Efficient Handling of Performance Requirements in Automotive Applications with a Scalable Vector DSP Solution
Presenter: Konrad Walluszik, Concept Engineer, Infineon
A key trend in the automotive industry is to develop safer, smarter and more eco-friendly cars. This development requires innovative products for future automotive applications such as domain controllers, e-mobility and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
This presentation gives an overview about the challenge of addressing scalable performance requirements with a homogenous SoC family targeting different automotive application domains. Leveraging the capabilities of a highly-configurable ARC Vector DSP solution allows scalable SIMD performance, supplemented by a uniform ecosystem to address the family concept. Based on application examples the presentation will show how corresponding challenges are solved by optimized ARC EV processors.

Safe & Secure SoC Architectures for Autonomous Vehicles
Presenter: Fergus Casey, R&D Director, Synopsys
Let’s face it: People are bad drivers. The Driver is the biggest uncertainty factor in cars, and computer vision is helping to eliminate human error and make the roads safer. Autonomous vehicles are expected to save almost 300K lives each decade in the United States, but after 4-5 decades of autonomous car proof of concepts and years of development, driverless cares still seem a long way off. This presentation will describe the challenges that SoC designers and OEMs face when developing self-driving vehicles, from understanding how a pedestrian looks to software/silicon, to understanding an entire scene. It will then describe the key milestones that the industry, and each chip design, must reach on the road to autonomous driving, and how to know when you’ve reached them.

How to Execute AUTOSAR Classic Projects from a Tooling Perspective on the ARC Functional Safety Processor IP
Presenter: Chris Thibeault, Head of Partner Management – Americas, Elektrobit
Electronic control units (ECUs) empower vehicle functionality, and tooling is an essential aspect of AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture (AUTOSAR) Classic for ECU development. In this presentation, attendees will learn how the AUTOSAR Standard has evolved. In addition, best practices to set up a typical configuration and integration workflow, including tooling aspects of the AUTOSAR methodology using Elektrobit’s solution for AUTOSAR Classic, as well as configuring AUTOSAR basic software modules and translating the code running on Synopsys’ Functional Safety Processor IP will be covered.
