Smarter vehicles have become an extension of our ever-connected lives: cameras, sensors, controls and entertainment, all form part of today’s driving experience.
The evolution towards more advanced and sophisticated ADAS features and higher levels of driving automation is creating heavy data bandwidth demands on the on-board communication network. Traditional communication protocols are struggling to meet the bandwidth requirements of the multitude of sensors and subsystems needed for ADAS.
The HDBaseT Automotive technology is the solution to the in-vehicle connectivity challenges. It is a derivative of HDBaseT, a mature, proven and standardized technology for the transmission of high-definition audio and video, controls, Ethernet, USB and even power in the consumer electronics and professional audiovisual markets. This combination of high bandwidth, high performance, feature-rich capabilities, and an existing infrastructure makes an HDBaseT solution ideal for in-vehicle networking.
STMicroelectronics and Valens have worked closely to enable HDBaseT Automotive technology to be built into the next-generation of connected cars. The highly efficient technology optimizes in-vehicle connectivity by enabling the transmission of reliable 6 Gbps high-throughput infotainment, road safety, and automotive-control content over a low-cost infrastructure with near-zero latency. Valens, as the inventor of HDBaseT and founder of the HDBaseT Alliance, brings the technology and expertise to accomplish the goal of commercializing HDBaseT-enabled vehicles; STMicroelectronics contributes with its extensive design and manufacturing experience and in-depth knowledge of compliance with the strict automotive quality and reliability requirements.
