On Thursday, October 10th KIT held the first automotive summit in cooperation with the Tongji University in Shanghai. Many representatives from research and companies in China such as BMW, Infineon, Intron and UAES (Bosch in China) participated and gave interesting presentations about their current and future R&D projects. One major topic is autonomous driving and how it can be accomplished with the currently available computing resources. Solutions ranging from edge and cloud computing to embedded HPC. In this discussion, the EPI project should not be missing. That’s why Prof. Jürgen Becker from KIT gave an interesting talk about the recent research activities in Germany and Europe also mentioning the on-goings in EPI and the known partners in the consortium. The project and plans were well received by the audience.
