At CES 2019, GENIVI, SAE, SEMA and Mobile Electronics partnered to present a full-day "Connect2Car” conference.  The first session, “Connecting the Autonomous World” with 440 in attendance (standing room only) setting the pace for the day where a new record in overall attendance was established with over 1,400 attending the sessions below (recordings for each session are provided below).

"Connecting the Autonomous World" 

In the future, transportation will be autonomous. No doubt that the technology deployment can be accelerated, but it will require constant communication to networks around the AVs and to the cloud.  Data exchange and standards are critical. We’ll discuss numerous areas that the connected ecosystem will need to collaborate on.

"The Future of In-Vehicle Infotainment"

Imagine if the automotive and broadcast industries collaborated on product design. Imagine if broadcast and automotive industries could deliver even greater value to their customers. Imagine what the world looks like when humans no longer drive. Imagine if. We invite you to imagine the future of in-vehicle entertainment with us.

“Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence”

Data drives the business.  What pieces of data make a difference in today’s environment?  How will we learn what the important pieces are to base our decisions?  Do we really need all the data?  Or, are we smart enough to know how to choose just the right pieces?
