The increasing consumer demand for car connectivity and intelligence has been a key driver of the connected vehicle market. Meanwhile governments around the world are starting to issue or preparing to issue regulations and policies on telematics and connected vehicles. According to a forecast by GSMA Intelligence, the connected vehicle market will be worth $358bn by 2020. 

Meanwhile ‘connected vehicles’ refers not only to in-car technology but also to a lifestyle and new business model for car services. The connected vehicle ecosystem, including car manufactures/OEMs, Internet companies, service providers, MNOs and government authorities are actively working together to accelerate the growth in this market. 

The Connected Vehicle Summit at MWC Shanghai will bring together the entire ecosystem to discuss hot topics from ADASs, C-ITS, to applications such as traffic safety, parking assistance, roadside assistance, remote diagnostics and more. Most importantly we will explore cross-industry cooperation in building the ecosystem.
