ESS & Automotive
The Embedded Systems and Software (ESS) track offers embedded system designers and industry professionals the opportunity to connect through an engaging technical program that addresses all aspects of the embedded development ecosystem. The robust program includes research papers, Keynotes, panels, tutorials, special sessions and workshops. Complementing the technical program, the exhibit floor hosts many leading ESS providers, giving attendee's one event to interact with all players in the ecosystem.
Automobiles today are complex electrical and electronic control systems. Nearly every aspect of the vehicle uses smart electronics and embedded software to make our transportation experience safer, more energy-efficient and enjoyable. Premium vehicles can have several million lines of embedded software running on hundreds of electronic control units connected not only with one another by in-vehicle networks but also to the cloud, other vehicles and infrastructure. As the trend towards automated driving and connectivity accelerates, the ability to deliver these innovations depends more than ever on the electronics and software development capabilities. Mastering the enormous functional complexity while satisfying safety, security as well as cost constraints requires powerful methods and tools for all development steps.
The Automotive sessions at DAC provide a forum for people from automotive, embedded systems, security and EDA, to connect, engage, and exchange information. The sessions focused on automotive will highlight unique challenges, emerging solutions and explore the road ahead.
