Communication between autonomous vehicles is crucial. With Valeo's telematics platform and Autotalks' automotive chipset, the combined efforts of these two companies could hasten the time it takes for us to see autonomous vehicles become commonplace.
Autotalks, a company developing in V2X (Vehicle to Everything) communication solutions, will display global V2X capabilities integrated in Telematics platform at the upcoming CES 2019 alongside Valeo at CES 2019.
Autotalks helps reduce collisions on roadways and improve mobility with its automotive qualified chipsets. The chipsets offer secure and high performing global V2X communication for autonomous vehicles. Their technology, which is to be mass deployed in the coming years, complements the information coming from other sensors, specifically in non-line-of-sight scenarios, rough weather or poor lighting conditions. It significantly improves overall road safety, effectively coordinating vehicles, self-driving cars, motorcyclists and pedestrians.
V2X technology will significantly increase safety by extending the perception of the car for better anticipation of the potential road dangers. By enabling constant exchange of information between vehicles and with the infrastructure, V2X is one of the current technologies in the move towards cooperative driving and to globally optimize Smart City traffic flow and services.
“We are excited to have our chipset inside Valeo’s Telematics platform, after a quick and straightforward integration with the NAD and the platform’s software,” said Hagai Zyss, CEO of Autotalks. “Autotalks is proud to collaborate with Valeo on a truly secure mass-market global V2X system.”
“The objective of our collaboration with Autotalks is to propose to our customers a worldwide solution based on a single hardware platform and a single V2X software stack that can be configured for DSRC/ITS*-G5 or C-V2X(PC5) and switch from one mode to the other”, said Laurent Zimmermann, Vice President Connected Car Product Group at Valeo. “This future-proof V2X solution, combined with the ADAS portfolio of Valeo, will be a solid foundation towards the path of the autonomous car and safer transportation.”
