Mixed-Criticality Systems and Industrial Intelligent Systems – The 5th Domestic Embedded Operating System Technology and Industry Forum Concluded in Hangzhou

Advancements in embedded Artificial Intelligence have boosted the demand for high-performance computing. In order to counter the uncertainties in today’s global environment, China’s intelligent embedded systems must also adopt high-end heterogeneous chip and fundamental software that are made in China. Particularly, industrial intelligent system have a strong need for intelligent chips that can execute mixed-criticality systems.

Mixed-criticality is one of the major future directions of embedded system technology. Applications are already seen in autonomous driving, service robots, and automotive electronics. Industrial and defense settings can also see utility of mixed-criticality systems.

Beihang University School of Computer Science and Engineering, Beihang University School of Software, Beihang University Hangzhou Institute of Innovation, China Electronics Standardization Institute, Internet of Things Research Center, ESBF, and Microcontroller and Embedded System Application Journal organized and presented the 5th Domestic Embedded Operating System Technology and Industry Forum, also known as the 29th ESBF forum. The topic of the forum was “Mixed-Criticality System for Heterogeneous Multi-Core Intelligent Chips: Research and Application”. The organizers invited scholars from East China Normal University, Hunan University, Sun Yat-sen University, Fudan University, Beihang University, and other higher education institutions, as well as professional experts from Canaan Creative, Shanghai StarFive, Huawei, RT-Thread, and other well-known companies. Chunming Hu, Dean of Beihang University School of Software, gave the opening speech in the forum. Allan He, ESBF Secretary in Chief, and Professor Jianwei Niu of Beihang University School of Computer Science and Engineering hosted the forum.
