Session Abstract: Let’s focus on the interior features within the new reality of Level 5 Autonomous Vehicles: ALL occupants are now passengers. Connectivity, comfort and a tailored ride experience will dictate which vehicle manufacturers and rideshare services rise to the top. Once all of the passenger mobile devices are precisely located Evvy enables seat adjustments, temperature settings, window shade settings, etc., according to the passenger’s preference profile. If this passenger had a premium vehicle WIFI subscription, for example, Evvy could automatically connect him to the vehicle wifi, leapfrogging the password entry step. With the appropriate 3rd party support, Evvy could prioritize bandwidth settings, infotainment access, by passenger/seat location in the vehicle. This customizable ‘pathway’ to passengers based on their location in the vehicle enables the same e-commerce, targeted advertising, curated content delivery capabilities Motion Intelligence is working to deliver in vehicles today. From a security standpoint, Evvy can collect ‘blindfold’ passenger identification information who are participating in the ride but did not order the rideshare service including the duration of time a passenger spends in the car by identifying at what point his device exited the vehicle, and if it moved to any other seats within the vehicle. Once the rideshare transport ends with no Emergency incidents the ‘blindfold’ passenger identification information would be deleted. Evvy can detect unauthorized or “unscheduled” devices that enter the vehicle and report them to a 3rd party. If passengers opt-in ahead of time for the ‘enhanced rideshare experience’ Evvy would be allowed to market a few customized or tailored advertisements to the passenger’s mobile device (based on the passenger’s enhanced passenger service profile) in exchange for a gift certificate or discount coupon delivered to the driver’s mobile device for products and services available within a certain time period located in and around the dropoff destination. Speakers: CJ Meurell – Co-Founder at Motion Intelligence Sue Spradley – CEO at Motion Intelligence CJ is co-founder of Motion Intelligence, responsible for global strategy and business development. Over the past two years, he has led Motion Intelligence from developing software to prevent drivers from being distracted by their mobile devices to a software technology platform which detects, identifies and precisely locates all smart mobile devices inside a vehicle. Once the smart mobile devices are located, use cases are enabled which focus on driver safety, vehicle ‘branded’ passenger experiences and car-ride-share passenger e-commerce opportunities. Previous to Motion Intelligence, CJ led a global sales and business development team focused on C-level engagements with network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) and network integrators for Viavi Solutions. His team created market opportunities, by integrating Viavi service enablement technology with Viavi’s global partner’s technology, products, and solutions. This unique technology integration creates new and enhances existing, “edge to core” service enablement solutions, allowing our global partners to monetize the network for their customers, at the same time, profitably grow their managed services and solutions portfolios. CJ’s international experience includes ex-pat assignments in China and Europe, leading multifunctional teams while defining and executing a profitable business strategy...Read More

Session Abstract: Smart Buildings and the IoT sector in general rely on the one hand on a robust connectivity and on the other hand on a standardized platform layer to enable the services they wish to provide. Why there is a need to digitize the buildings and their assets? One of the main challenges within the Facility Management industry is a lack of use-case-comprehensive and standardized TC/IT platform services, to tackle the existing hurdles. Only one example is to get a transparency about the “real” utilization regarding the office spaces. With the end-to-end service, starting from minimally invasive IoT sensors...Read More
