Autonomous Vehicle movement has been steadily gaining market momentum.  Sense technologies are playing an integral role enabling Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) features which are becoming the building blocks to Autonomous diving capabilities.  As sensors like Lidar, Radar, and Cameras become more cost effective, vehicle OEMS are offering more (ADAS) features to the market.  Driver assistance features is just the beginning, Vehicle OEMs have pledge  huge investments and triggered M&A activities centered around autonomous vehicle movement.  Clearly automotive electronics has shifted from the traditional real-time command and control functions that utilize an array of low cost resource limited Microcontrollers.  Now it is all about high-performance compute platforms that use heterogenous compute CPUs, GPUs, DSPs and ISPs to help fuse data from an array of sense elements such as radars, lidars, ultrasonics, and cameras. External sources vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure even satellites. 


The automotive workshop will explore this Autonomous Vehicles from different angles through a series of panel discussions:


  • 9:00am-9:10am Opening Remarks
  • 9:10am-10:00am Panel: Processing, CPUs & Analysis Aniket Saha - ARM, Wade Appelman - SensL, Boris Shulkin - Magna International
  • 10:00am-10:50am Panel: Machine Learning & Software Josh Hartung - Polysync Technologies, Dave Tokic - Algolux, Satish Jha - xCube Communications, Fabien Chraim - Civil Maps
  • 10:50am-11:00am Break and Networking
  • 11:00am-11:50am Panel: Sense Technologies Geoff Ballew - On Semi, Boris Shulkin - Magna International, Rourke Pattulo - University of Michigan
  • 11:50am-12:30pm Q&A and Concluding Remarks
