Keynote – Technology & Policy Perspective in Automotive Connectivity
Tomorrow’s car will represent a step change in form and function, compared with what’s being offered now. Although many commentators have described this future in terms of the autonomous vehicle, that’s just a part of the change to come. The vehicle of the future is already taking shape in a variety of forms, although it is unlikely to reach full fruition on public streets and highways for 10 to 20 years. Nonetheless, there will be enough innovation before then to transform the automobile. There will be new levels of connectivity among vehicles, enabling new services inside and outside the car. There will be new kinds of cars, many dedicated to specific uses, such as ride-hailing and ride-sharing fleets. The culture of the automobile, including conventional wisdom about how vehicles should be owned and driven, will also change. Already, the very notion of what a car is for is being radically rethought.

Digital Vehicle & Impact of Connectivity
Many of the normal features of the car — monitors of performance data like speed, fuel efficiency, and gas tank levels; heating and air conditioning; and the audio system — all have been digitized in hopes of providing the driver with easier operation and better information. And the car — including smartphones and other devices carried on-board by drivers and passengers — now reaches out to the surrounding world for music streamed from the cloud, real-time traffic information, and personalized roadside assistance. Recent innovations allow automobiles to monitor and adjust their position on the highway, alerting drivers if they are drifting out of their lane, and slowing down if they get too close to the car in front of them. All in all, the car of today is a technological marvel. And there’s much more to come.

New Mobility Business Models & The Impact on The Indian Automotive Industry.
The relationship between business and sustainability has become one of the central debates for the long-term future of human health and happiness, both in those countries that have already experienced industrialization and in those that are undergoing the trans-formative impact of the process. It is already apparent that in certain critical respects the prevailing business models may be inappropriate and inadequate to meeting the challenge of sustainability.

Kaushik comes with an in depth understanding of the growing passenger and commercial vehicle business sectors and on the growing aftermarket opportunities for OEMs in India and the Middle East.
Hardware in The Loop Test System For Next Generation Automobiles.
Vehicle engines today are extremely complex because of their many subsystems, each with a controller to manage fuel injection, emissions, engine noise, and more. This complexity makes the job challenging for engineers with short development cycles and pressure to limit costs. Using HIL simulation, you can replicate specific parts of the embedded system and test them in a virtual environment before running real-world diagnostics on the complete system.

He has a Master’s Degree in Physics and Electronics and is a member of various international engineering forums and societies.
Connected EV Eco-System & Infrastructure Challenges in India
Electric vehicles (EVs) are no longer science fiction. Scientific achievements in this space have led to the mainstreaming of EVs in the United States, Israel and some European countries. India isn’t far behind either with Mahindra-Reva, Hero Electric and other domestic OEMs leading the front. Durable lithium ion batteries, fast charging networks, efficient chassis design and electric drive trains are key links in the EV value chain and extensive technological progress has been made in all these areas. However, for EVs to truly lead GhG reduction in Indian Industry and have a positive impact on the country’s energy security, the integration of smart grids and renewable energy feeds into these grids are a must. In fact, without these two critical components, the introduction of EVs into the current ecosystem would be an ecological burden and lead to greater GhG emissions since energy will be derived from a predominantly coal powered and inefficient energy grid.
Dr. Allabaksh Naikodi,with over 32 years of experience is presently heading the Advance Technology (R&D Electrical Engineering) of Mahindra Electric Vehicle Company. He obtained Ph. D degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (Chennai), India in 1995.

What is The Relevant Ecosystem to Bring Expected Value Added From Telematics in India?
As the number of applications grows, a strong ecosystem is forming around the connected car, involving a range of participants—among them automakers, insurance companies, telecommunications firms, sensor and chip manufacturers, and digital-platform giants like Amazon and Uber, as well as academic institutions and standards-making bodies. The rise of this ecosystem is changing the competitive landscape for all participants, especially for companies in the insurance industry. Insurers face digital disruption in a number of areas. Their analytics capabilities, for instance, may be displaced by predictive-modeling or machine-learning technologies. And their traditional data sets, which contain risk profiles based on claims history, may be losing value given the growing availability of real-time data streaming from connected cars.

Enhancing Connected Customers Experience – Never Stranded Never Surprised
Today, the gap between customers’ expectations and the service they receive is huge. Customers expect personalized, competent service, and they want to be able to connect with a company at any time, in person or virtually, over any communication channel they want to use.

Cyber Security in Connected Vehicles & Transportation
Automobiles’ dramatic increase in connectivity to the Internet provides many more entry points to the vehicle’s electronic systems for attackers to exploit. Cars now have more connectivity than most personal computers. This is an important step. But it will be years before the first robust, efficient, hardened automotive system architecture rolls off the assembly line. The scale, model-line and geographical diversity of today’s fleet and the need for international standards create huge challenges. What’s needed in the meantime is a system to detect anomalies that can be integrated quickly into automobiles to provide a defense. This technology must be universal, and platform-agnostic. It must be able to defend against threats to any onboard ECU or computer system. And it must be able to identify new threats without constant updates, which means that it should not be the signature-based threat-detection systems we are all familiar with in our laptops.

Role of Data in The Entire Connected Car Paradigm
The car of the future will be safer, more autonomous, better adapted to new uses and ways of getting around. But if, by some miracle, the car of 2025 could be manufactured today, it might be hard to sell. Because consumers just are not yet ready for what manufacturers have in store for them. That’s why current innovations are all focused on the same goal: to gradually bring drivers to the point where they can get behind the wheel of the car of the future with total confidence.

The City of Tomorrow
The future could hold a significant concentration of autonomous electric vehicles in cities that will result in the elimination of mass amounts of parking and traffic congestion, along with reducing major city’s environmental footprints. This along with the potential impact of drones, high-speed mass transits, and many other innovations could change the way an entire city’s infrastructure operates. Someday soon, the City of Tomorrow might not just be a vision, but a reality.
