GOTO Amsterdam (June 13-15, 2016) is a vendor independent international software development conference with more than 60 top speakers and 800 attendees. The conference covers topics such as Microservices, Rugged, JavaScript, Post-Agile, Data, Spring++, Connected Worlds & Philosophy.

Presentation: "Aftermarket Connected Car: Simplifying Telematics for the Consumer Market"

Track: Connected Worlds / Time: Wednesday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Effectenbeurszaal

The "Connected Car" can be called a specialized rendering of the Internet of Things. A modern vehicle itself is already a network of electronic sensors and actors. By adding an uplink to a telematics service platform a more universal access to car data and functionality becomes possible – with all the benefits and challenges.

The focus will be on a high level overview of the TomTom Aftermarket Connected Car proposition and how it is different from and complementary to many OEM connected car programs. There will be some highlights on the most important changes in technology and architecture as TomTom Telematics moves from B2B fleet management functionality to a general telematics service platform.
