehicles and intelligent road networks.
Fabrizio Cortesi, Director of Strategy and Cooperation at Huawei, spoke at the event.
