Connected and Automated Vehicle Meet-Up: AI for Mobility

February 19, 2020  │ Tel Aviv, Israel

Let’s Meet Up in Tel Aviv for the Latest in Automated and Connected Vehicles

SAE is partnering with Israel start-up, Spotam, to host a new series of quarterly meet-up events in Tel Aviv, Israel, that convene local industry experts to discuss the latest automated and connected vehicle technology topics and trends impacting the region.

Join us over the course of 2020 for these convenient half-day sessions that address cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and V2X communication. These events promote the accelerated advancement and development of next generation vehicles, their supporting technologies, and infrastructure through collaboration and conversations among attendees.

The first in the series of meet-ups convenes February 19 at Adelis Conference Center, (Ganai Yohoshua) Tel-Aviv, and focuses on artificial intelligence and its role in the connected vehicle ecosystem.

A Hotbed of Automotive Start-Ups

Connected and automated vehicle development is happening across the world, and one of the areas seeing the most advancement is Israel. Israel has built a development hotbed for automotive start-ups with 17 researchers per 1,000 employees in Israel. This is more than South Korea, Japan, the United States, or Germany. Four-and-a-half percent of the Israel GDP is invested in R&D which leads all countries aside from South Korea.  This has led to exponential growth in automotive development in the region, especially in the areas of cybersecurity and artificial intelligence. This provides an opportunity to engage with a workforce on the leading edge of technology and innovation.

SAE is the premier organization to provide engagement between automotive companies in Israel along with the rest of the industry on a global scale. This forum will provide the opportunity for these companies to interact and ensure there is consensus on vehicle development strategies, as well as facilitate discussions with thought leaders across the industry.
