McLaren Automotive Showcases Latest High-Performance Vehicle at AAMA
Connect Series for Entrepreneurs and Investors on March 14, 2013 
SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/12/13 --  The vehicle of the
future is the focus of the upcoming conference hosted by The Asia
America MultiTechnology Association (AAMASV) being held on Thursday,
March 14, 2013 at Silicon Valley Bank, 3005 Tasman Drive, Santa
Clara, CA. Just as we are connected to our home, work phone, and
friends through a complex maze of networks, the vehicle is emerging
as the next spoke on the network.  
The conference investigates developments in wireless access,
software, location-based applications and sensors that will transform
the vehicle into the new "device" for connected services to link the
consumer, dealer and manufacturer. Futuristic and complex systems of
sensors, robotics and communication networks can dramatically enhance
safety and enable cars to be "self-driven." 
"Some of the most innovative companies, from early stage start-ups in
the Silicon Valley to the largest automakers around the globe, are
developing technologies and businesses that will revolutionize not
only the automotive industry but also how the digital driving
experience will transform our connected society. AAMA is very excited
to bring together thought leaders of this important trend in our
Connect Series," said Canice Wu, 2013 AAMA co-president, President,
Plug and Play Tech Center.
