DesignCon 2022 Reveals Strong Educational Content Dedicated to Accelerating Autonomous Vehicle and IoT Markets

  • DesignCon partners with Drive World and Embedded IoT World to bring technical education to attendees.
  • Secure a DesignCon pass here.

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DesignCon, the nation’s largest event for chip, board, and systems design engineers, today announced the technical sessions, speaker Q&As, and demos confirmed for the 2022 conference, which, new this year, encompasses two complimentary conferences: Drive World and Embedded IoT World. With the additions of education from Drive World and Embedded IoT World, a well-established conference with a strong Silicon Valley following organized by Informa, DesignCon provides attendees access to a broader cross-selection of world renowned experts that are shaping the automotive and IoT technology of tomorrow and extends its already deep technical education offering when it returns to Santa Clara, CA, April 5-7, 2022.

The global autonomous vehicle market, valued at $76 billion in 2020 and forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 40.1% until 2030, is largely driven by the growth in connected infrastructure, the maturation of highly advanced technologies such as LiDAR, and significant investments in autonomous technology from heavyweight tech giants like Waymo, Tesla, Rivian, and Uber. Drive World at DesignCon serves as the industry’s must-attend conference, providing access to three days of technical and forward-looking education for those seeking insight topics ranging from multi-sensor calibration for ADAS applications to exploring the hardware and software that enables autonomous AI ecosystem on the edge.

Complementing Drive World is partnership with the Embedded IoT World conference, which provides a curated experience for engineers, architects, and developers using embedded technologies to bring end-to-end IoT solutions to life. It has never been more important to build safe, secure, and dependable devices that withstand the test of time so organizations can successfully integrate and commercialize end-to-end IoT solutions. Embedded IoT World at DesignCon aims to help engineers unpack the evolving standards and opportunities for connectivity, safety, and processing in the embedded community.

“The industry has made tremendous strides toward advancing autonomous vehicle technology, as well as the embedded technologies and IoT that lay the technological groundwork for progress,” said Suzanne Deffree, Group Event Director, DesignCon. “Bringing these two partner conferences to DesignCon 2022 is a strategic decision that supports our goal of providing our attendees with a comprehensive educational experience that reflects the changing direction of the industry. DesignCon’s traditional and deeply technical 14-track conference is unmatched, offering engineers ample opportunities to advance their design skills and careers in these emergent and important fields.”

Drive World is accessible with a DesignCon conference pass; Embedded IoT World is accessible with a DesignCon expo pass. A selection of Drive World and Embedded IoT conference sessions can be found below:

Moving Towards High Resolution Automotive Radar Systems
Speaker from Infineon

Currently, most radar use-cases are addressed by a single Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) system. Subsequently, a relatively smaller market is addressed by a high-resolution radar for use-cases defined in the scope of applications up to level 2+ automated driving systems from OEMs. However, moving from ADAS toward full autonomy, the demand for higher resolution radar is expected to substantially increase. This presentation explores various approaches employed to achieve this goal while discussing system-relevant tradeoffs.

Panel – Test on Wheels: Test & Measurement for Automotive Standards
Moderator from BitifEye Digital Test Solutions GmbH.

Panelists from Valens, Ford Motor Company, Keysight Technologies and BMW Group.

The Test on wheels panel brings together DesignCon and Drive World by examining the changes sweeping automotive technology and their signal integrity challenges. New, bandwidth-starved applications – driver assistance and self-driving tech, sensors and high-resolution displays, safety improvements, and smart cities – demand new standards with data rates far beyond anything ever attempted in the hostile automotive environment. Bring your ideas, concerns, and questions to our panel of DesignCon ready to discuss and argue about electronics in the automotive physical layer from application to chipset, PCB design to highway.

Lessons Learned from Building a Connected Artificial Nose Using TinyML
Speaker from Microsoft

Join this session to hear about the speaker’s journey from not being able to grasp what a neural network entails, to building a complete open source & open hardware DIY artificial nose that unlocks a wide variety of applications.

Smoke & Mirrors: Communication in the IoT World
Speaker from Siemens

A survey of IoT communications, including hardware and software, networks and protocols, perils and pitfalls. Presentation of communications data from real-word IoT deployments covering approximately 4,800 physical locations with 286,000 monitored points. All of this coming from more than 15 years of real-world, cloud-managed, IoT deployments all over North America.

Brands confirmed to exhibit on the expo floor include Amphenol, Keysight, and SureFire, supported by media and industry association partners Design News, Omdia, and PCEA (Printed Circuit Board Association).
