BVRLA calls for fleets to give views on vehicle developments ahead of Technology Congress

The Fleet Technology survey covers topics including attitudes towards telematics, safety technology and autonomous driving.

 Respondents will be entered in to a prize draw to win an Apple Watch Sport, and the results of the survey will be published at the association’s Fleet Technology Congress on 1 July 2015.

Taking place at the Williams F1 Conference Centre in Grove, Oxfordshire, the Congress is sponsored by Jaguar Land Rover and Trak Global. It will explore the latest developments in connectivity and autonomous technology, and tackle the big issues, identifying the main challenges and opportunities for vehicle rental and leasing companies and their customers. 

Commenting on the upcoming Congress, BVRLA chief executive Gerry Keaney said: “The automotive environment is set to be transformed by technology over the next few years. The knowledge, expertise and buying power of the fleet industry means that it will be at the heart of that revolution. The Fleet Technology Congress will provide attendees with a fantastic opportunity to network, discuss and gather insight on a wide range of new trends and business models impacting the vehicle rental and leasing sector.” 

“The results of the Fleet Technology Survey will follow on from the excellent work started last year and gather the views of the fleet industry on a number of new automotive technologies and their potential impact on the wider industry.“ 

This year’s event will include sessions on:

  • Jaguar Land Rover’s perspective on connected cars and fleet technology
  • Current trends and future potential for autonomous safety technology
  • The impact of telematics on fleet insurance
  • How telematics and apps are changing the way vehicles are driven and managed
  • Connectivity and mobile data challenges
  • Your rights and responsibilities in dealing with driver and vehicle data
  • What new mobility business models are emerging 

Further speakers will be announced in due course. Over 130 delegates from more than 70 companies attended the 2014 event.
