„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!

„ISO 26262 - Safety Analysis (2021)“

Functional safety is gaining importance across different industries. The new standard ISO26262​​ together with product liability enforce a professional implementation of Functional Safety​​. Today we're back with another very interesting topic, SafetyAnalysis​. We often get a lot of questions like, why is safety analysis important? What is the purpose of safety analysis? What is the unreasonable risk? And so on.

That's why we invite two of our beloved colleagues, Praveen Suvarna and Phalgun Upadhyaya to answer your questions.

In this video, we will explain what Safety Analysis methods we use frequently, 2 ways to conduct a safety analysis, inductive safety analysis, deductive safety analysis, 4 steps in FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis), and 4 steps in FTA (Fault Tree Analysis).

„Toward Autonomous Safety with Hans-Leo Ross (2020)“

Guess who's back in Matrickz Tech Talk today? The legendary functional safety expert Hans-Leo Ross!

Anyone who's looking for amazing literature that really comprehensive about ISO 26262 - Functional Safety in Automotive would know about Hans-Leo Ross's books.

- Funktionale Sicherheit im Automobil
- Functional Safety for Road Vehicles
- Safety for Future Transport and mobility

We have 16 years of history when it comes to ISO 26262, especially in the past decade, the automotive industry has gone through massive changes.

One we talked a great deal about is the electrification of vehicles, we will have autonomous vehicles, and we will have connected vehicles.

All these technologies will change the landscape forever!

Is ISO 26262 - the functional safety standard is the right answer for all these?

What do we need in order to adapt to the upcoming disruptions in the industry?

In this episode, Leo showed us the birth certificate of ISO 26262 and we talked about autonomous safety, the future of mobility, the safety aspect of transportation, and many more!

Watch the video until the end!
