Naresh Kamboju, based in Hyderabad India, started working from Linux 2.x kernel and now is working on Linux Kernel Validation and is an active Open Source contributor. Majorly he works on Linux Test project (LTP), Kselftest, Android CTS, VTS, and SystemTap test suites. By using Linaro Automation and Validation Architecture (LAVA) he validates Linux kernel Trees which includes Linux-mainline, Linux-next, Linux-term-stable(LTS) 4.14, 4.9 and 4.4 and sending test reports to Linux kernel Mailing List aka LKML. Naresh Kamboju played a major role in validating ARM big.LITTLE Architecture on Versatile Express TC2 and Juno for measuring Power vs Performance on ARM and ARM64 architectures. he is involved in user space validation building Debian and RPM packages. He started his career at Deference Research and Development Organization (DRDO), Patni computers, Sony and Wipro.

Cavium engineers are showing the Cavium Octeon TX 24-core 64bit ARMv8 platform handling the IPsec tunnel for future base stations to be used for the 5G backhaul, to increase bandwidth, increase coverage for cellular networks around the world. Filmed at Linaro Connect.
RISC-V Linux port has been accepted into Linus’ tree and is slated to release as part of 4.15. While this is a major milestone for RISC-V, they’re far from done in Linux kernel land and there’s a whole lot of work left to be done in userspace.
RISC-V is an open instruction set architecture (ISA) that began in 2010 at the University of California, Berkeley, based on established reduced instruction set computing (RISC) principles, it can be freely used for any purpose, permitting anyone to design, manufacture and sell RISC-V chips and software.
Terrafugia's The Transition is the world’s first practical flying car. It offers the convenience of driving and the speed of flight, and will incorporate autonomous technologies that will make the Transition safer than any other small aircraft in the sky. Terrafugia has already developed and flown two full-scale prototypes, and has received all of the special legal approvals necessary to bring the Transition to market in the USA. And for the the Future, Terrafugia’s plans to later release the TF-X, a mass-market flying car with the potential to revolutionize the way people get around. An all-electric vehicle with vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capabilities and computer-controlled flight, the TF-X is the flying car of the future. This video was filmed at the IDTechEx Show! You can also watch Terrafugia's presentation video here.
Terrafugia CTO and Co-Founder Carl Dietrich presents Terrafugia's flying car in this presentation, including some of their innovations including sensing, IoT and autonomous systems. Terrafugia's mission is to create practical flying cars that enable a new dimension of personal freedom. With operational flying/driving prototypes and being acquired by Volvo Owner Geely.

The Mont-Blanc European Exascale supercomputing project based on ARM power-efficient technology, using Cavium ThunderX2 ARM server processor to power its new High Performance Computing (HPC) prototype with HPC SW infrastructure for ARM with tools, code stacks and libraries and more. The ambition of the Mont-Blanc project is to define the architecture of an Exascale-class compute node based on the ARM architecture, and capable of being manufactured at industrial scale. The Mont-Blanc 3 system being built by a consortium which includes Atos, ARM, AVL (Austrian power train developer) and seven academic institutions, including the Barcelona Supercomputer Center (BSC), implements this ARM for HPC with high memory bandwidth and high core count on Cavium's custom ARMv8 core architecture with out-of-order execution that can run at 3 GHz. The ThunderX2 might be delivering twice the integer and floating point performance compared with ThunderX1 with also twice the memory bandwidth.
