We are pleased to announce the First Edition of the IEEE Distinguished Lecture series to feature an awardee of IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, who will present the topic:
Electronic Systems at the core of Autonomous, Connected and Electrified Vehicles’ Revolution
The talk, based on the IEEE DL held by S. Saponara, will discuss how Electronic Systems (for sensing, computing and actuation) are at the core of the Autonomous, Connected and Electrified Vehicles Revolution and their social, economic, and environmental impacts. The autonomous and V2X networking capabilities of vehicles pose new challenges in terms of security, safety and AI computing. These issues can be solved by a new generation of HW accelerated circuits and systems, such as those developed in the European Processor Initiative. Furthermore, the
transition towards the electrified vehicles is boosted by high-efficient power drive and smart converter circuits as will be discussed in the talk.
