STMicroelectronics and Autotalks Announce V2X Chipset for Connected Road Safety
October 07, 2015
STMicroelectronics (News - Alert), a global semiconductor manufacturer, and Autotalks, a V2X1-chipset developer, are preparing to release a second-generation V2X chipset and will begin design-ins with leading vendors of Smart-Driving systems in 2016. The new chipset achieves low power consumption, high temperature range, high integration and efficiency, and is designed to meet the rigorous requirements for safety-critical systems and autonomous vehicles. The two companies began working toward this in 2014.
“V2X is a key to Smart-Driving and is about to transform drivers’ expectations in terms of safety, congestion, and environmental impact,” said Nir Sasson, CEO, Autotalks. “Working with ST, we are already preparing for the next generation of V2X chips to support even greater security, performance, functionality and affordability.”
V2X technology connects vehicles to other vehicles and infrastructure within wireless range for safety and mobility applications like sharing advanced warnings of unseen hazards or coordinating with traffic signals to minimize congestion. Leading auto brands are currently working with technology partners to finalize V2X systems that will be installed into new vehicles at the factory starting in 2017. The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced in May 2015 a series of steps to speed development of life-saving technologies, accelerating the schedule of the mandate to install V2V on all new vehicles.
Using advanced cryptographic engines, the chipset introduces verification capacity for 100 percent of all messages sent over the air, while minimizing security risks from unauthorized access. Autotalks’ V2X technology and system expertise, combined with ST's Teseo multi-constellation GNSS3 technology, brings a superior V2X solution offering.
“We are on schedule to complete this Smart-Driving project within our published 2017 timeframe, realizing best-in-class performance and feature integration that will ultimately lead to safe and eco-friendly driving experience,” said Antonio Radaelli, Infotainment BU Director, Micro & Infotainment Division, Automotive Product Group, STMicroelectronics. “Our design philosophy also looks forward to forthcoming intelligent transport concepts such as autonomous vehicles, creating a springboard for our customers to lead the drive towards smarter, safer, sustainable mobility.”
