STMicroelectronics and Autotalks team up for V2X mass deployments
Both partners will discuss that point during CESA 3.0 in Paris.
The collaboration enables both parties to leverage complementary technologies and resources. Autotalks brings extensive semiconductor, system, and software experience in V2X and associated know-how in security, mobility, communication, RF, signal processing, and positioning. ST offers chip-design expertise in areas such as communications and navigation, with advanced manufacturing capabilities, in addition to extensive strategic partnerships and longevity with all of the automotive tiers to enable broader market evaluation and accelerate adoption of the next-generation chipset.
IHS forecasts that worldwide vehicle-to-vehicle communication sales will amount to nearly 700,000 units in 2017, rising to 5.6 million units in 2020 and as much as 55 million in 2025.
The vast majority of these sales will be in the US and Europe - based on DSRC and the ITS G5 standard- as well as Japan, including both original equipment and aftermarket units. .
