The AutoSens Brussels 2022 agenda included more than 60 speakers across expert panels, technical case studies and sessions covering 12 key themes. MIPI participated in the event with a session on 13 September presented by Ariel Lasry, vice chair of the MIPI A-PHY Working Group.
MIPI Session: An Integrated Approach to Creating Functionally Safe Automotive Sensor Systems
As more sensor-based safety critical systems are added to vehicles, the benefits of a standards-based approach for sensor connectivity also increase – and even more so if functional safety requirements are already integrated into that solution.
This presentation demonstrates how the MIPI Automotive SerDes Solutions (MASS℠) framework provides a standardized sensor-to-ECU solution for autonomous driving and ADAS systems with functional safety built into its core. The presentation describes the MASS framework with specific focus on the functional safety features that have been embedded “throughout the stack,” starting from the Camera Service Extensions (MIPI CSE℠) layer to the baseline MIPI CSI-2® image sensor protocol, to the MIPI A-PHY® SerDes physical layer. Also highlighted are upcoming features for CSE and A-PHY, and a discussion of how this solution will enable developers to embed functional safety natively at the ‘edge’ – within the sensor and ECU components themselves.
Ariel Lasry, Vice Chair of the MIPI A-PHY Working Group, and Director, Technical Standards at Qualcomm
Ariel Lasry joined Qualcomm in 2021 as director, technical standards. For more than a decade, he has been actively engaged in standardization activities across multiple SDOs including the MIPI Alliance, where he has been an active contributor to multiple working groups since 2009. He currently serves as vice chair for the MIPI A-PHY Working Group.
Prior to his role at Qualcomm, Ariel was chief engineer at Toshiba Electronics Europe in Düsseldorf, where he was responsible for strategic business planning and standardization, and represented Toshiba on the MIPI Alliance Board of Directors from 2012-2020.
