W07: "New Platforms for Future Cars: Safety and Security Challenges"

The automotive industry is rapidly moving towards the adoption of new hardware solutions, such as multi- and many-core processors, in order to comply with the increasingly number of ECUs and the high computational power required by future autonomous cars and advanced vision processing. The automotive industry has focused for many years on safety to gain expertise and maturity in building robust and safe cars. Today, with the emerging trends in the automotive domain such as autonomous driving, V2X communication and Internet of Cars, security is also arising as a major concern for many automotive players. Therefore, new architecture solutions pose numerous challenges besides the burden of migrating legacy code. This involves data fusion and processing of a multitude of sensors piling into autonomous cars, mapping affecting processing power demands in new systems architectures, the verification and validation of timing safety and providing secure interfaces to connect the cars to each other and to the outside world. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss some of the current challenges in the automotive domain that can be tackled by the research community at the software and hardware level.

The workshop will include only invited talks, with speakers from industry, namely Infineon, Bosch, Daimler, Chrona, NXP, Kalray and ESCRYPT, and two distinguished speakers from academia with a long experience in the field.
