TurkishWIN: Future of Mobility Circle
19 Kasım @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Imagine a car that uses its superpowers to see what’s ahead of the car in front, vehicles that drive and park themselves, be unlocked with digital keys and understand how you feel: this vision of the future already exists today thanks to Valeo’s innovative solutions.
Join us at our Future of Mobility Learning Circle hosted by fellow TurkishWINner Melike Özpınar, Product Manager at Valeo. She will be joined by the General Manager of Valeo Service Turkey, Erdem Çarıkçı.
We will learn about Valeo’s ultimate vision: a car that “knows” you with a human-machine interface that learns about drivers’ habits to anticipate your needs and suggests routes and personalized services.
