Bolstering Security For AI Applications


Hardware accelerators that run sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms have become increasingly prevalent in data centers and endpoint devices. As such, protecting sensitive and lucrative data running on AI hardware from a range of threats is now a priority for many companies. Indeed, a determined attacker can either manipulate or steal training data, inf... » read more

AI Warnings For Safer Driving


You’re driving to work, the same route you take every day. But this time, a storm passes over: you’re suddenly faced with heavy rain and reduced visibility. All of a sudden, the “accident score” meter on your car’s dashboard moves into the red. You ease off the gas, move out of the passing lane and your score drops down to amber—you can’t get it into the green due to the advers... » read more

Shrinking AV’s 1 Billion Test Miles


There is still no answer to how many miles an autonomous vehicle needs to drive before it's proven safe. But some AV developers and test companies are hoping to ease the burden a bit with automation that makes millions of real and simulated miles of road testing simpler to implement, supported by standards that make it easier to create and trade simulation scenarios. The goal is to reduce th... » read more

Best Practices for Traceability of Functional Safety Requirements In Automotive IP & SoCs


Automotive functional safety systems continue to incorporate complex features to meet wide range of consumer demands. Developing functional safety systems, including all the components such as the system-on-chip (SoC) and IP, hinges on the ability to meet the stringent automotive functional safety requirements such as definition, implementation, verification, and validation. Functional safety S... » read more

Machine Learning For ADAS Camera Manufacturing


Virtually every vehicle manufacturer in the world is either developing, purchasing, or investing in ADAS systems in order to bring autonomous vehicles into the market. With this demand on the rise, the need for high quality automotive camera modules is rising. ADAS systems are built using computer vision technology and act as the “eyes” of autonomous vehicles. Numerous cameras are embedd... » read more

Autonomous Vehicles Are Reshaping The Tech World


The effort to build cars that can drive themselves is reshaping the automotive industry and its supply chain, impacting everything from who defines safety to how to ensure quality and reliability. Automakers, which hardly knew the names of their silicon suppliers a couple of years ago, are now banding together in small groups to share the costs and solve technical challenges that are well be... » read more

Where Should Auto Sensor Data Be Processed?


Fully autonomous vehicles are coming, but not as quickly as the initial hype would suggest because there is a long list of technological issues that still need to be resolved. One of the basic problems that still needs to be solved is how to process the tremendous amount of data coming from the variety of sensors in the vehicle, including cameras, radar, LiDAR and sonar. That data is the dig... » read more

Manufacturing ADAS Cameras Calls For Analytics


Automotive camera design and manufacturing is one of the most difficult undertakings in hardware. Not only do you need to deal with the usual difficulties of high performance mechanical and electrical designs, but now highly specialized and sensitive optics are added into the equation. Complicating factors is that you won’t know how good the product is until it’s been completely assembled, ... » read more

Automotive Trends Create New Challenges For Wiring Harness Development


The rapid introduction of new technologies and the influx of automotive start-ups into the market has led to a multitude of challenges for harness development. OEMs and startups alike must consider the number and sophistication of technology features they integrate into their vehicles as they have a direct effect on harness weight, bundle diameter, and cost. Electrification, autonomous drive an... » read more
