Trends in Autonomous Driving Technology
The presentation will discuss the current trends and the
evolution of ADAS (Advanced Driving Assistance
Systems) and will also present some
state-of-the-art technologies that are currently being
used to power experimental autonomous vehicles.
The talk will focus on emerging technologies, like
artificial vision, that are currently showing a great
potential for future products not only in the automotive market
but for mining, agricultural, forestry, and defense
applications as well.
Considerations on cost and integration will drive the discussion.

Management of CPU Resources - From Embedded to the Cloud
High-performance embedded systems require the execution of many applications on multicore platforms. In this presentation two dynamic CPU resource managers intended for Linux-based multi-core applications are presented. In the first part a resource manager developed within the European ACTORS project is presented and demonstrated using a multimedia demo. The approach combines integer programming with feedback in order to decide the application service levels and the amount of resources allocated to each application. In the second part an approach is presented that is only based on feedback and for which formal convergence analysis results can be derived. This resource manager is inspired by ideas from game theory. The latter resource manager is also currently being applied to cloud applications and an overview of this will be given.

CompSOC: Virtual execution platforms for mixed-criticality applications
Cyber-physical, embedded real-time systems usually contain multiple concurrent applications that have different characteristics and requirements, and are often designed by different parties. As a result, a single system contains applications designed using different models of computation (MOC), and with different criticalities (e.g. real time, safety critical, adaptive, or not). By offering an independent execution virtual platform to each application, the CompSOC platform enables independent design, verification, and execution of applications with different criticalities and models of computation. We present the underlying concepts, architecture, and formalism of the CompSOC platform. More information can be found on.

Migrating Real-Time Software from Single-Core to Multicore Chips
Real-time systems, such as navigation and control, must meet specified deadlines. Single Core Equivalent (SCE) virtual machine technology reduces the risks in the migration by enabling the reuse of real time system engineering process developed for single core chips, including design, development, schedulability analysis, testing, integration, through certification. With or without SCE technology can make 600% WCET difference as shown in Figure 1 (with permission to publish).
