PhD Project Hiper Penta at Eindhoven University of Technology

International students are invited for a PhD scholarship at Eindhoven University of Technology. Applications will be evaluated immediately.

Eindhoven University, the Netherlands is looking for a PhD student for the project HiPer-PENTA to develop the concept of an automotive grade High Performance Vehicle Computer (HVPC) system

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.

As part of the procedure, and next to the usual documents such as a motivation letter and CV, we expect applicants to uploadtheirsolution to a small exercise; see

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.

Please do not forget to upload your solution to the small exercise. Applications without the solution will not be accepted.
