AECC Presents “Seizing the Opportunity for Connected Vehicle Services” at Mobile World Live Webinar on June 22

AECC Members DENSO, Ericsson and Nexar Demonstrate Their Innovative Proof-of-Concept Approach to Demonstrate Connected Vehicle Service Solutions

WAKEFIELD, Massachusetts, June 15, 2022BUSINESS WIRE)–The Automotive Edge Computing Consortium (AECC), a non-profit consortium of cross-industry players working on best practices for the upcoming convergence of vehicles and computers has issued an open invitation to the upcoming Mobile World Live webinar,”Seizing the opportunities of Connected Vehicle ServicesThe event will take place on Wednesday, June 22 at 11 a.m. Eastern. There is no cost to join, but advanced registration Is required.

By 2025, all new vehicles will be connected, requiring high-speed internet, AI and big data analytics to deliver services such as HD maps, intelligent driving and more. The potential economic impact of this shift is huge, as are the opportunities for MNOs. However, the current network is not optimized to support the data needs of the connected vehicle service promise. The AECC is working to address this looming data challenge with proofs-of-concept (PoCs) designed to help meet the growing demand for data.

The AECC invites all interested parties to participate in the upcoming Mobile World Live webinar, “Seizing the Connected Vehicle Services Opportunity,” June 22 at 11 a.m. ET. Participants learn about:

  • The fast-growing market for connected vehicle services and the opportunities it offers.

  • How to meet the data needs needed to deliver on the promise of connected vehicle services.

  • The PoC capabilities that will enable companies to lead and shape the success of this evolving connected vehicle services industry.

Expert, renowned speakers will drive the webinar discussion:

  • Bruno Fernandez-Ruiz — AECC member, co-founder and CTO of Nexar (presenter)

  • Christer Boberg — AECC Secretary, Director of Ericsson Group Strategy (presenter)

  • Martha De Grasse — US Contributing Editor, Mobile World Live (moderator)

  • Roger Berg — AECC Communications Vice Chair, Vice President of DENSO’s North American Research and Development Group (presenter)

  • Tim Hatt — Head of Research at GSMA Intelligence (Opening Comments)

About AECC Proofs of Concept

The AECC is committed to advancing global network architectures and computing infrastructure to help meet the data transfer requirements of the growing connected car ecosystem. The Proof of Concept (PoC) committee is focused on developing technology demonstrations to demonstrate how AECC solutions can be implemented and used in real-world environments to help meet these growing data management needs.

AECC PoCs are the visible display of the work taking place within the AECC community. They demonstrate the capabilities of AECC and members and demonstrate the utility of AECC’s research and approach. Creating PoCs requires input from our working groups, who develop use cases and potential technical solutions to effectively meet use case requirements. The solutions, or parts of them, come from a number of different players within the AECC community, including MNOs, network equipment suppliers, data storage equipment teams, and others. Demonstrations of the technological approaches to show the real-world application of AECC solutions are then developed in the group.

About the AECC

The Automotive Edge Computing Consortium (AECC) is an association of cross-industry, global leaders working to explore the rapidly evolving and important data and communications needs involved in instrumenting billions of vehicles worldwide. The goal of the AECC is to find more efficient ways to support distributed computing and infrastructure network architectures to support the large amounts of data required for intelligent vehicle services. The members of the AECC are key players in the automotive, high-speed mobile networks, edge computing, wireless technology, distributed computing and artificial intelligence markets.
