What we're about

Northern California has emerged as a hotbed for automotive activity: enthusiasts and practitioners, hobbyists and seasoned industry veterans from both near and far, with all levels of experience, are invited to collaborate on the future of vehicles, transportation, and mobility, and to reflect on the societal and infrastructure implications of intelligent transportation systems. All subjects are of interest: autonomy and self-driving vehicles, safety, fuel-efficiency, innovative enabling applications, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), connected car, CANBus, OBD2, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) along with all sorts of vehicles and vehicle aggregates: fleet vehicles, trucks, farming equipment, heavy machinery, marine and aviation applications. Although open source is in our Meetup name anyone involved in business, policy or regulatory aspects of transportation are heartily invited too. Regardless of which community you belong to (OEM, Tier 1, car company, engineer, car hobbyist, IP attorney...) -- please join!
