Designing Connected Car Cockpits

Designing Connected Car Cockpits
by Roger C. Lanctot on 08-18-2019 at 4:00 pm

Creating engaging, though not distracting, in-vehicle experiences that enhance driving and maximize safety represents an intimidating and inspiring opportunity for automotive designers – who have already made great strides. The widespread adoption of connectivity means that artificial intelligence in the form… Read More


Mentor-Tanner Illuminate MEMS Sensing, Fusion

Mentor-Tanner Illuminate MEMS Sensing, Fusion
by Bernard Murphy on 08-14-2019 at 6:00 am

I enjoy learning and writing about new technologies closely connected to our personal and working lives (the kind you could explain to your Mom or a neighbor). So naturally I’m interested in AI, communication and security as applied to the home automation, transportation, virtual, augmented and mixed reality, industry and so… Read More


5G Auction without Action​ = Fraud

5G Auction without Action​ = Fraud
by Roger C. Lanctot on 08-07-2019 at 10:00 am

“We don’t need 10 Mbit/s, but rather basic bandwidth and guaranteed latency. We need coverage!” thus spoke BMW Senior Vice President of Electronics Christoph Grote at the recent Automobil-Elektronik Kongress in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Grote was making this plea in the context of the onset of 5G technology.… Read More


Insurers Not Ready to Discount Premiums on ADAS

Insurers Not Ready to Discount Premiums on ADAS
by Bernard Murphy on 08-07-2019 at 6:00 am

Think because your new car is loaded with ADAS your insurance company should give you a break on premiums? Think again. The purpose of all those fancy features is to reduce the risk of an accident or damage to your car, either of which could be costly to your insurance company and quite possibly to you also. If you’re paying extra for … Read More


Mentor Highlights HLS Customer Use in Automotive Applications

Mentor Highlights HLS Customer Use in Automotive Applications
by Bernard Murphy on 07-30-2019 at 6:00 am

I’ve talked before about Mentor’s work in high-level synthesis (HLS) and machine learning (ML). An important advantage of HLS in these applications is its ability to very quickly adapt and optimize architecture and verify an implementation to an objective in a highly dynamic domain. Design for automotive applications – for … Read More


Virtuoso Adapts to Address Cyber Physical Systems

Virtuoso Adapts to Address Cyber Physical Systems
by Tom Simon on 07-29-2019 at 2:00 pm

LIDAR is a controversial topic, with even Elon Musk weighing in on whether it will ever be feasible for use in self driving cars. His contention is that the sensors will remain too expensive and potentially be unreliable because of their mechanical complexity. However, each of the sensors available for autonomous driving have … Read More


5G and V2X

5G and V2X
by Bernard Murphy on 07-25-2019 at 5:00 am

Amid the glamor of autonomous vehicles and hot new ADAS features, communication between vehicles and other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists or infrastructure, generally labeled V2X, doesn’t get as much press, perhaps because adoption is still pretty early or because it’s technology under the hood (quite literally) and therefore… Read More


Could Trump Slump Give Mobility a Bump?

Could Trump Slump Give Mobility a Bump?
by Roger C. Lanctot on 07-21-2019 at 6:00 am

Reports from Reuters last week suggested that the European Union member states “should brace for U.S. tariffs on several fronts in the coming months,” based on the comments of a senior German official who had met with “U.S. officials and lawmakers” in Washington. Among other sectors in the Trump Administration’s… Read More


5G Faith & the Automotive Industry

5G Faith & the Automotive Industry
by Roger C. Lanctot on 07-19-2019 at 6:00 am

As the automotive industry slowly comes to terms with the implications of 5G connections in cars there are few outside the industry that understand the significance of this technology transition. It isn’t just a technology turning point. It is an emotional turning point for the industry as well.

Announcements are beginning… Read More


Automotive Market Pushing Test Tool Capabilities

Automotive Market Pushing Test Tool Capabilities
by Tom Simon on 07-09-2019 at 8:00 am

It’s easy to imagine that the main impetus for automotive electronics safety standards like ISO 26262 is the emergence of autonomous driving technology. However, even cars that do not offer this capability rely heavily on electronics for many critical systems. These include engine control, braking, crash sensors, and stability… Read More
