Fleet Technology Congress 2017
Taking place at the Williams F1 Conference Centre in Grove, Oxfordshire, the 2017 Fleet Technology Congress will explore the latest developments in connectivity and autonomous technology.
The automotive industry is facing an unprecedented period of change as it experiences a revolution in the way vehicles are powered, operated and used. A new range of connected and increasingly autonomous vehicles will make transport smarter, safer and more efficient than ever. The data these vehicles generate is enabling an exciting range of new mobility services.
At the same time, vehicle use is changing as society adjusts to the challenges of congestion, air quality and the advent of the sharing economy. More and more people are choosing to use rather than own their transport. The vehicle rental and leasing industry is ideally placed to meet these needs, but faces competition from a host of digital disruptors who see connected cars as the biggest business opportunity since the smartphone.
