Engineers interested in sharing their knowledge of embedded systems and advanced automotive electronics are invited to submit their proposal to speak at Drive World+ESC Conferences, to be held January 26-28, 2021, in Santa Clara, CA. Submission deadline is July 10 -- there will be no extension.

Drive World+ESC logosLaunched in 2019, Drive World focuses on the rapidly evolving automotive segment with engineering technical sessions and tutorials in the fields of automotive electronics and intelligence. Drive World is paired with ESC, also known as the Embedded Systems Conference, an electronics education and knowledge sharing event and has been influencing engineering for 30 years.

For 2021, Drive World+ESC will be alongside DesignCon, North America’s largest chip, board, and systems event. This three-day co-located event will bring together the brightest minds across the automotive electronics, embedded systems, and semiconductor industries.

We are accepting in-depth, detailed proposals that may involve, but are not limited to, the following topics:

Drive World Tracks

Security & Safety
As we approach Level 5 autonomy, the need for greater AV safety and security increases exponentially. This track delves into code and sensor vulnerabilities for both infrastructure and vehicles, and outlines ways hackers may tamper with these systems.

Sensing Technologies
This track dives into innovations in Lidar, Radar, vision, and camera systems used in autonomous vehicles. Sessions will define these emerging technologies and explore their advanced applications in an industry nearing Level 5 autonomy.

Autonomous & ADAS
Cut through the hype surrounding autonomous vehicles and advanced driver-assistance systems. Explore safety and security considerations and learn the realistic timelines expected to reach full autonomy.

Connectivity & Infotainment
Take a closer look at how telematics, 5G mobility, and V2X (vehicle-to-everything) are paving the way for self-driving vehicles. Sessions will focus on infotainment system development and the security measures required for deployment.

Embedded Systems Tracks

Embedded Hardware Design & Verification
This track looks at the latest in low-power design, systems architecture, debug and test, security, sensors, FPGAs, MCUs, SOCs, and more to help you engineer more efficient products.

Embedded Software Design & Verification
A must for embedded systems developers, this track drills into the new thinking behind device drivers, open-source software, RTOS, security, code reliability, embedded Linux, C/C++, Python, and more.

IoT & Connected Devices
Learn how networks are growing, integrating, and improving the way we build and experience the world. Topics include architecture, Firmware, RF protocols, application software, and security.

Advanced Technologies
AI, machine learning, and other technologies are reshaping the engineering landscape. This track will take a closer look at what’s coming next and help you understand how these innovations will impact your work.
