The NDS Association has started organizing an annual public conference in 2019. The event is open to everyone, with the goal to achieve more visibility and awareness for NDS by communicating the NDS strategy and the benefits of using NDS to the industry. And we love the opportunity to have discussions and get feedback from the automotive eco-system players.
But this year we were facing the challenges of organizing an event given the current COVID situation. So we invited NDS Association member companies in person to an event location in Frankfurt, Germany, and opened the event online for everyone. We had 15 representatives of NDS member companies in the room, more than 200 participants joined the event online.
To all attendees: Thank you!!
After the welcome by NDS Association Chairman Martin Schleicher, updates on the activities of the NDS Association on the business and technical level were shared.
Dr. Markus Kerper of the Volkswagen Group’s Car.Software organization spoke in his keynote about the benefits of using NDS. He also showed a video of the lane precise positioning and guidance feature that is available in the latest navigation systems across Volkswagen’s standard engine and electric vehicles as well as Seat and Skoda cars.
The Car.Software Org is committed to NDS and will plan future generations of the infotainment based on NDSDr. Markus Kerper, Volkswagen Group’s Car.Software Org at the 2nd NDS Public Conference
The four latest NDS Association members FCA, Huawei, INAVI, and TRI-AD presented themselves and their reasons for joining the NDS Association.
This was followed by Telenav, HERE Technologies, and TomTom, who presented NDS.Classic applications, map products, and success stories.
Definitely a highlight was the demonstration of the first NDS.Live implementation that was developed jointly by the NDS Association, HERE Technologies, Elektrobit, Joynext, Navinfo, and NNG.
Last but not least, NDS Association Product Manager Georg Horn shared an update on the future of NDS before the conference was summarized and closed by NDS Association Chairman Martin Schleicher.
