The GSMA recently predicted that the majority of new cars will have some form of connectivity by 2025, driven largely by the rapid growth of embedded mobile technologies and the European Commission’s in-vehicle emergency call services requirement.

While the European Commission has selected ’embedded mobile’ for eCall, the debate continues as to the best approach for connecting vehicles to off-board services. Is there an all-round best approach? If not, what mix of connectivity may work best in the future?

With these questions in mind, the Connected In-Vehicle Infotainment Global Summit (25-26 September) has been designed as an interactive, OEM-led forum to connect carmakers with stakeholders in mobile industries to explore opportunities for creating commercially viable business models that satisfy customers’ demands for in-vehicle connectivity and provide an acceptable ROI.
