Automotive Linux Summit
To realize smart-connected vehicles, the automotive industry needs a hardware and software architecture that guarantees security, simplified systems management, high processing/networking performance, open standards, interoperability, and flexibility.

Virtualization: The Smart-Connected Vehicle Enabler

The automotive electronic industry is now, more than ever, facing cybersecurity, connectivity, and software time-to-market challenges. Recently, in fact, vehicles have been hacked in several ways (e.g., physical and remote unlocking/control) and by different means (i.e., CAN bus, OBD-II, emulated...

This Mega-Sensor Makes the Whole Room Smart

Gierad Laput wants to make homes smarter without forcing you to buy a bunch of sensor-laden, Internet-connected appliances. Instead, he’s come up with a way to combine a slew of sensors into a device about the size of a Saltine that plugs into a wall outlet and can monitor many things in the room,...
