Future of Automotive: Connected, Efficient and Safe, but Who Owns the Data? Asks Future World Symposium


Co-publishers Note: I was the moderator of the very first telematics conferences back in the mid 1990’s. Back then the number two question (the first; what the heck is telematics?) was who does the data belong to? So in
twenty years nothing seems to have changed (except more people today understand what telematics is).

LONDON–March 23, 2012: Future World
Symposium has announced the line up of its first panel
debate, the connected car: who owns the data?, which will
identify the challenges and technology drivers for the car industry
as
it seeks to create safer, more efficient, truly connected vehicles.

“Manufacturers are using a large proportion of their RD
budgets to
increase the efficiency, safety and connectivity of vehicles and
there
is demand on manufacturers to integrate users’ phones
into the car”

The debate, held at Wembley Stadium on the 25th April as
part
of Future World Symposium, will examine the roadmap to the next
generation of vehicles, which will be connected, more efficient and
safer; highlighting emerging trends, identifying the vital underlying

technologies and asking: who owns the data?

Chaired by automotive analyst Nick Ford of Frost Sullivan, the
panel
will also include Freescale, Infineon, Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren
Electronic Systems and O2.

“Manufacturers are using a large proportion of their RD
budgets to
increase the efficiency, safety and connectivity of vehicles and
there
is demand on manufacturers to integrate users’ phones
into the car,”
said Nick Ford. “Consumers are willing to pay a premium
for vehicles
with this functionality and the right interface; but it leads to
three
important questions: how much access should be given third party
apps,
how do you maintain the integrity of third party data and who owns
these
data?”

Future World Symposium is a conference and exhibition that unveils
the
paths of global technological innovation, is set to take place at
Wembley Stadium on the 24th and 25th April.

Now in its second year, the event examines emerging trends and
opportunities for future automotive, eHealth, the connected home and
mobile consumer sector. A series of persuasive talks will be given by

industry leaders, analysts and researchers.
