An Overview of Hardware Acceleration on Embedded Platforms 

In 1965, Gordon Moore observed that the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubled every two years. This observation seemed to be true and was dubbed Moore’s law. CPUs were getting denser and with higher clock rates came an exponential increase in performance. But Moore’s law was a long time ago, in fact it was so long ago back when humans haven’t even set foot on the Moon (or on a film set in California depending on who you ask). Today it is often quoted that Moore’s law is dead. Read more

Synthetic Data and Lidar Point Cloud Segmentation

The Long Road to Autonomous Driving  Autonomous driving (AD) has been the topic of research for multiple decades now, but only fairly recently have advancements in technology transformed this idea from sci-fi into a goal that seems achievable in the very near future. And that is a conservative statement, since autonomous driving has already been  … Read more

Passenger Monitoring in the Driverless Future

There are several ways how a vehicle might know the pace of your heart, respiration, and potentially other vital signs

The race is on for all things driverless, and everybody’s working full steam – from automotive OEMs to specialized startups. Prominent players who were not originally in the automotive business are elbowing in too, like Apple, which recently acquired a self-driving car startup. Consumer acceptance of the idea seems to be growing also. Read more

Vehicular heat stroke deaths

On average 38 children in the US die annually from heatstroke after being left in a hot car. Last year this number peaked at heartbreaking 52. But how could this happpen? Human body temperature is regulated within a narrow range of several degrees around 37°C (98.6°F). Once it rises to 42°C (107.6°F) and above, cytotoxicity occurs. Proteins start losing the high level structure important for their proper function and DNA synthesis is impaired, which eventually results in organ failure and neuronal impairment. Read more
