Car-tech summit, Electronomous 2018, has been confirmed for INEC in Killarney on 2-3 May.
As many of us know, the car world is going through some massive changes. In recent days a lot of the talk has been around the future of diesel and petrol, and with Geneva happening, there is also a massive spotlight on car technology and what’s in store for the future. Last year saw the start of the inaugural car-tech summit, Electronomous. The name is powerful, say it out loud – E-LEC-TRON-O-MOUS. Did you sound like Optimus Prime?
The Electronomous summit certainly lives up to its strong name with organisers, Cartell.ie, confirming some of the speakers for the 2018 summit. World-renowned speakers include; Marcus Rothoff, Head of Volvo’s Autonomous Driving programme; Uwe Puetzschler, Head of Car2X at Nokia; Barry Napier, CEO of Cubic Telecom; and Gareth Dunsmore, Electric Vehicle Director with Nissan Europe, to name just a few.
The tech event will be hosted by legendary former Top Gear host, Quentin Wilson. Mr Wilson said the following about the event, “Electronomous is a major future transport event with industry-leading speakers, experts and fascinating debates. If you’re interested in the new era of personal mobility – it’s unmissable.”
The event will discuss some of today’s major motor talking points. Debates will arise on how technology is changing the motor world. We’ll hear about mobility solutions, as well as other key industry processes such as insurance, finance and sales – and the effects that car-tech will have on them.
According to Jeff Aherne, Director of Cartell.ie: “Technology is disrupting all aspects of the motor industry. Electric is replacing combustion and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are paving the way to Autonomy. This is an opportunity for all those with an interest in the space to understand what is coming”.
Confirmed attendees for Electronomous 2018 include; Volkswagen, IBM, Toyota, BMW, Honda, Applegreen, Valeo, TomTom, Audatex, the European Council for Automotive R&D (EUCAR) and the International Energy Agency (IEA).
Tickets cost €300 and are available from www.electronomous.com. The event takes place on 2-3 May 2018 in the INEC in Kerry.
