Lots of people are talking about autonomous driving, but the number of people actually developing systems around it is relatively small. There are many reasons for this; some have to do with liability issues and some have to do with the super-long design cycles. But frankly, the biggest reason many shy away from developing the technology is because it?s really hard to do.

In-car wireless charging is growing in popularity, and the sense of urgency to develop viable solutions in this area was palpable on the CES 2018 show floor. There, chipmakers like Infineon and ON Semiconductor unveiled in-vehicle wireless charging designs.

The term ?connected car? loosely describes any vehicle with Internet access. It implies an external network connection, and possibly the provisioning of a wireless hotspot that other nearby devices can join. But in the age of IoT, is that really enough to consider a car ?connected??

A battery-management system (BMS) comes in many different flavors and often cover different aspects of that system. For example, it could encompass just the hardware or just the software. It could include an integrated analytics engine that maintains the proper levels. And so on. You get the idea.

Last week the Embedded Insiders faced the grind of CES 2018, but came away with a bunch of interesting topics to kick off 2018. Most notably, the Insiders encountered some problems with current use of the term, "connected car," listened in on some amazing advances in digital signal processing (DSP) for virtual assistants, and heard that LiDAR was a bunch of sh**. Tune in and tag along as they explain.

MdynamiX and dSPACE have entered a cooperation that intensifies their already constructive collaboration in developing and testing electric steering systems. To this end, the steering system model of Professor Peter E. Pfeffer, CEO of MdynamiX, was integrated into the dSPACE Automotive Simulation Model (ASM) tool suite.
