The automotive industry is rapidly moving towards the adoption of new hardware solutions, such as multi- and many-core processors, in order to comply with the increasingly number of ECUs and the high computational power required by future autonomous cars and advanced vision processing. The automotive industry has focused for many years on safety to gain expertise and maturity in building robust and safe cars. Today, with the emerging trends in the automotive domain such as autonomous driving, V2X communication and Internet of Cars, security is also arising as a major concern for many automotive players. Therefore, new architecture solutions pose numerous challenges besides the burden of migrating legacy code. This involves data fusion and processing of a multitude of sensors piling into autonomous cars, mapping affecting processing power demands in new systems architectures, the verification and validation of timing safety and providing secure interfaces to connect the cars to each other and to the outside world. The purpose of this workshop is to present some of the current topics in the field of automotive and secure systems and to bring a detailed and technical discussion about the research challenges that can be tackled in that area by the DATE community, both at the software and the hardware level.

The workshop will include only invited talks, with speakers from industry, namely Infineon, Bosch, Daimler, Chrona, NXP, Kalray and ESCRYPT, and distinguished speakers from academia with a long experience in the field. The workshop will be organized in the form of 3 main sessions:

  • Session 1 presents a panel of existing new hardware solutions considered by the automotive domain.
  • Session 2 presents the scientific problems related to the use of these new platforms and some of the proposed approaches to solve them.
  • Session 3 is dedicated to cyber security aspects in future cars.
