Top 5 Reasons to Attend the Silicon Valley Connext Conference


RTI’s second annual Silicon Valley Connext Conference is right around the corner and I could not be more excited about it! Just in case you haven’t registered to attend yet, here are the top 5 reasons why you should:

  1. Learn how some of the industry’s most exciting companies are using DDS:
    • Auris Health -- CTO Steve Burion will be presenting how the Monarch Platform, the first robotic platform designed to diagnose and eventually treat lung cancer, is using multiple Connext DDS features to enable real-time communication across applications.
    • Apex.AI -- CTO Dejan Pangercic will discuss why ROS 2 (with DDS) is the right framework to choose when building an autonomous vehicle application.
    • AUTOSAR -- Chairman Rick Flores will go over how AUTOSAR and RTI recently partnered on the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform to include the DDS standard as a communication binding.
    • Plus presentations from QNX, TechnipFMC and more!
  2. Learn About the Latest Connext DDS Updates from RTI technical experts! RTI’s own Principal Engineer, Fernando Crespo, will give a technical deep dive into the upcoming features of our next product release. Also CTO, Gerardo Pardo-Castellote will present his technical vision on how DDS is connecting autonomous systems across the IIoT.
  3. DEMOS, DEMOS and more DEMOS. You’ll see a demo on how to “Jump Start Your Autonomous Vehicle with ROS Tools and Connext DDS” using actual code and freely available packages. We’ll have a presentation from the RTI Research team covering architectural solutions for the operational monitoring of distributed systems including time-series database, monitoring agent and visualization. There will also be featured demos from several of our partners including Mocana and MathWorks.
  4. Meet our Advisory Board! The RTI Advisory Board combines top visionaries and business experts from across the IIoT -- Scott McNealy, KT Neumann, Raiford Smith and Thomas Baptiste. We’ll hold an interactive panel discussion on what to expect as the IIoT becomes reality. Our advisors will also answer questions from the audience so come prepared!
  5. Last but not least, we want to hear from you! The Connext Conference is a two-way street. At RTI we love every opportunity to talk to our customers face-to-face. It’s a chance to learn about your use cases and how you apply Connext DDS to solve system challenges. We also appreciate all of your feedback on how we can continue to advance our technology and provide the only connectivity software for the IIoT.

We can’t wait to see you there!
