The 19th Autotronics Taipei highlighted innovations in automobile electronic products and components, underscoring the rapid advancements in automobile electronics.

James Huang, chairman of TAITRA, opened the event with enthusiasm.

“The car as we know it today will become a smart, self-driving space that does more than just getting us from point A to B. But we’re not only talking about cars that can take us further. We’re saying that the way we move is about to get a whole lot more interesting,” Huang said. “We’re entering a new world of three-sixty (360) degree Mobility, thanks to innovations in areas like AI and low-Earth orbit satellites.”

“Let’s take a look at what’s changing and how. First off, AI is completely changing the game for cars, turning them into spaces for work and recreation,” Huang said. “Next up, sustainability. It’s the word on everyone’s lips, pushing everyone to think green from the ground up: materials, operations, supply chains, you name it. Then there is safety: the most important thing. We’re seeing all new technologies in monitoring systems and autonomous driving, making our roads safer. And let’s not forget about partnerships. From car makers to tech giants and telecom companies, it’s all about joining forces to create something new and exciting.”

“That’s why we’re all here at 2035 E-Mobility Taiwan, Taipei AMPA and AutoTronics Taipei,” he said. “As we embark on this journey to 360-degree mobility, we’re not only looking ahead, we’re also reimagining mobility for a smarter, greener future.”
