iSuppli is to host an automotive industry briefing on 19th May in Frankfurt, Germany. The event aims to shed light on the situation in the automotive industry, something that iSuppli coyly calls “challenging” and “a volatile situation”. The event is called The Road Ahead – Automotive Infotainment and Telematics Trends. I’m pleased to see that iSuppli have found reasons for optimism and have iSuppli analysts and executives examining various short-term and long-term recovery scenarios and their implications for technology development and system design.
