Infotainment

It's time for the Autotech Council to re-visit information and entertainment services in the car. Much has changed since 2013; purchases are up, satisfaction is down, and consumers are confused. We need to evaluate current opportunities and innovation in infotainment.

So what is the future of infotainment? Some wide-ranging general interest apps like Facebook seem to be receding from the space, while more targeted task-specific ones like Glympse seem to be making progress. Streaming music is a sure winner, and the two big smartphone platform makers are making inroads on roads. However, a recent Nielsen SPD survey revealed that satisfaction from infotainment functions is lower than most in-vehicle functions. Worse, 44% of respondents say they've never used the infotainment functions in their vehicles.

Join 100+ Autotech Council members, OEMs, vendors, startups and VCs to take a closer look at what is and what isn't working, the platforms, the delivery systems, the UI, and safety. We'll also take a look at what is coming around the corner, and hear from some early stage companies in content, services, systems, and platforms.

 
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.
 
This meeting is free for Autotech Council members, open to non-members for a $200 fee, and Rapid Fire Demo Slots are available during registration to companies who can show off new products or services based on infotainment technology.
