CDNLive EMEA was held on May 15-17, 2017 at the Infinity Hotel and Conference Centre in Munich, Germany and Oski was there exhibiting as a Cadence partner in the vendor exposition. It was a privilege to attend and to meet many Cadence users from across Germany, plus a wide spectrum of other places including Brazil, the Czech Republic, England, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Scotland, Serbia and Spain.
It was there that Davide Santo, NXP Semiconductor’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) visionary, delivered a standing-room-only keynote in which he described the coming revolution in automated and autonomous driving. He predicted massive growth in future computing requirements that will be necessary to achieve full vehicle automation. He explained how a hybrid topology of a central fusion unit and distributed smart sensors will be required to “sense”, “think” and “act” in unison.
