The Automotive Industry Track at NIWeek in Austin (May 20-23) will be sponsored by Konrad Technologies. The Radolfzell, Germany-based company provides value added, platform based automated test solutions used to solve the world´s most complex engineering challenges.
Michael Konrad, Chief Executive of Konrad Technologies, said: “We are proud and honoured to sponsor the highly anticipated NIWeek Automotive Track. A compilation of technical presentations over three days cover topics from Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), Autonomous Driving (AD), Electric Vehicles (EV), Automotive Communications and beyond.”
Chad Chesney, Vice President and General Manager, Transportation Business at National Instruments, responded: “Konrad Technologies is a distinguished National Instruments Platinum Alliance Partner and leading solutions provider in the automotive industry. Worldwide, our customers experience greater success throughout their V&V and manufacturing processes when they work with National Instruments and Konrad Technologies. We look forward to new opportunities with Konrad Technologies and are excited about the future.”
Konrad Technologies has been selected by National Instruments to present eight technical sessions throughout the Automotive Track, Skills Development Tracks and Test Leadership Forum.
Chris Roebuck, Certified NI LabVIEW and TestStand Architect, LabVIEW Champion and Professional Instructor at Konrad Technologies in the United Kingdom, will bring his expertise to present sessions on approaches to improving code quality, robustness, workflow, fixing failures and aspects of continuous integration.
A further session co-presented with an industry leader in test automation for semiconductor will explore how to develop a NI LabVIEW team on the way to creating a Centre of Excellence for NI LabVIEW development.
The Konrad Technologies Radar Production Test System (KT-RPTS) for 24GHz or 76-81GHz automotive sensor test will be showcased at the NI Automotive Pavilion. The complete solution provided by Konrad Technologies is built on the flexible and modular National Instruments Vehicle Radar Test System (VRTS) platform.
Ram Mirwani, Director of Global Business Development, ADAS at Konrad Technologies said: “Konrad Technologies designed the KT-RPTS with the end user radar production test requirements in mind. This test platform increases the quality of test by combining measurement-based functional test with object simulation for a total performance evaluation in seconds.”
ADAS iiT will have a prominent 20 x 20 foot booth on the NIWeek exhibition floor with a full Sensor Fusion Hardware in the Loop (HIL), Data Management and Vehicle-to-X (V2X) Communication demonstration.
Becky Linton, Senior Systems Engineer at Konrad Technologies is the NIWeek 2019 Software Engineering Processes, Architecture, and Design (SEPAD) Track Chair.
Linton explained: “Along with my co-chair, Chris Cilino, LabVIEW Framework Architect at Cirrus Logic, we have been planning the SEPAD Track for months to bring attendees the best sessions possible. This year we curated 57 sessions over four days focused on advanced NI TestStand, LabVIEW and SystemLink covering software topics throughout requirements, design, unit testing and integration. I am excited for the variety of mini-tracks this year, from Object-Oriented (OO) to Continuous Integration (CI) to community topics and even a full week following a theoretical project life cycle.”
