About The Show

Vehicle connectivity and ADAS/autonomous technologies are indispensable for the future vehicle, one that can communicate with the world outside and drive itself powered by AI and sensors. Technologies both in and outside the vehicle are combining to create mobility-changing services, above and beyond conventional telematics and infotainment. What services will future users will demand, and how they can be realized and delivered?

TU-Automotive Japan 2018 will consolidate your understanding of the challenges ahead for the connected and autonomous vehicle. Gain insight from and debate with industry leaders and define your strategy for technology, the changing mobility landscape and user requirements.
