Transportation and technology experts from around the globe will discuss the data challenges and solutions needed to produce self-driving autonomous vehicles at this year’s Flash Memory Summit (FMS) August 6-9 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
To address the critical data capture, storage, use of the volumes of data created and used in tomorrow’s self–driving vehicles and environment; FMS management will be holding a series of no-cost panel sessions (https://tinyurl.com/yy94faek) and discussions focusing on the hardware, software and communications solutions needed in autonomous cars and trucks.
“Autonomous vehicles are poised to disrupt industries and lifestyles around the globe,” Charles Sobey, FMS conference chairman, said, “They will generate a vast amount of data, much of which must be processed and stored securely and reliably in the vehicle, at the edge, or in the cloud. We are happy to make FMS’s autonomous vehicle sessions part of our free registration package to create a place where vehicle manufacturers, tier 1 suppliers, 5G communication experts, and storage hardware/software producers can exchange ideas to identify and develop solutions for the entire transportation industry.”
Session topics include:
- Auto infotainment – store or stream advances; entertain or distract – AUTO 202A–1
- The storage challenges of edge computing – AUTO 102A–l
- Tomorrow’s auto storage safety/security requirements – AUTO 101–1
- The storage/management challenges of the autonomous transportation ecosystem – AUTO 102B–1
- A unique in-vehicle, off-vehicle roundtable discussion – How do we capture, handle, use data properly while protecting content that is continuously in–motion – AUTO 202B–1
The no-cost free vehicle sessions will focus on reducing, if not eliminating, the approximately 1.3 million deaths in the world’s highways/byways; reduce the volume of vehicles on the road, and significantly reduce vehicles’ environmental impact.
“Fast, reliable in-vehicle and ecosystem communications/data storage will be a key component in meeting that goal,” Greg Basich, associate director at Strategy Analytics observed. “Data in tomorrow’s vehicles must be 100 per cent reliable, available and instantly provided to the various decision–making systems in the new moving environment.”
“The challenge for every sector,” Alan Messer, chief strategy & innovation officer at Innovation shift, added, “is to work together to design, develop and use storage redundancy, “soft fail” solutions that protect passengers and those around them. At the same time, we have to deliver solutions that will securely handle the constant flow of accurate information and vehicle upgrades/enhancements, while the vehicle is in motion.”
Sobey noted session participants would include automotive industry consultants and analysts Basich and Messer. Engineering experts from all segments of the industry include executives from Daimler AG, Harman, GM, Autonomous Edge, Macronix, DataIO, Tuxera, Marvell, Intel, California DOT Berkeley Automotive Development Lab, IBM, Cypress, Microchip, ATP, and other leading firms.
The one–day of sessions brings together leading automotive/Tier1 firms, digital storage/solution providers and automotive data capture/security experts to discuss the design, implementation and performance issues of integrated automotive intelligence. Discussions will also cover the challenges of high–speed connectivity/storage as well as the expanding safety and security challenges. Registration for the no–cost (https://tinyurl.com/y3jug4kd) sessions is open to individuals and organizations interested in understanding the issues and opportunities driving the technical advances for self–driving cars, Advanced Driver Assist (ADAS), and autonomous vehicles.
The Flash Memory Summit 2019 (FMS) will also showcase the latest in flash memory design, production and application with over eight simultaneous panel session tracks and 16 keynotes speakers from industry leaders around the globe. Featuring the most recent technology trends, new products and a broad range of storage applications including automotive, cloud, enterprise, mobile/wearables that are requiring a new generation of solutions for tomorrow’s organizations and consumers. The event will also include expert table discussions, performance testing opportunities, venture capital opportunities overview and enhanced women in technology sessions.
