RTI Announces Seventh ConnextCon 2021: Preparing for an Autonomous Future

Virtual ConnextCon 2021 to Showcase Real-World Customer Use Cases Featuring European Space Agency (ESA), Schilling Robotics, Li Auto, DocBox, and More

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Oct. 5, 2021 – Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the largest software framework company for autonomous systems, today announced its seventh annual Virtual ConnextCon 2021 to be held on October 19 – 20 for the EMEA and APAC regions and October 26 27 for the US and Americas regions. ConnextCon 2021 is the world’s largest gathering of RTI customers, software architects, and developers of autonomous systems. The two-day virtual event will feature hands-on workshops, real-world use cases, market insights from RTI executives, expert technical guidance, and customers discussing implementations of RTI Connext® with interactive demos.

ConnextCon 2021 will explore how companies can prepare for a fully autonomous future, including how to address challenges ranging from connectivity and mobility to security and safety certification. This year’s events will provide insight needed to best navigate the path to fully autonomous systems, from development to production, while the window of market opportunity is still wide open. As the largest software framework provider for autonomous systems, RTI and its customers are at the forefront of autonomy – leading the way with real-world systems in autonomous vehicles, aerospace & defense, medical, transportation, energy, industrial automation, and more. Attendees will hear from users building these real-world autonomous systems, and exchange ideas, questions and answers in real time.

Featured ConnextCon 2021 speakers include: 

  • October 19-20, 2021 (EMEA/APAC):
