There have been significant development efforts in autonomous systems in the last decade. We have already started to see successful realization of products that utilize autonomous design and algorithms. Particular achievements have come in vehicle, avionic, and robotic applications. There are still research and development challenges in these systems though and some of these challenges do intersect with the interest of the design automation community. Thus, we are holding a workshop to facilitate interaction between autonomous system and design automation communities.
The EDA community has a long history developing a full spectrum of modeling, optimization, design verification and test algorithms and tools for electronic systems. We expect that the strong expertise accumulated in EDA over the past few decades may be well extended for the targeted application areas of this workshop, which, if successful, will stimulate new advancements in autonomous systems and broaden the impacts of EDA research in general.
To realize these goals, we are organizing a workshop with invited talks and panel sessions. We anticipate being able to understand the challenges they face and discuss if some of the problems can be solved using the skills and experience of the design automation community.
DAC is the premier conference devoted to the design and automation of electronic systems (EDA), embedded systems and software (ESS), and intellectual property (IP).
DAC 2017 will be held in Austin, Texas, at the Austin Convention Center. Get details about travel, hotels, and area attractions in one convenient spot.
