Israel-based Autotalks says its partnership with STMicroelectronics is bearing fruit in the V2X market, with customers set to benefit from complementary technologies, and improved quality management and supply.
The companies are co-operating to deliver a mass market-optimized, second generation V2X chipset for widespread deployment by 2017. “ST has great expertise in this area,” says Autotalks Director of Marketing Ram Shallom. “There are synergies all over the place - the offering is very powerful.” The key driver for the technology is safety, Shallom insists. But the technology also has the potential to save “billions of US dollars”.
