  • 13:30 - 13:50 Real-time Lidar and Camera Integration for Autonomous Navigation using MATLAB Orkeny Zovathi, Application Engineer at SciEngineer

    Lidar and Camera sensors are highly effective for autonomous systems due to their complementary capabilities: Lidars provide precise distance measurements, while cameras offer rich visual data understand the environment.

    This presentation explores a Lidar-camera based real-time mapping and object detection workflow using MATLAB. Leveraging MATLAB’s advanced toolboxes and functions, we develop a system that integrates Lidar data and camera images to construct detailed environmental maps and accurately identify objects. The approach combines Lidar’s spatial accuracy with the camera’s texture and color information, enabling effective 3D reconstruction and object classification. Experimental results demonstrate the system’s capability in diverse environments, highlighting the benefits of sensor fusion for enhanced performance in autonomous navigation tasks.

We will discuss the core principles and methodologies, including real-time data monitoring, predictive algorithms, and seamlessly incorporating these technologies into existing automation frameworks. I will highlight the critical role of predictive maintenance in improving energy efficiency and sustainability. By ensuring the optimal performance of critical assets, energy companies can significantly reduce energy consumption and emissions, aligning with global sustainability goals. The presentation aims to equip industry professionals with a comprehensive understanding of predictive maintenance and its transformative potential in industrial automation and energy management.

  • 14:15 - 14:35 Coffee & Networking
  • 14:35 - 15:05 Development of an FPGA-Based Neural Processing Unit for Hyperspectral Image Analysis in Planetary Defense Applications Gabor Farkas, Founder of CSP INNOVATION & Gabor Fazekas, Research engineer at NKE Doctoral School of Military Sciences

    Planetary defense encompasses strategies and technologies for detecting and mitigating potential asteroid impacts on Earth. Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is an invaluable tool in this field, providing detailed spectral data for analyzing the composition and structure of asteroids. This research focuses on enhancing planetary defense capabilities by developing a sophisticated hyperspectral image processing pipeline using model-based design methodologies in MATLAB.
    The processed hyperspectral data is utilized to train a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) designed for precise classification and analysis of asteroid materials. To meet real-time processing demands in space missions, the trained CNN is embedded into an FPGA using MATLAB’s HDL Coder, resulting in a customized Neural Processing Unit (NPU). This NPU harnesses the parallel processing power of FPGAs, ensuring high-speed and efficient onboard data analysis.
    The proposed system aims to significantly improve the accuracy and speed of asteroid composition analysis, contributing to better-informed decisions in planetary defense initiatives.
    This presentation aims to showcase the detailed workflow involved in developing such a device, providing insights into each stage of the process from initial design to final implementation.

  • 15:10 - 15:30 Enabling Applied AI: Streamlining AI-Driven Systems with Deployment Solutions Jia Lin Hu, Application Engineer at SciEngineer
    This presentation explores the transformative potential of applying AI models across diverse engineering domains.
    The speaker will showcase how deployment solutions facilitate the seamless integration of AI models into various systems, including embedded devices, enterprise systems, edge computing, cloud platforms, and desktop applications. Attendees will discover how these tools can drive innovation in their engineering projects and gain practical insights on leveraging them to enable applied AI in their specific fields.
