Softbank and carmaker Subaru completed a test that used a 5G n... » read more

Why Designing ICs From The Ground Up For Automotive Applications Matters


Today's cars are computers on wheels, with multiple systems talking to each other constantly to deliver intelligence that keeps drivers and passengers safe, comfortable, and entertained while taking them from point A to point B. While we're not quite ready to completely welcome fully autonomous self-driving cars on our roadways, we are experiencing the benefits of Level 2 and Level 3 autonomous... » read more

Week In Review: Auto, Security, Pervasive Computing


PCs get work-from-home bump Rather than using Intel chips, Apple will be making its own chips for its Mac computers, using Arm cores, Bloomberg reports. TSMC will manufacture the chips. Intel, meanwhile, was up 14% quarter year-over-year its PC business, which it attributes to more people working from home and needed new equipment. Despite a strong quarter, however, the company pulled its 2... » read more

Optima Design Launches, Focuses On Functional Safety


Autonomous driving is really happening. "Although a concept and dream for many automotive enthusiasts and engineers since the 1950s, now it's really happening," asserted Jamil Mazzawi, founder and CEO of Optima Design, which launched today. “At the same time, everybody knows that if we continue to have accidents, like the Tesla accident or the Uber accident, this will not work. People will... » read more

How Many Test Miles Make A Vehicle Safe?


The road to reliable safety testing of autonomous vehicles (AVs) is shifting left. Standards groups are beginning to publish functional safety standards that could make it possible to verify what a machine-learning AV pilot application will do in a traffic situation even before hardware or software is released from validation testing. This kind of approach has been possible for some time in ... » read more
