Abstract (english)

This work presents the achievements that have been obtained in a number of ongoing research projects, at the University of Padova, in the field of automotive software and control architectures.

An overview of current state-of-the-art algorithms for the various elements of an autonomous vehicle will be given, along with a discussion at the current software options available for designing such a complex device. To fully understand the choices that have been made during the development, it will be necessary to show also a number of technical implementation details; these provide interesting insight into the background work which is nowadays considered as given by anybody who is not a middleware developer.

On the other end of the automotive electronics spectrum, a data logger and co-processor for racing vehicles will be presented. This compact device required interdisciplinary design decisions in both the mechanical, electronics and software engineering fields. Despite being a radically different application, a few key convergence points will emerge from the discussion.

The activity behind these projects covers several issues of applied research within the information technology tradition, and paves the way for the experimentation on live devices, with all their not-really-ideal behaviors, of advanced algorithms
in the automotive fields at the University of Padova.
