TU-Automotive announced its agenda and speaker lineup for the Connected Fleets USA Conference & Exhibition 2016 (Nov. 15-16 in Atlanta), an event for the discussion and networking around future fleet management technologies in the USA.
Macro-level mobility concepts, government mandates & technological advances present a fabulous opportunity for tech players to develop their connected fleet business portfolios, according to TU-Automotive. As a reaction to this, tech providers and auto OEMs are looking to satisfy their customer’s needs by partnering with new and innovative companies who can help lower the total cost of operating a fleet through connected and active safety services/functions.
At Connected Fleets USA 2016, industry leaders and disruptors from Volvo Group, IBM, Zonar Systems, Navistar, GPS Insight, Trucker Path, Overhaul and many more will lay out their visions for the future of fleet management within the context of a world defined by connectivity, on-demand mobility and automation.
Jack Palmer, senior project director at TU-Automotive, said: “This year’s event comes at a very interesting time – M&A activity in the space has never been hotter. When we meet, we aim to plot out what the future of the industry will look like in the next 2, 3, 5 years ahead. As our delegates and clients know by now, we’ll be covering all the prevailing tech challenges in the industry – everything from fleets plugging into the IoT, the latest questions around data, active safety integration within fleets and the effects of the ELD Mandate.”
Prepare for the On-Demand Revolution: Improve Uptime, Efficiency & Safety:
- Fleet Shifts from Product to Service: Debate the impact that OEMs, TSPs & new tech entrants can have on applying on-demand mobility concepts to commercial vehicles
- Plugging Fleet into the IoT: Establish the data points of the smart city & logistics ecosystem that can improve the efficiency, safety & UX of fleets
- Data for Safety, Savings & Beyond: Dig deeper with trouble codes, identify what data to monetize & collaborate on data access to make use of the industry’s biggest asset
- Investing in a Buoyant Fleet Market: Consider M&A’s effect on ARPU, market competition & further activity, following big money industry deals
- Accident-Free from Sea to Shining Sea: Integrate telematics with active safety data to build a more accurate picture of driver behavior & lower maintenance costs
