Location: Main Stage
Date: Mon, April 20
Time: 10:10 AM - 10:20 AM

Sitting at the intersection of wireless communications, location technology, and in-vehicle sensors, telematics applications help manage the emerging Internet of (moving) Things. With connected devices and smartphones residing alongside vehicles like planes, trains, ships and automobiles, telematics companies can enable new vehicle interactions with infrastructure, data, and people. From route planning software to real-time safety reporting, similar enhancements will continue to be in demand in the mobile space that will improve the ease and safety of driving, connect moving things and create the future smart cities. In this talk, we’ll explore the opportunities and challenges in establishing a robust telematics platform, via mobile applications, that address the transportation ecosystem.
