PhD Project Hiper-penta at Eindhoven University of Technology

A PhD scholarship is available at Eindhoven University of Technology. This position is open until filled.

EIndhoven University of Technology is looking for a PhD student for the HiPer-PENTA project.

The objective of the HiPer project is to develop the concept of an automotive grade High Performance Vehicle Computer (HVPC) system that is capable to handle an autonomous driving environment. It will enable Level 5 automation and allow for the application of new electrical architectures by providing sufficient compute power and the necessary communication interfaces.

The consortium will substantiate this by demonstrating the HPVC system in a passenger car. The project aims at innovations along 3 paths: (i) Computation for thermal management, (ii) Communication for high speed communication and (iii) Integration for robust and more reliable systems.

For time-critical applications it is of paramount importance that throughput and latency requirements are met. For performance reasons, we shall in addition aim at effective and efficient resource usage, including energy, to prevent abundant heat production, amongst others. The high performance on-board vehicle computers (including the networks) shall therefore be designed with so-called tight analyzability in mind and complemented with tight analysis techniques. Unfortunately, as shown in [2], classical analysis techniques for Ethernet networks are overly pessimistic, resulting in over-dimensioning of systems. In this project, we aim at:

(1) providing recommendations on the design and implementation of Automotive Ethernet networks enabling tight analyzability and

(2) extending our earlier work on Ethernet AVB [1, 2, 3] towards Automotive Ethernet networks.

The section Security and Embedded Networked Systems (SENS) comprises the chairs Security (SEC) and System Architecture and Networking (SAN). SAN performs research in the area of resource management in real-time and distributed systems considering the architecture and design of these systems as well as algorithms for management of shared resources. The SEC group focuses on technical aspects of security and privacy for embedded systems, in particular on trust management. The section has a tradition of working with industrial partners in various projects.

The application should consist of the following parts:
