Annie Reddaway, Project Director for this year’s conference stated: “TU-Automotive West Coast 2018 provides the perfect opportunity for senior stakeholders from across the value chain working on data analytics and applications for connected, autonomous mobility to learn from subject matter experts and strike up new partnerships.”

She continued, “We will be looking at the process from start to finish, including designing in-vehicle architecture for facilitating data processing, enabling autonomous vehicle functionality and delivering a personalized user experience.”

What to Expect at TU-Automotive West Coast 2018

The conference will feature keynotes, fireside chats and panels on technical, strategic and business questions facing those looking to harness data in to develop better, more intelligent vehicles and mobility. Topics include:

  • The Self-Thinking Vehicle: From perception & decision-making to the UX, employ artificial intelligence & machine learning methods to build contextually intelligent cars
  • Rethink Connectivity: Future vehicles will rely heavily on connectivity & data, but will our connectivity be good enough? Assess the tech & infrastructure, e.g. 5G, needed to deliver
  • Design Around Data: Build an infrastructure & architecture, incl. smart sensors & multi-purpose ECUs, primed for fast & cybersecure data processing (In a machine-friendly format!)
  • Edge & Cloud: Find the balance between vehicle edge computing (i.e. sensor data, critical local processing) for real-time decisions and using advanced data processing on the cloud
  • Data + Scale + Partners = Value! Ditch fragmentation & enable easier data access to build & scale services e.g. parking & UBI that benefit both consumers & cross-industry partners
  • Debunk the Blockchain Hype! Apply decentralized digital ledgers to the auto context to increase transparency & security, plus open opportunities for new services & monetization
