STMicroelectronics and Autotalks Fuse Satellite Navigation with Vehicle-to-Vehicle and -Infrastructure Communication (V2X)

STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, and Israel-based Autotalks , a V2X-chipset market pioneer and leader in the first wave of V2X deployments, have announced their fusion of GNSS technology and V2X ranging. The new “V2X-Enhanced GNSS” ensures authenticated and secure vehicle localization for extreme accuracy and reliability of positioning information, especially in urban canyons, tunnels, and parking structures, where accurate absolute and relative positioning—to other vehicles and infrastructure—is critical in progress toward semi- and fully-autonomous vehicles. Autotalks’ and ST’s development of V2X-Enhanced GNSS builds on the companies’ existing successes in co-developing a world-class V2X chipset that connects vehicles to other vehicles and infrastructure within wireless range for safety and mobility applications. The promise of efficient, coordinated, and safe driving of autonomous cars can result only from the accurate positioning that the fusion of GNSS with V2X technology achieves.”
