  • Applying EDA Techniques to Analysis and Optimization to In-vehicle Distributed Systems F
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Modern vehicles have complex architectures with many electronic control units (ECUs) and different communication buses that are used to implement different distributed control algorithms. Developing such complex hardware/software systems rely on building accurate virtual prototypes ad simulators, which are used both for systems design & optimization, as well as for parallel software development. This session will feature different talks discussing various challenges and solutions in this domain.

  • Connected Engineering for Automtive EE Design F
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION A well managed process with seamless information flow from concept to design to verification to in-production updating (e.g. software updates) is the holy grail for a fully enabled Systems Engineering process. Aspects of this enablement is the theme of this session and it looks at three different views of how systems engineering is enabled at various levels in the process.

    PANEL Having heard the exciting and informative keynote in the formal setting, come to the Pavilion for an informal interaction with James Buczkowski as Wally Rhines engages him in a wide ranging conversation from his career and cars of the future to designing for safety and the role of EDA in his world. Be prepared to ask your own questions such as why the nifty feature everyone wants in their car is missing, or if a driverless flying car will ever be available for the masses?
