Panel will discuss how OEMs are driving vehicle safety forward in a highly connected world and the broader implications for other industries, such as roadside assistance
LOS ANGELES, June 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- HONK Technologies, the industry-leading digital roadside assistance and vehicle transport platform company, announced that CRO Rochelle Thielen will speak at AutoTech: Detroit as part of a panel discussion, "Driving vehicle safety forward to meet the demands of a connected world." Thielen will join Alex Shoeneberger, director of safety and security product management at SiriusXM Connected Vehicle, and Alex Oyler, director for North America, SBD Automotive.
- What: Panel discussion on connected cars and safety
- Where: AutoTech: Detroit
- When: June 8, 2022 at 11:45 EST
- Why: Understand how OEMs are implementing new safety technologies into connected cars, the kinds of technologies they are leveraging and the implications for other industries, such as roadside assistance
"Vehicles have never been safer for motorists, thanks to the innovative, connected technologies that OEMs are implementing in modern cars and trucks," Thielen said. "But these technologies have enormous implications for roadside assistance. Accidents that were once minor fender-benders can damage critical sensors, compromising safety systems and rendering it unsafe to drive. In fact, some models of new vehicles don't even have traditional handles on the doors, which poses challenges for assisting with a lock-out situation. The roadside assistance industry will need to make significant adjustments to their skills and capabilities in this new era."
