Mentor Graphics at ARM TechCon 2016 shows Games, Industrial Robots, Medical Devices and Security

Posted by Charbax – November 5, 2016

Ricardo Anguiano of Mentor Graphics describes a memory wall game demo built with the Nucleus RTOS and thirty six NXP FRDM-K64F boards and touchscreens, plus a Boundary Devices BD-SL-i.MX6 game controller which also runs the Nucleus RTOS. Phong Chau of Cepheid discusses their new GeneXpert Omni, a point of care molecular diagnostic system built with Mentor Embedded Linux. Also covered in the video is a Mentor Graphics industrial automation robot demo which runs both the safety-critical functionality and the HMI control running on the same SoC using hardware enforced separation with implications for safety certification feasibility and safety certification cost control. The video ends with a brief computer security discussion, how security doesn't lend itself to soundbites, and how the industry still makes the same security mistakes we were making since the 60s and how security applies to the Internet of Things and to the Automotive market.

They say that it won't explode under you, and if you are a good driver you shouldn't end up under a car while using it. Beware though, it seems easy to accelerate to top-speed using this setup.

Aero-service EV4, 4-wheel electric bike from Poland

Posted by Charbax – June 8, 2016

EV4 is designed by Aero-service in Poland, using low weight components highly durable aeronautical aluminum alloy, constructed like an airplane. The main frame of the vehicle is riveted just like in the case of airplanes to make it more durable and lightweight. The independent suspension uses an adaptive suspension system to adjust to the shape of the terrain at any given moment. Regardless of the surface type, terrain, angle of inclination of roads and travel, the EV4’s wheels uniformly and evenly touch the ground. Thanks to the electric drive as well as gear belts the noise emission is close to zero, which has a positive effect on the driving comfort. The vehicle’s low weight and the use of modern and efficient lithium ion batteries achieve a 100km driving range. Shocks are absorbed by two bicycle shock absorbers with adjustable hardness and damping. Hydraulic disc brakes on 4 wheels allow for very short braking distances, making the EV4 very safe. The EV4’s four wheels result in stability superior to that of single-track vehicles.
