AAPEX tech forum to cover all bases

A Technology and Telematics Forum has been added to the AAPEX calendar this fall.

The forum will spotlight cybersecurity, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication, vehicle data and OE technology. It will be presented by the Auto Alliance and the Congress of Automotive Repair and Service – sponsored by the Automotive Service Association. Professionals from other automotive aftermarket segments will also take part. It will be held Nov. 2 from 9 a.m. to noon at The Venetian, in Las Vegas.

It will discuss how attendees can protect their businesses, customers, employees and life from cyberattacks. Dr. Anuja Sonalker, founder of STEER Tech and cybersecurity expert, and with Donny Seyfer, co-owner of Seyfer Automotive, will provide information on cybersecurity and how to avoid being a victim.

Bob Redding, the ASA’s Washington, D.C. representative, will lead a panel discussion on what’s coming to V2V and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) communication.

Bill Long, president, Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA), and Aaron Solomon, CEO and owner, Mobile Devices Ingenierie, France, will address vehicle data, including who owns the data, who gets it and how auto repair professionals can use it. Seyfer will lead this discussion with a focus on the responsibilities and challenges of logging and sifting through the data of vehicles producing a terabyte or more of data per day.
