BMW, Global Radio and HERE Added to Discuss How to Augment the Driving Environment at Telematics Munich 2014

The telematics industry continues to plough R&D resources into the opportunities presented by next-gen sensors and the data that can be fed back to OEMs and consumers to aid the car and driver in adapting to their environments. These valuable insights (a result of advanced analytics) can be factored into smart routing and particularly focus on weather information, navigation and traffic updates.  In fact this type of ‘driving-centric’ content (alongside air quality information and EV charging point locations/offers) seems to be the area of the connected car that consumers are most inclined to use. According to Consumer Reports’ ‘2014 Car-Brand Perception Survey’, three-quarters of consumers that took part in the study stated that text-to-voice technology for texting and social networks in the car were largely unneeded and surplus to requirements. This shows that ‘back-to-basics’ infotainment services are what OEMs, Tier 1s and the rest of the ecosystem should be focussing on.  This will be the topic that BMW, Global Radio and HERE will focus on in their exclusive panel session at Telematics Munich:

After analysing these findings, Project Director for Telematics Munich 2014, Jack Palmer commented, “The annual predictions from consultancies across the industry are again predicting strong growth in the connected car market towards the turn of the decade. This growth will be led by daily relevant content services that are made possible through OEMs allowing content providers a greater level of access to data so that new products and services can be built, thus establishing a two-way, mutually beneficial relationship”.
