The Connected Car has quickly accelerated from a futuristic concept to a tangible form of transportation that consumers can now purchase at their local automobile dealer. From in-dash apps that supply car occupants with cloud-connected information and services to driver assist systems that can take over steering and braking to prevent accidents, technology is making driving easier, safer and more enjoyable. And this is just the beginning. Game-changing technologies such as vehicle-to-vehicle communication and autonomous cars that could change driving as we know it are just down the road.

But issues ranging from driver distraction and privacy to government oversight and the pace of technology adoption by automakers are just a few of the potential roadblocks that could keep the connected car from hitting full speed. The second-annual Connected Car Conference (C3) at CE Week will again provide an ideal forum for thought leaders from the automotive and technology industry to meet, discuss and move forward on overcoming these and other obstacles, as well feature displays of the latest cutting-edge car technology.

Some of the topics scheduled to be addressed by prominent C3 speakers and panelists include:

• Safeguarding driver privacy

• How the auto industry can speed innovation

• Is technology the problem or solution to distracted driving?

• Navigating towards a self-driving future

This half-day program will take place during one of the consumer electronics industry’s biggest events, which draws over 6,000 attendees to the media capital of the world. Coproduced by noted connected car expert and writer Doug Newcomb, C3 will bring together innovators from automotive and consumer electronics to drive the conversation on car technology.


Who’s attending:

  • Car manufacturers
  • OEM suppliers
  • Trade and business media
  • Market analysts
