Accelerating Development of Functionally Safe Automotive Systems

The increasingly complex electronics hardware and software architectures of next-generation autonomous, connected, and electric vehicles represent new and daunting challenges for automotive engineering teams. This keynote by Porsche Consulting, Inc. will discuss how automotive development organizations can accelerate silicon chip design with automotive-grade IP, speed software development with virtual prototypes, and address functionality safety and reliability throughout the development lifecycle.

Breakout Sessions

10:00 a.m. – 10:40 a.m. PT

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.

10:40 a.m. – 11:20 a.m. PT

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.

11:20 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. PT

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.

10:00 a.m. – 10:40 a.m. PT

SoC Level Safety Management, A Software View

Speaker: Anatoly Savchenkov, Software Engineering Manager, Synopsys

Increasing complexity of automotive ICs consisting of multiple heterogeneous processors and accelerators, I/O interfaces and custom hardware blocks raises unprecedented challenges for safety architects. Safety management tasks including safe boot, periodic safety testing and handling of runtime safety escalations traditionally are done in hardware making them expensive and not easily reusable in multiple designs. This presentation describes how Synopsys safety hardware architectures are enabled by ARC embedded safety software to deliver increased usability, extensibility, and robustness for SoC level safety management tasks.

10:40 a.m. – 11:20 a.m. PT

Addressing the Challenges of RADAR, LiDAR & Vision Sensor Fusion for Next-Generation Automotive ADAS Systems

Speaker: Pieter van der Wolf, Principal R&D Engineer, Synopsys

Automotive ADAS systems use multiple sensing technologies, RADAR, LiDAR and Imaging to create a 360 degree view of surroundings. Each different sensing technology has its own advantages to environmental conditions. Complexity is increasing in ADAS systems, while demanding a reduction in component cost. This presentation will go through the computation capabilities of various Synopsys ARC processors as well as discuss the use of cross computation and sensor fusion functionality to improve the quality of sensor detected object data in automotive ADAS systems.
