NACE | CARS has released the complete agenda for the third annual Technology & Telematics Forum (TTF), taking place Friday, Aug. 12th, in Anaheim, Calif. Sponsored by Auto Alliance, CCC Information Services, Ratchet + Wrench, FenderBender and the Automotive Service Association, TTF affords an excellent opportunity to meet OE engineers and learn about technologies that will soon be in automotive service and repair shops.
The Technology & Telematics Forum is a half-day event, including a private breakfast at 8 a.m. and a private strolling lunch with an opportunity to participate in the industry’s first and only Toyota Mirai Ride Along at 11:30 a.m.
At this year’s event, several of the world’s leading automakers will join experts in vehicle security, telematics technology, and diagnostics and repair to discuss how advanced technologies, connectivity and the Internet are changing modern automobiles.
Here are the agenda topics and speaker overviews:
