High-Level Synthesis for Autonomous Drive

High-Level Synthesis for Autonomous Drive

The sensors in autonomous vehicles continuously generate a high volume of data in real time about the environment surrounding the car. The vehicles need new hardware architectures to be able to process this data quickly and make decisions that enable self driving. Catapult®, the industry’s leading High-Level Synthesis (HLS) platform, provides a new paradigm of designing silicon at a higher […]

An Untapped Data Gold Mine

Leverage supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) data to address maintenance needs for maintenance operations and applications. (Image: Fluke) Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems are an excellent tool for managing operations and resources. However, many SCADA systems were deployed before condition-based maintenance technologies were available commercially. As a result, maintenance investments and planning were focused on increasing the […]

Images of a droplet on a surface show the process of freezing (top row), during which condensation temporarily forms on the outside of the droplet as it freezes. The next two rows show the droplet thawing out on a surface coated with the new layered material. In the middle row, the droplet is heated by the coating immediately upon freezing, and the dashed lines show where the freezing at top is just catching up with the thawing from below. The bottom row shows a slower thawing process. Under identical conditions, the droplet stays frozen without the new coating. (The Varanasi Research Group)
