Hosted by John McElroy of Autoline.tv, Autoline After Hours: 2019 Review: On The Edge of Carmageddon will feature an expert panel, including Joe Langley, IHS Markit; Gary Vasilash, AD&P and myself. In this episode we discuss:
- The five main areas of technology disruption impacting the automotive industry, including: electrification, autonomous vehicles, connectivity, shared mobility and data monetization.
- How OEMs are racing to keep pace as vehicles become more connected, electrified and autonomous-driven super computers on wheels, causing the industry to become less focused on mechanical systems and more focused on passenger experiences and mobility systems.
- What footholds suppliers are finding in this new market, including development of new technology and talent, mergers and acquisitions, partnerships and one of the fastest growing business models–development and management of software that can be monetized and create competitive barriers.
How will suppliers gain and maintain the competitive edge necessary to survive these technological shifts? What opportunities exist for collaboration? And could Detroit and Silicon Valley join forces?
