How to Protect Connected Vehicles within the IoT?

Format: Presentation with Q&A
Speaker: Karl Heimer Senior Research Director of Battelle’s Cyber Innovation Unit

This talk focuses on describing why the risk exists both from technical (why are cars vulnerable) and societal (why would a hacker want to target a car) perspectives. It also describes the historical growth curve of malware and the consequential critical need to address core Cyber Security issues well before the point of exponential attack growth. There is a short discussion of automotive engineering lead times (they cycle-plan issue) and how this increases the urgency of both developing and deploying a mitigating and preventative on-car systems.

Cars Are Connected, Where Are The Applications?

Format: Panel
Moderator: Egil Juliussen, IHS Automotive
  • Yuriy Shvalik, Program Manager at Luxoft
  • Leon Hong, CTO at Airbiquity
  • Chris Ruff, CEO at UIEvolution
  • Matt Jones, Technical Lead for Next Generation Infotainment at Jaguar Land Rover

In most countries, drivers and passengers carry their digital lives into their vehicles by carrying in their personal phones or devices. Increasingly more applications can now share the device screen with the car, but automotive applications are still missing.

Connected Car — Big Opportunity Or Headache?

Format: Panel
Moderator: Roger Lanctot, Strategy Analytics
  • Upton Bowden, VP Marketing at Visteon
  • Georg Doll, VP/GM Automotive at Wind River
  • Roberto Zompi, Business Development at Magnetti Marelli
  • Rudi Streif, Director of Embedded Solutions at Linux Foundation

Will IoT open up big opportunities for those companies traditionally not focused on automotive to now enter that market segment? With the increasing level of technology coming into the vehicle, what new government regulations and requirements can we expect? Will the opportunity for economic gain and market share outweigh the headaches required to be one of the first innovators/enablers of this technology?

  • Ian Beavis, EVP Nielsen Global Automotive Group
  • Walter Buga, CEO Arynga
  • Kyle Walworth, VP Solutions and Strategy Symphony Teleca
  • Theo-Han Jansen, Director European Market Development, Verizon Telematics

With the adoption of IoT within the connected vehicle, can necessary components and services like embedded software, cloud services, data analysis, logistics, security, asset tracking, sensors, silicon, etc. become monetized? Who stands to gain the most in the ecosystem?
