The Auto Industry Kicks off 2014 with a Display of Innovation with Toyota, Mercedes-Benz and Ford Leading the Pack
Telematics Update: The automotive industry kicked off 2014 with a display of innovation at CES this January, telling the world that the connected car is not a figment of the future but firmly in the present.
It looks like 2014 is the year of the connected car. Toyota, Mercedes-Benz and Ford are just a few of the connected car star acts already making their 2014 debut. Toyota's FV2 “Future Mobility Concept” was a definite showstopper. Mercedes advanced the connected car conversation with integrations of wearable technology and Ford displayed its next iteration of AppLink, which will introduce a great deal more openness and will be launching in Europe next month. As the year of the connected car gets underway, Telematics Update can announce the dates for Europe’s most significant telematics event, Telematics Munich 2014, which will take place on 10th -11th November at The Hotel Dolce, Munich.
Telematics Update’s MD, Precksha Saksena-Sood is excited about this year’s event: “We’re really excited to announce the dates for this year’s Telematics Munich. We know how significant the event is for the European automotive calendar so we wanted to make sure the key connected car players have ample time to book mark the dates in their diary. Plus, this year’s Munich has some brand new additions. We’re yet to make an official announcement but The Telematics Update Awards will be crossing the pond this year and making their European debut at the Munich event. Look out for updates in the next few weeks”. The Telematics Update Awards recognise the hard work and innovation of companies working in the space and are a highly sought-after accolade to hold.
