Autotalks and STMicroelectronics Show World’s First Mass-Market-Ready 2nd-Generation V2X Solution during CES 2018

  • DSRC-based V2X solution exceeds all mandated USDOT requirements
  • Highlights the seamless integration of V2X with telematics while showing forward collision warning and three other V2V/V2I use cases
  • Also use Virtual Reality to show Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure benefits in common hazardous driving situations: highway, urban road, intersection, and side road

Consumer Electronics Show, Las Vegas, Nevada – January 4, 2018 – Autotalks, the global leader in V2X (Vehicle to Everything) communication chipsets, and STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, are working together to save lives and improve mobility on the roads through the use of DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communication) -based Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communications technology. The partners will highlight both Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) use cases during CES® 2018 in Las Vegas.

The showing, a product of a multi-year collaboration, is the world’s first mass-market-ready 2nd-generation DSRC-based V2X solution. Featuring ST’s state-of-the-art Telemaco3 telematics platform and Autotalks’ CRATON2 chipset, which is the most advanced and secure V2X communication solution in the form of a commercial module, the demonstration will show how the now-commercially-ready technology can be used to avoid collisions, describe road conditions, and indicate distance to important infrastructure, such as EV charging stations. The DSRC-based technology today exceeds all existing US Department of Transportation (USDOT) specifications.

“Using the technology we’re highlighting now, DSRC is ready for mass deployment with the ultimate goal of maximizing safety and mobility for both human-driven and autonomous vehicles,” said Hagai Zyss, CEO of Autotalks. “Our demonstration with ST is further evidence of the strong V2X ecosystem Autotalks has established in bringing next-generation automotive-qualified solutions to connected and autonomous vehicles today.”

“The cooperation with Autotalks is a strong component in delivering on ST’s Smart Driving mission, which combines all of the elements to make automotive systems safer, greener, and more connected,” said Fabio Marchió, General Manager, Microcontrollers and Infotainment Division, Automotive and Discrete Group, STMicroelectronics. “ST’s efforts have contributed to assuring the seamless integration of the CRATON2-based V2X module with ST’s advanced technologies for connected cars, including automotive secure processors, GNSS receivers, and sensors.“

Two V2X showcases, one emphasizing the USDOT-compliant, commercially-ready DSRC-based solution and the other, a Virtual Reality experience that allows visitors to “drive” a V2X-equiped vehicle so they can see the technology’s benefits while “driving through” multiple common hazardous road scenarios, are on show by invitation-only. Please contact your ST representative to schedule a showing.
