Attendees at this year’s AAPEX (Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo), taking place Nov. 5-7 in Las Vegas, will have the opportunity to see how the auto care industry is staying competitive in the age of advanced vehicle technologies. The Auto Care Association’s Emerging Technologies Booth at AAPEX will present the latest solutions for standardization of the maintenance and repair of automated systems.
The Emerging Technologies Booth will feature three informational kiosks highlighting vehicle technology progression, what the latest technological developments mean for the consumer and what the aftermarket industry is doing about it today. The Auto Care Association, in partnership with Q-Free, Concepts & Services Consulting (CSC), Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), OnBoard Security and Coolfire Solutions, will provide a wide range of information on the technologies, including: Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS); Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs); V2X; Automotive Embedded Systems and the Secure Vehicle Interface (SVI) through video demonstrations; live presentations; discussions; and more. Implementations of recently approved international standards that were sponsored by the association will be demonstrated, showing that direct, local access to vehicle data can be secure, safe and authorized by vehicle owners.
