Group Organizer
Mountain View, CA
1. Tiago Forte of faberNovel and PARISOMA will be speak about "Self-Driving Carsharing and Smart Mobility"

Friday night Toyota Innovation Hub hosted by Institute for Creative Integration will be sponsoring an event at their North Beach facility.   Thanks to these companies for their support.

Please note that the facility has only 30 chairs.    We will have quite light refreshments, not including sandwiches.   Consider having dinner in SF afterwards if it suits you.

The location is hard to access by transit and is a long drive from South Bay.    Please, let's organize carpools.     I put up a publicly editable spreadsheet to facilitate organization:­

I am *not* going to maintain this spreadsheet or help rides find each other.  If you are no longer interested in attending given the constraints, please vacate your reservation so that someone else may use it.

2. Prof. Balaji Prabhakar of Stanford will present 'Designing Large-scale "Nudge" Engines to Optimize Transportation' on 9/26 at Hacker Dojo in Mountain View in another event generously underwritten by ICS (Peter Mui and Roland Krause):­

Thanks to Vas Bhandarkar of Caralta for arranging the event.

3. GENIVI (leading automotive software consortium) news:

-- GENIVI public newsletter:­

-- Open Automotive '13 at the All Members Meeting (October 8-11)

At this fall’s All Members Meeting in San Diego, GENIVI will be featuring a new program called Open Automotive '13. This one-day conference, hosted by GENIVI and open to all, will explore -- with carmakers, leading suppliers, automotive consortia and industry analysts -- the ways that tomorrow's IVI can interact and interoperate in truly open systems, whether those systems are built on traditional proprietary models or, like GENIVI, use an open source development methodology.

4. Upcoming free webinar: "Improving Telematics Reliability in Marginal Reception Areas"

The August Automotive Grade Linux webinar is titled "Improving Telematics Reliability in Marginal Reception Areas" and will take place on August 21st.  You can learn more about the August webinar and register for it now on the automotive website:

Upcoming Webinar: Improving Telematics Reliability in Marginal Reception Areas
Magnus Feuer, CTO at Feuerlabs

Abstract: A telematics device worth its salt must be able to switch back and forth between multiple communication paths depending on network availability as the vehicle moves in and out of coverage. In this presentation, we will show how the Exosense Device stack can be used in telematics applications to monitor network availability and make intelligent decisions on how to best multi path data through WiFi, 3G and SMS, thus providing a robust and resilient service for operators and customers.
