Digitalization and new mobility trends, the future of car repair
Autopromotec Conference is an international conference welcoming experts from all over the world. The event provides a great opportunity for automotive professionals such as equipment and spare parts manufacturers, dealers, car companies and supply chains, to meet in a business-networking environment and learn about the latest products and solutions with a view to planning future strategies.
Autopromotec Conference is organized by Autopromotec, the most specialized international exhibition of automotive equipment and aftermarket products.
4 disruptive forces are gaining pace and deeply affecting the entire world of self-repair: digitalization and connectivity, electrification, autonomous driving, shared mobility.
- An update on penetration of digitalization during various processes such as identification and purchase of spare parts and assistance, repair and overhaul services;
- Connectivity, through OEM boxes or aftermarket solutions, automatic management of customer relationship, on-board diagnostics and repair and workshop equipment management;
- IOT and cloud management, aimed at collecting and processing millions of data for more accurate predictive maintenance;
- Electrification, where availability of charging points and vehicle autonomy become important key points;
- Self-driving vehicles and VtoI (Vehicle to Infrastructure) / VtoV (Vehicle to Vehicle) communication;
- Evolution of regulations and rules in a data-driven economy: ownership, accessibility, usage – either free of charge or against payment - of data will affect winning players and organizations;
- AI: in other words, how the technological evolution of artificial intelligence (deep learning and artificial neural networks) will provide increasingly more complete and performing solutions (robots, 3D printing);
- The key role of the human factor in a technology-ridden future.
During the conference, Startup and research areas will be available for B2B matchmaking activities.
