The need for lidar in the autonomous vehicle sensor stack led to an explosion of investment from OEMs between 2016 and 2018. More than 70 companies received a total of over $1 billion to bring competing lidar approaches to the market. Frequency modulation (FM) is a measurement technique borrowed from modern radar systems now being applied to automotive lidar.

With respect to the design of electrical/electronic (E/E) systems, development methodologies and verification & validation (V&V) tools have advanced significantly over the past few decades. Today, the model-driven development (MDD) methodology and ?X?-in-the-loop (XIL) verification approaches are well established as effective means to develop safe and secure vehicle E/E systems.

A few years ago the U.S. led the world in wireless vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) technology. Pilots were popping up around the country based on the IEEE 802.11p protocol (also known as wireless access in vehicular environments (WAVE) or dedicated short-range communications (DSRC)), which, it appeared, would become the de facto V2X communications standard. Then the government got involved.

A major prerequisite for highly automated driving systems using high-definition map data is the knowledge about the vehicle's position. This position needs to have a much higher precision than can be achieved with a GNSS sensor alone. Therefore, various other sensor systems like gyroscopes or odometers can be used to enhance the position estimation. This contribution describes a system using another input, ADASISv3 map data, to improve the positioning.

At CES 2019, while much of the limelight was inevitably centered around autonomous vehicle initiatives like robocars and robotaxis, the show floor also displayed some exciting stuff for the next-generation infotainment, encompassing multiple digital assistants, voice navigation, virtual cockpit, and immersive entertainment.

Ethernet is non-deterministic with a degree of uncertainty in Quality of Service (QoS), potential packet losses and wide range latency. Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) can effectively change the scenario with its traffic shaping protocol IEEE802.1Qbv. It improves the end-to-end latency, which guarantees constant latency for time-critical Control Data Traffic (CDT) and makes Ethernet deterministic.
