Topic: In-Car Applications

Consumer demand for applications is both a threat and an opportunity for car makers. By providing a better in-car app experience, OEMs can satisfy much of that consumer demand, while providing excellent car-specific applications, which take advantage of the unique environment, controls, sensors, and context awareness that a car can provide.

The 2013 JD Power Auto Emerging Tech Study revealed that consumers want their car’s infotainment system to be powered by their smartphone. The only way for carmakers to retain an active role in infotainment is to offer compelling, competitive, and integrated content solutions that differentiate from phones. As part of this effort, the Autotech Council invites you to our In-Car Apps meeting, where we’ll look at some of the in-car apps and app platforms that help carmakers differentiate and win customers back from the smartphone option.

The Autotech Council opens its doors to non-members a few times each year to take a deep dive into a segment of the auto industry that is attracting large amounts of innovation and investment. These ½-day, executive-format agendas highlight a few larger vendors who are leading the segment forward and bring dozens of undiscovered companies to the stage as well. These agendas always include plenty of time for networking, business discussions, and an interactive format that promotes relationships between member and non-member companies.
