Looking at the new session, Gareth Ragg, Project Director at Telematics Update commented, “The beginning of this year has been particularly rich in announcements related to the connected car. Google and Apple have made fresh plays in the automotive space and the connected car dominated this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show and was one of the biggest trending hashtags at the Mobile World Congress.  It is for this reason that we have moved with the market and added this session.  Talks are well under way with OEMs about who exactly will participate on this session.  There will be a high demand”.
