From ADAS functions to scalable systems
Solutions for architectures and real-time software for the autonomous future Our relationship towards cars is changing fast and comprehensively. Driver assistance functions, in-vehicle infotainment and mobility services, as well as driver-to-car and car-to-infrastructure connectivity will be affecting the driving experience profoundly. On the road to autonomous vehicles, the driver’s role is rapidly changing from driving to supervision, and eventually to passenger. In order to get there, we need to address key engineering challenges today, including novel systems and software architectures with sufficient flexibility and performance for the rapid evolution of functionality and dramatic increase in complexity. As driver comfort and safety converge into mixed-criticality systems, we need to establish suitable top-down development processes which enable fast, flexible and safe deployment of logical architectures onto physical architectures in a cost-effective manner. Furthermore, we need to reconsider traditional roles in the supply chain and answer who can provide the skills and engineering capacity to develop our future automotive software.
The webinar will provide answers to the following questions.
• What are key software development challenges for ADAS and autonomous systems?
• How can you ensure flexibility and testability while building these systems top-down?
• Bandwidth rules: What to consider before introducing in-vehicle Ethernet.
• Virtualization: how vehicle domains converge into mixed-criticality ECUs.
• The growing importance of independent embedded software providers.
Dr. Marek Jersak earned a Diploma in Electrical Engineering from Aachen University, Germany in 1997. He then worked on DSP compiler design for Conexant in Newport Beach, California, before returning to Braunschweig University, Germany in 1999 to research timing-analysis for embedded real-time systems with Prof. Rolf Ernst. He graduated with a PhD in 2004. In 2005, Marek co-founded Symtavision together with Kai Richter to provide timing analysis solutions to automotive OEMs and Tier1s. As CEO, Marek focused on strategy and business development, until they sold Symtavision to Luxoft in 2016. Since then, Marek has been leading Luxoft’s Under the Hood practice and expanding into system architectures and embedded software development.
