Sensor Fusion Challenges In Automotive

Why a single, centralized architecture is so critical for sensors.


The number of sensors in automobiles is growing rapidly alongside new safety features and increasing levels of autonomy. The challenge is integrating them in a way that makes sense, because these sensors are optimized for different types of data, sometimes with different resolution requirements even for the same type of data, and frequently with very different latency, power consumption, and reliability requirements. Pulin Desai, group director for product marketing, management and business development at Cadence, talks about challenges with sensor fusion, the growing importance of four-dimensional sensing, what’s needed to future-proof sensor designs, and the difficulty of integrating one or more software stacks with conflicting requirements.
