Autotalks will present Craton, which it says is the world’s first VLSI for Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and related Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communication. The complete functionality of an On-Board-Unit (OBU) is supported by Craton and its RFIC companion Pluton which together form a true automotive-grade V2V transceiver.
Craton is capable of authenticating all over-the-air messages, eliminating the need for complex message selection algorithms. Its low and fixed engine latency enables meeting end-to-end application latency requirements with significant safety margins. Autotalks says Craton technology was tested extensively in many field trials and the communication range is far above any benchmark, supporting high speed movement and overcoming obstructions.
Craton and Pluton support worldwide operation, adhering to US, EU and Japanese standards and AEC-Q100 certification is expected for both components.
