Telematics Update: A shocking statistic has been revealed - the average American commuter now spends 250 hours a year behind the wheel of a vehicle (KPMG Self-Driving Report 2012). In addition to this, with mobility becoming increasingly expensive and inefficient, the rising media focus on autonomous and self-driving vehicles is coming to the fore.

Precksha Saksena-Sood, Managing Director of Telematics Update, states "Autonomous and automated vehicles are gaining more traction across both the industry and consumer space, and with good reason. Generation Now are living increasingly connected lives, and while they want mobility on demand, some see the act of driving as a distraction from texting, not the other way around."
The key issue of autonomous vehicles and their relation to emerging Vehicle to Vehicle and Vehicle to Infrastructure topics in the United States will be discussed in greater detail and given its own key panel discussion at the V2V & V2I for Auto Safety USA 2013 Conference this summer (July 9-10, 2013), including contributions from AUVSI, the key US representative body for self-driving cars.
The event will gather industry fore-runners from GM, Ford, Nissan, Hyundai, Volkswagen, Chrysler, Toyota, Denso, ITS Michigan, Continental, Delphi, US DOT, AUVSI, CVTA, the Connected Vehicle Proving Centre, Tass International, AASHTO and many more.
The symposium will be North America's only dedicated forum for key stakeholders designed to discuss innovative business models to accelerate the uptake of V2X systems and infrastructure, including how self-driving cars will help influence the deployment of smarter vehicles on our roads.
After months of independent research into the V2X market in the US, Telematics Update uncovered the following topics for in- depth discussion at the conference:
*Comply with government (nhtsa) legislation
*Define business models with smartphones, subsidies and traffic
*Capitalize on growth from the european and east asian markets
*Investment interest in v2x technology
*Smartphones as the catalyst for v2v & v2i
*The case for automated and autonomous vehicles
150+ executives (OEMs, state and federal DOTs, NHTSA, tier 1 and supplier executives) are set to attend the conference and the structured networking sessions to secure crucial partnerships.
