MIT Leading-Edge Tech Shows at COM.* 2014 Conference

Washington, DC – July 14, 2014 COM.* 2014 conference will take MIT Leading-Edge Tech Shows during the conference, which will be held on August 4-6, Washington DC, USA. The shows include two shows, one is "The Intelligent Co-Pilot: a Path toward Fully Autonomous Vehicles"; another is "The Future with Self-Driving Cars".

Show 1: The Intelligent Co-Pilot: a Path toward Fully Autonomous Vehicles:

This tech show demonstrates the "Intelligent Co-Pilot," a practical, near-term pathway to autonomous vehicle development. In this framework, the human driver and the autonomous control system share control authority, with the autonomous system generally only assuming control when the threat of an accident is significant. The system could also be tuned, however, to provide a greater degree of assistance. Such a system represents an attempt to reap the safety benefits of full autonomy, while ensuring that the operator remains attentive and responsible for high level decisions.

Show 2: The Future with Self-Driving Cars

This work demonstrates work at SMART, the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology, focused on development and testing of a new mobility-on-demand paradigm. This work, led by Professor Emilio Frazzoli of MIT, consists of a fleet of fully autonomous vehicles that can be summoned via smartphone by users to take them to a desired destination. The vehicles respond rapidly due to state-of-the-art backend software that positions the vehicles based on analysis of historical demand data. Analysis of transport data by the SMART researchers have shown that all of Singapore could be effectively served by such a mobility-on-demand paradigm, even while substantially reducing the overall number of vehicles on the road.

About COM.* Conference

COM.* 2014 has expanded to three more emerging tech areas, Big Data, driverless cars, and geospatial computing. COM.Geo has been playing a guiding role to advancing the technologies in computing for geospatial research and application since it was initiated 5 years ago.

This year, COM.* conferences and summits will focus on COM.BigData 2014, COM.DriverelessCar 2014, and COM.Geo 2014. All three will take place in the same time frame and conference center in August in Washington DC, USA as well as COM.* online Virtual Conference center.

Several leading keynotes and insightful panels from U.S. federal government and world-class industries and universities will be open to all the attendees of the three conferences and summits. There will be a great opportunity for everyone to learn trends, share visions, exchange ideas, discuss details, and expand networking circles.
