Transportation Seminar: Connected Cars - Lifestyle Delivery

Speaker:     Dr. Sania Irwin, Head of Systems &; Applications, Chief Technology Office, Nokia Networks

Abstract: The world is quickly evolving into the “Connected Everything Society” – from intelligent cars to smart homes to health and wellness solutions. Amongst the various Internet of Things (IoT) verticals, automotive brings unique challenges by significantly increasing the number of high bandwidth high mobility connections. At the same time it opens up a realm of possibilities. We are in an unique position to leverage the deep knowledge of the wireless infrastructure and the applications it carries, with precision mapping and road traffic technologies, to create new experiences not otherwise possible. We have generated a suite of “Lifestyle Delivery” use cases which aim to make the world safer, greener, smoother, and more enjoyable. We look forward to sharing these ideas with you, and learning more about how you see the world changing.
