Group members, I have just returned from a long business trip, so just a quick bulletin this month.
0. Monday's meeting at Hacker Dojo with Victor Ng-Thow-Hing of Honda is almost full:
We will order the refreshments and close registration at noon tomorrow, 10/31, so please cancel your attendance before then if you are not coming.
1. December's event on "Next-Gen Car Radio Interfaces: Swell and Adori"
institutes our new $1 fee to support the SJSU Formula SAE team. I had tentatively lined up a third startup presenter about automotive media for the event who has not sent an abstract. If someone knows of another startup in a related field who would like to address the group, please speak up.
2. I will probably have to cancel January's event and put up a new one with a different speaker. Sorry for the uncertainty. I have several candidates in mind already. Stay tuned.
3. And don't forget February's "Tour of Caltrans Traffic Management Center plus Smart Corridor Presentation" in Oakland:

of these webinars is to gather feedback on the views before launching
analysis that will identify candidate interfaces for
standardization. The CVRIA team will present two or three
representative views per session. The session will also include a
short discussion about the interface analysis and candidate standards
process; and a brief discussion of the policy analysis results to
date. For more information on CVRIA, please visit:
