In conjunction with the SAE 2014 World Congress at Cobo Center, the Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center will host professional development seminars, two of which will be taught by technical fellows with Visteon's Electronics business. Michael Tschirhart, Ph.D., will educate participants about "Vehicle User Experience: Human Factors Principles and Techniques for Design, Research and Development," while John Kosinski will train professionals on "Developing In-Vehicle User Interfaces: Design Principles and Techniques." For more insight into Kosinski's session, read his blog at http://blog.visteon.com.  

The SAE World Congress program includes Chat with the Expert panels. Visteon Six Sigma Master Black Belt Balaji Bharadwaj will offer recommendations during the panel titled, "Transactional Six Sigma Techniques for Developing High-Performance Teams in the Automotive Industry." Tschirhart is also participating in a panel discussion  titled: "Human Factors of Connected Vehicles (plus are connected cars necessary for self-driving cars to succeed?)."

Along with Kathleen Ku, Tschirhart will present two Safety/Testing papers focused on topics related to human-machine interaction (HMI). One paper outlines the influence of font type on displays in an automotive environment, while the second reveals research findings related to driver perceptions about varying image depth and dimensions in instrument clusters.

HVCC will present papers in the Emissions/Environment/Sustainability sessions, including a joint paper with Hyundai that discusses the combined condensing air-conditioning system. Another technical paper will outline ways to determine vehicle dual air conditioning system charge level.

Visteon has four papers in the Electronics technical sessions – covering an array of topics including sample rate conversions, approaches to reduce development time, algorithms for signal processing, and an analysis of connected vehicle software.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
