„The T-Shaped Engineer“

Today we're gonna talk about T-Shaped Engineer. What is T-Shaped Engineer?

T-Shaped Engineer is a person who has a broad high-level overview but at the same time they are able to go deep into the technology, at the code level, and they are able to explain things.

How can we define a T-Shaped engineer?
We can see a T-Shaped engineer if someone is present at various levels of the development cycle. They are good communicators at the very technical level, at the architecture level, at the requirement level, and they can also see the big picture.

Engineering is about communication and as we know, communication is an underrated topic in engineering. We believe that engineering is not only about inventing and solving problems even though if the person is really expert but if he/she can't communicate properly, then it would be trouble for the team sooner or later. That's why it's very important for a company to have a T-Shaped person.

„Automotive Cybersecurity“

It's a very exciting episode for you guys! Today we're going to talk about cybersecurity.

With the new era of digitization in the automotive domain, disruption is quite inevitable. Connectivity will make cars more vulnerable to attacks and may take human safety at risk as well. The threat will not be from the driver who is falling asleep, the threat will be from a cyber attacker.

Imagine, instead of COVID-19, the virus was a computer virus and it had crippled the entire network of the globe, it will be doomsday! Customers expect security as part of the vehicle, they don't expect to pay extra for cybersecurity and as we know, automotive in a net is 25 years behind the IT infrastructure.

With that, I have a great opportunity to discuss with Gilad Bandel, the VP of Product, and Marketing at Arilou Automotive Cybersecurity about how automation is gonna influence cybersecurity, how much is the potential of a cyber weapon, how easy it is to hack a vehicle, why the automotive industry is far behind compared to the IT industry, and many more!

„LIDAR for Autonomous Vehicle“

Today, it's all about LiDAR technology! What is LIDAR? LIDAR is the acronym of the term Light Detection And Ranging. LiDAR technology is based on bouncing a spot of light off an object, measuring the time of flight.

And I got the opportunity to talk with Aditya Srinivasan from Innoviz Technologies, we talk about LiDAR technology for autonomous vehicles, Elon Musk's radical viewpoint on LiDAR, Tesla's paradigm about cameras and radars can improve to the extent that you will not need a third sensing modality and many more!

„Radar for Autonomous Vehicle (2021)“

- Why is radar needed in a self-driving car? Camera vs. Lidar vs. Radar

- The differences between automotive Radar and Lidar.

- Vision of the future of automotive radar.

In this video, we're going to talk about radar technologies. The combination of a camera and the high-performance radar is really something that covers all of the cases, in the automotive industry, we call it sensor fusion.

And today we have an amazing guest, Noam Arkind, the CTO & Co-Founder of Arbe who decided to revolutionize radar technology!
