Review of the week: Automated computing, security, and end-to-end computing

Cars and Mobility

Two auto OEMs unveiled new electric car models this week. The Audi Q8 e-tron she has 40 driver assistance systems including five radar sensors, five cameras and 12 ultrasonic sensors, and come with either an 89 kWh or 106 kWh battery pack. Arrives in the United States in April 2023 Volvo EX90 it contains Lidar and 5G connectivity as standard and devices to enable bi-directional charging. Deliveries are expected to begin in early 2024.

Lidar Companies veloden And the Oster announce A merger, expected to be completed in the first half of 2023. The companies said the deal will allow for cost savings of $75 million within nine months after the deal closes as a result of “operating expense synergies.” The combined cash balance for the third quarter of both companies is approximately $355 million.

Infineon cooperated with Ray for cars On the Ree Modular Electric Vehicle platform. The product uses up to 11 Infineon microcontrollers, as well as Infineon MOSFETs, power supplies, magnetic sensors, and other Infineon components. “Innovative and modular electric platform designs add new options for both established and emerging players in the industry to further accelerate electric mobility,” said Peter Schaefer, Head of Automotive Division, Infineon.

A series of “strange” incidents related to self-driving cars reveal the challenges of overcoming loopholes and consumer reluctance. Read more over here.


Congress report have found The country’s healthcare sector is “uniquely vulnerable” to cyberattacks. The report, released by the office of Senator Mark Warner, Democrat of Virginia, Speaker of the House of Representatives Senate Intelligence Committee, states that healthcare-related cyberattacks affected more than 45 million people last year. The report outlines several policies under consideration, including the storage of analogue medical devices and walkie-talkies for use by hospitals facing cyberattacks.
