#ThinkDigital just published an interview with Joost Vantomme, Smart Mobility Director, ACEA, who expressed his views on the role for data and privacy regulation and the cooperation between the telco and automotive industries.
Mr. Vantomme highlights that we need connectivity and, in order to have a good deployment of these things in the future, we need a very low latency. Mr. Vantomme points that ACEA counts on the ETNO members that they provide them with a very ubiquitous network, not only in the urban areas, as the 5G – Gigabit plan is promoting, but also along the highways and along the remote areas. And so, Mr. Vantomme underlines that we need a seamless, cross-border coverage, and that is something we would have to work on, jointly, with both our industries.
At the Mobile World Congress 2017, cutting-edge prototypes and demonstrators from Graphene Flagship Partners and Associate Members made a fantastic showcase demonstrating what graphene can do in areas such as IoT and sensors, wearables and health, composites and production, datacom and energy.
