Member Spotlight - Interview with Muriel Desaeger, Toyota
I see my role as striving to bring the best of Europe into the AECC. As we know, the AECC is a global organization with several industry players representing businesses from all major regions. Being based in Belgium, I look for ways to include the European outlook. It’s important for the connected car industry to address requirements that are relevant to all stakeholders in Europe. Everyone has their own interests and requirements in addition to wanting the industry to succeed globally.

Member Spotlight – Interview with Christer Boberg, Ericsson
Early 2017, representatives from Ericsson, Toyota and a few other founding companies informally met during the Barcelona Mobile World Congress. Toyota expressed a need for a global community to develop a technical framework on handling the high-volume data spawned by connected cars in the future. From Ericsson’s perspective, our entire business is about connectivity, so we were keenly interested. In our experience, it's very important that the use cases for a new emerging business have adequate support by the networks. We see a unique opportunity for AECC members – such as Toyota being one of the largest vehicle manufacturers, and other industry stakeholders – be the ones forming the next-generation communication systems for connected vehicles. Ericsson’s collaboration with AECC will specifically support the mobile network operators and help them to understand how they should configure and deploy their networks to support use cases for connected cars and other vehicles.

I'm leading a team of people who are looking at the future of connected and automated transport systems. We’re considering all the various components needed for connected transportation systems - -- not just for the vehicle, but what they connect to, the roadways, smart cities and the broader communications and computing infrastructure.
