“What’s Coming Next in Mobility” Panel

2020 is here and where are all the autonomous vehicles everyone was a mixture of excited and apprehensive about? Overly optimistic AV timeline predictions by OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers and deep-pocketed tech companies proved largely false, but one thing is clear: the auto industry is changing quickly. Change comes in every direction and behind much of this greater mobility transformation are startup companies pushing larger, industry heavyweights to consider new solutions and technologies to keep up with the times. These companies may offer myriad technologies and services, yet they all compete for the attention of the large industry players. This panel discussion will offer perspectives from startups in the mobility space on how they approach getting their technologies in front of OEMs and other major players, while continuing to develop and mature their solutions to remain on the cutting edge.

Moderated by Leslie Allen, Mobility Editor, Automotive News
