Last week, an eagerly awaited event devoted to one of the most promising hi-tech segments has finally took place – Russia’s first Connected Car technology summit.
During the three days of МАТЕ'2015 exhibition, car enthusiasts and professionals had a unique possibility to see future technologies, which will disrupt modern automobile industry, experts claim.
In just three days, Connected Car floor has been visited by 3 500 people, which proves a high interest to the industry.
And this is hardly surprising: global and Russian markets of connected car systems and services are still young, and even the leaders have no distinct advantage over the small ambitious projects.
That’s why, Connected Car Summit, which took place on March 13, has become a unique (and first in Russia) floor, gathering car experts, medium and large business representatives, IT companies and independent developers, who discussed the current Connected Car market state and established useful contacts.
Summit participants included representatives of Cisco Systems, Yandex, GPS-Club, Remoto, Mobydee, RoadGear, Anytime, Reactive Phone, Original Group, e-Money, Teletreker and Elektromobili.
Summit speakers touched upon various important issues, including cyber security in cars, modern technologies for solving the problem of traffic jams, development and launching mobile apps for car enthusiasts, car fleet management and cost optimization and lots of more.
Exhibition area with connected cars has become one of the brightest event features, where really unique electric car Tesla Model S was the star of the show. There probably was no single visitor who didn’t make a selfie with a supercar!
All event visitors had a chance to sit inside of this engineering miracle, discover and check out all possibilities of the largest on-board computer touchscreen integrated in the car. Guests received even more valuable gift: as a nice bonus, all ticket owners were given the certificate for test drive of Tesla Model S or any other electric car, provided by the summit partner Elektromobili.
Now event is in the past. Its organizer Smile-Expo thanks all participants, speakers, journalists and guests for such an interest in this summit. We sincerely hope that Connected Car has been useful and you’ve discovered something new about this exciting industry!
