Time:  1:00pm - 2:00pm ET
Location: Online Webinar via GoToWebinar


The auto industry is in the midst of its most radical transformation since the introduction of the assembly line. Between electric and autonomous vehicles, mobility-as-a-service, and the fourth industrial revolution, we'll see more change in automotive over the next ten years than we have in the past hundred. Data sits at the centre of it all, inside the walls of smart factories and on the roads with connected vehicles.

But what's driving this explosion of automotive data, and what are automakers doing with it?

Mentor Works and Acerta invite you to join their upcoming webinar, where they'll discuss these trends and how they relate to the emergence of Automotive Intelligence. You'll also learn about specific government funding programs available to automakers, as well as how to scale manufacturing operations, increase productivity, train employees, and reach new export markets in the age of Industry 4.0.
