The automotiveIT group is hosting another Mobility 3.0 carIT conference, which will focus on the new connectivity that is reshaping the global car industry.

The conference, the second of its kind, will take place during the Hanover IAA Sept 25. English-language registration and speaker information is now available at www.car-it.com/registration and www.car-it.com/speakers and a PDF version of the agenda can be downloaded here.

The inaugural Mobility 3.0 conference was held at the Frankfurt IAA last year, with more than 500 auto and IT industry executives attending.

This year's event will, once again, see a broad range of decision makers from automotive and IT companies speak about the conference theme:  "The automotive future is connected."

Presenters at the one-day German-language conference include:

  • Herbert Kohler, who is in charge of Daimler's future mobility strategy
  • Volkmar Tanneberger, head of development for the electrical and electronic platform of the Volkswagen brand
  • Pim van der Jagt, head of Ford's research center in Aachen, Germany
  • Burkhard Goeschel, chief technology officer of automotive supplier Magna International
  • Ulrich Bastert, head of sales and marketing for Mercedes-Benz trucks
Executives from carmakers will be joined by speakers from the IT and telecommunications industry to discuss how new connectivity will change tomorrow's cars.
On the agenda for the conference are: car-to-x communication, navigation and telematics of the future, driver assistance systems and traffic management.
The IAA, which focuses on commercial vehicles this year, will take place Sept 20 - 27. The show alternates between Frankfurt, which is the venue for the passenger car fair, and Hanover, which is the traditional venue for the commercial vehicles gathering.
