  • Abstract:
    TSN and 5G are hot topics in the academic community and are seen as integral parts of the communication infrastructure of future industrial, automotive, and aerospace applications. 
    TSN introduces various mechanisms and protocols that enable QoS, real-time, and fault-tolerant guarantees over Ethernet networks. While these additions are powerful, there is no recipe on which mechanisms, or which combination of mechanisms, to use in which application domain or for which type of application and requirements. Some combinations of mechanisms provide few benefits, while other combinations are natural choices. Similarly, while individual mechanisms are easy to understand, their interaction is not well studied. 5G also enables high bandwidth and low latency for wireless networks but faces deployment challenges related to cost, complexity, and predictability.
    While some application domains are more open to adopting new and cutting-edge technologies, others are more conservative due to process constraints (e.g., retrofitting existing industrial plants) or due to safety and certification reasons (like in the aerospace domain). Hence, each application domain faces different and sometimes unique challenges in accepting new technologies, and this industrial panel aims to discuss some of these challenges. We are happy to have a very diverse panel covering different domains, backgrounds, and industry approaches. 
    Panelists :
    • Philippe Cuenot (Continental, France)
    • Wolfgang Fischer (Airbus, France)
    • Christiana Seethaler (TTControl, Austria)
    • Jörn Migge (RTAW, France)

    Keynote speaker: Olivier Flebus (Leader of AI and optimization Team at Vitesco Technologies, Toulouse)

    Short bio:
    Olivier Flebus is leading the Artificial Intelligence and Optimization team in the Technology and Innovation department of Vitesco Technologies. Olivier has 25+ years of experience with software development and agile approaches, in various domains and roles. In the last 10 years his focus has moved to data and AI, mixing technology- and business-related interests. Olivier is also president of the Big Data & AI experts community at the French society of automotive engineers (SIA), and external lecturer for data and AI at Toulouse Business School.

    This talk highlights the main stakes of AI in the automotive industry, as seen by a “digital guy” (far more than an “automotive guy”):
    • The wide landscape of AI applications in automotive and mobility
    • The major differences of AI compared to software (onboard as well as offboard) - Learning and Generalization as key AI concepts
    • Combining very different engineering lifecycles : automotive systems, digital services, data and AI (and Generative AI)
    • AI and data raise questions about trustworthiness, risks, regulations and technical standards
    • Challenges and proposed approach illustrated through an end-to-end example of an embedded critical system relying on AI-powered cloud services

    Keynote speaker: Dr. Dakshina Dasari (Corporate Research Center, Robert Bosch GmbH in Renningen)

    Short bio:
    Dakshina Dasari (Dr.) is a researcher at the  Corporate Research Center, Robert Bosch GmbH in Renningen. 
    She received her Ph.D. in 2014  from the Research Centre in Embedded Systems, University of Porto,  in the area of timing analysis of real-time embedded systems on multi-cores. Her research interests include predictable execution and performance of embedded systems, design, modelling, implementation and analysis of real-time systems and computer architecture. Her current work  encompasses the design and analysis of distributed embedded real-time applications which are deployed over the edge-cloud continuum, with a special focus on resource management considering communication semantics and timing constraints.
    Prior to her Ph.D., she worked in the area of networking for around 5 years with Sun Microsystems, Vegayan Systems and Citrix Systems in India. On the academic front, Dakshina has co-authored more than 35 peer reviewed articles and has served on the technical program committee of several real-time system conferences.

    This talk explores the complexities arising from the intersection of Edge Computing and Industrial Automation, emphasizing the pivotal role played by communication middleware and virtualization technologies in shaping the timing predictability of these systems. As Edge Computing continues to redefine Industrial Automation, this talk delves into the challenges posed by various communication middleware solutions. We scrutinize the ways in which these technologies contribute to or impede the essential timing predictability crucial for the seamless functioning of industrial processes. Additionally, the impact of virtualization technologies is examined, focusing on their capacity to create adaptable and scalable architectures and their influence on timing precision.
