Bangalore, India: 14 May 2015: The focus of ESSS 2015 is to create an established ecosystem for safety and security practices that will encourage world-class embedded designs, originating from India, that fully comply with stringent industrial standards. The summit is organized by LDRA Technology Pvt. Ltd., the primary leader in standards compliance, automated software verification, source code analysis and test tools. It will bring together industry leaders and like-minded partners to discuss and exchange views on current and future issues, initiatives and trends in embedded development
ESSS 2015 is supported by the aerospace industry body SIATI and the semiconductor industry body IESA. Speakers from the automotive regulator ARAI Pune and defense avionics regulator CEMILAC Bangalore will be a major attraction.
The embedded systems market in India has the potential to triple in size to about $14.4 billion in 2015 from $4.95 billion in 2009 but there are some areas of concern that have been restricting growth, such as the absence of mature electronic prototyping and an electronic manufacturing ecosystem, restrictive hardware import laws, inadequate infrastructure for testing and certifications and a shortage of industry specific professionals. Speakers representing industries such as aerospace, defense, automotive and embedded system security will be addressing the issues and opportunities to successfully tap into the growing market.
Key speakers at ESSS 2015 include renowned industry leaders such as Mr. S Karthikeyan – Scientist ‘F’, Group Director (Systems), CEMILAC, India; Mr. Anand Deshpande – Deputy Director and Head of Automotive Electronics Department, ARAI, India; Mr. Sanjay Gupta – Research and Development Director, Freescale Semiconductor, India; Mr. Serge Plagnol – Senior FAE, Green Hills Software, France; Mr. Bill StClair – US Operations Director, LDRA, USA; Dr. Mike Bartley – Founder & CEO, Test and Verification Solutions Ltd., UK; Mr. Mark Richardson – Field Application Engineer, LDRA, UK; Mr. Pierre Vincent – Technical Consultant, Esterel Technologies, France; Mr. Ian Hennell – Operations Director, LDRA, UK; Mr. Venkat Rao Vesangi – Engineering Manager, Texas Instruments, India; Mr. Suneel Santharam – Senior Product Consultant, IBM, India and Mr. Murugan P Marudappan – Client Technical Professional, IBM, India.
Ian Hennell, Operations Director at LDRA, said, “A world-class embedded security and safety system will enable Indian companies to recognize the importance of certification as a critical factor for their corporate growth. The forum will offer a compelling solution and understanding on the growth prospect of the embedded safety and security systems in India.”
Together, industry partners: IBM, National Instruments, Ansys Esterel, Texas Instruments, Green Hills, MathWorks and Mentor Graphics have agreed on the value of ESSS to support the Indian Government initiative “Make in India” to inspire world-class Indian design and to promote the growth of the embedded industry. The summit identifies the most contemporary issues on embedded system development and will present the latest information and future trends from the international embedded community.
Shinto Joseph, Operations and Sales Director, LDRA India, added, “ESSS is part of a larger industry initiative – CEDP (Certification Ecosystem Development Program) by LDRA, which will be announced, together with our partners, in June 2015. ESSS 2015 is progressing in the right direction. We already have an impressive and growing list of participants that further demonstrates the need and scope of an international embedded system. The summit also includes an impressive list of industry speakers together with top-class paper submissions which, in combination, will present views on cutting-edge developments, ideas and trends at the highest level.”
