Gordan Galic

Gordan has 25+ years of experience with FPGA technology. Since joining Xylon in 1997, he has worked as an FPGA designer and project leader on a multitude of projects, including the projects that globally introduced the FPGA technology to many infotainment and ADAS development companies. In his current position as the head of Xylon marketing, Gordan participates in the definition of Xylon’s automotive video datalogging solutions and spends most of his time driving evangelical and enabling activities focused on integrating Xylon products in customer test and validation and video ADAS/AD applications.


Transformable ADAS/AD hardware platform dynamically changes during a drive

ADAS/AD platforms with fixed features may lack the flexibility needed in industrial vehicles due to different shapes, sensor setups and operation modes. We will demonstrate how Xylon uses programmable SoC chips in transformable hardware that enables flexible interconnections and sensor fusion from diverse setups, customized hardware accelerators for various tasks, and sensor function overloading, e.g. video cameras for 3D surround view become a stereo camera pair for monitoring the swinging excavator arm. Exchange of chip parts without a system reboot enables a failsafe and dynamic adaptation of full-perception controls, computer vision and AI hardware setups to the current machine’s operation mode.
