James Buczkowski, Henry Ford Technical Fellow of Ford Motor Company, and Jim Tung, MathWorks Fellow of MathWorks, Inc., will keynote the Automotive Systems and Software Track at the 2014 Design Automation Conference (DAC) being held at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, Calif., from June 1 – 5, 2014.
Buczkowski and Tung will explore the key trends shaping the future of automobiles and examine what it will take to design the electronics that will power automation.
The immense increase in automobile automation will span many dimensions – including safety, connectivity, and infotainment. From complementary perspectives, Tung and Buczkowski will discuss the many technologies that will need to come together across the automotive supply chain for automation to become a reality.
These Fellows believe that semiconductor and electronics technologies will continue to push the limits of hardware and software co-design and integration of sensors, mathematics, and algorithms. Safety, communication, navigation, and entertainment applications onboard next- generation automobiles will require taut integration with semiconductors, and design tools that enable streamlined design and verification of hardware and software implementations.
