Leveraging the Great Convergence
(Session Code: ANN100)

Room AVL Technology Leadership Center/Grand Riverview Ballroom B  9:30 a.m.

The “great convergence” of global CO 2 and emissions mandates is driving powertrain technology solutions worldwide. Similarly, the impact of driver distraction, V2X and smart phones is influencing advances in active safety and connectivity solutions. How are these forces shaping global automotive decisions? Expert panelists will discuss how the industry is leveraging the convergence of regulations to develop more common safety, powertrain, and connectivity solutions. The session will also address the potential opportunities and benefits that further alignment of fuel economy regulations, CO 2 mandates, driver distraction guidelines, and connectivity solutions could bring to the global industry.
