CITRIS Seminar: Electrostatic Discharge Causes Soft and Hard Failures: How to Characterize, Model and Protect?

David Pommerenke
Professor and IEEE Fellow

Abstract: ESD can cause soft failures and damaging hard failures.  To ensure functionality of a system which is exposed to ESD, the threat level, the coupling path, and the robustness of the ICs needs to be known.  Based on this, protection methods can be implemented.  This is... Read More

CPSRC Seminar: Planning via Constrained Markov Decision Processes

Alessandro Pinto
Technical Fellow

Abstract: In this talk I will retrace our research journey in the area of autonomous and intelligent systems. I will then present a high-level architecture for autonomy and dive into the technical details of a planning system we have implemented to bridge the gap between mission and motion level... Read More
