Newsbyte: SAP Furthers Connected Car Vision By Embracing EV Readiness And Ride-Sharing Applications

LEIPZIG, Germany, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  SAP NEWSBYTE -- As part of its commitment to making the world run better, SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) solidified its commitment to connected car programs during the Silicon Valley: Driving Charged and Connected symposium last week. During the event, which was hosted and sponsored by SAP, the company announced new programs, initiatives and a student contest designed to advance its vision of the connected car. Continuing its momentum, SAP is hosting the 13 th annual SAP Automotive Forum, being held June 12-13 in Leipzig, Germany.


SAP announced the winners of its Global Connected Car Contest, where participants from around the world were asked to submit ideas in the categories of traffic, the environment, fueling, public transport and parking. Last week winners converged in Silicon Valley to meet with engineering and IT experts, as well as executives from SAP and leading car manufacturers to further develop their ideas. Winning projects include programs to optimize parking lot and street parking, as well as more intuitive navigation applications that take into account public transportation, taxis and stops that drivers need to make along the way.

Additionally, SAP was named one of the most EV-ready businesses in the Bay Area by the  Bay Area Climate Collaborative (BACC) and Silicon Valley Leadership Group. To affirm this ranking, SAP went live with one of the few wireless charging stations in the Bay Area this week. SAP also continued to promote the TwoGo by SAP ® initiative, which includes a ride sharing mobile app that allows businesses to facilitate carpooling among employees.

"We believe connected cars must provide a delightful experience for drivers, business opportunities across multiple industries and a more sustainable means of transportation," said Peter Graf, chief sustainability officer, SAP. "These three things are interdependent and the car acts essentially as people's wallets. With our technology expertise and experience making disparate business processes seamless, SAP is well positioned to drive this vision forward."
