    14 January 2016

    On 14 January 2016, the European Automotive Forum (EAF) with the support of the European Commission organised its biannual conference on connectivity and its unique role in the automotive sector. FIA Region I President, Thierry Willemarck, participated in the panel discussion on connected mobility where he emphasised the clear disconnect between what is being tracked by vehicle manufacturers and what citizens are willing to accept when it comes to sharing car data.

    FIA Region I President, Thierry Willemarck, said: “Consumers must be at the heart of vehicle connectivity: they must be fully aware of the technology on board and well-informed about what data they share, with whom and for which purpose.”

    The panel also included representatives from the European Commission, Opel, CEDR, Bosch, Ericsson, and FEBIAC.
