April: Zenoh in Automotive

Steering Towards Innovation

April shines a spotlight on “Zenoh in Automotive.” This theme is dedicated to exploring the integration and application of Zenoh within the automotive sector, specifically in software-defined vehicles. 

Through a series of webinars and panel discussions featuring experts and end-users, we will delve into new Zenoh features tailored for automotive applications, Zenoh Flow and discuss the path towards certification. We will also discuss some of the new features coming in 2024 for Zenoh-Flow.

Zenoh is setting a new benchmark for communication protocols that cater to the intricate needs of modern vehicular technology. As vehicles become more connected and autonomous, the requirement for efficient, secure, and scalable data exchange between vehicle components and external systems becomes increasingly critical. 

Zenoh’s design facilitates real-time data sharing and processing, essential for autonomous driving systems, in-vehicle infotainment, and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication. 

By leveraging Zenoh, manufacturers can accelerate the transition towards fully software-defined vehicles, paving the way for a future where cars are not just modes of transportation but integrated mobile computing platforms. Be sure to register and attend our webinars and panel discussions to learn more.

Webinars Schedule:

  • 2nd of April at 3 pm CET
  • 23rd of April at 3 pm CET

Panel Schedule:

  • Key Trends in Automotive Software: 16th of April at 3 pm CET 
  • Open Source and Certification in Automotive: 30th of April at 3 pm CET 

You will be able to see both of these panels live on one of our channels: LinkedIn, Twitter or YouTube. Please follow and subscribe to make sure you’re notified when we go live.

We will soon announce our panellist guests. They’re representatives from industry giants and will offer invaluable insights into the current and future landscape of automotive software.

May: Zenoh in Robotics

Pioneering Robotics Communication

May focuses on robotics, where we will investigate Zenoh’s impact on the robotics field. Featuring panel discussions with experts and users, this month’s webinars will discuss the Zenoh features designed for robotics. 

With its innovative approach to data distribution, Zenoh offers a solution that caters to the high demands of robotic systems. Its ability to seamlessly integrate with existing robotics middleware, such as ROS 2, enables a new level of interoperability and performance. This integration not only simplifies the architecture of distributed robotic systems but also enhances data throughput and reduces latency, crucial factors in real-time robotic operations.

Moreover, Zenoh’s lightweight footprint and its capacity for edge computing further amplify its impact on the robotics field. Robots often operate in environments where network connectivity can be limited or unreliable. Zenoh makes sure that robots can continue to operate effectively, even in challenging conditions. This opens up new possibilities for the deployment of autonomous robotic systems in remote or inaccessible areas, from deep-sea exploration to space missions. Register for our upcoming series of webinars to learn more about using Zenoh in robotics communication.

Weekly webinar schedule:

  • 7th of May at 3 pm CET
  • 14th of May at 3 pm CET
  • 21st of May at 3 pm CET
  • 28th of May at 3 pm CET

Panel Schedule:
