This year’s AAPEX Show will feature several programs spotlighting automotive technology, including the new Mobility Park, the new Technology Intersection, AAPEXedu sessions, Let’s Tech presentations, and a Service Professionals Summit.

Among the experts on hand during AAPEXedu sessions will be Joe Register, director of emerging technologies for the Auto Care Association, as well as Brian Daugherty, chief technology officer, Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association.

“One exciting opportunity on the horizon is vehicle-to-vehicle communications systems – also known as V2V systems,” said Daugherty. “The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has proposed that V2V safety warning systems be required on all new light vehicles. If that rulemaking is finalized, V2V will quickly become available in the aftermarket as well. These systems will require wiring, GPS and V2V antennas, Electronic Control Units, and display screens. Installing and maintaining these systems will become a rapidly growing business opportunity for aftermarket shops and repair facilities.”
