But now, as innovative mobility services and other advanced transportation technologies upend mobility as we know it, the automotive industry has had to respond in an even bolder fashion. Established companies are collaborating with each other and new entrants to the space in ways previously unseen, and these collaborations go far beyond just the automobile.

Join CAR and OESA at the HPE campus in San Jose to hear from auto industry experts, community leaders, and start-up companies as they discuss how they are working together to build the future of the mobility and automotive industry.

Manufacturing – Going to Market, Two part Panel/Q&A

Moving from technology readiness level (TRL) 5 or 6 to proof of concept and securing business with an automotive manufacturer remains a challenge to many startup companies looking for success. The challenge of differing clock speeds between automakers and technology companies make industry startup partnerships difficult, and yet both agree that working together is essential to move through the massive technology shift underway within the industry. This session will explore how this process has played out for manufacturers and startups alike.
