Pioneers of Safety and Security in the Automotive Realm of the Future

article imageVirtual simulation is set to play an increasingly important role in homologation, as the approval and certification process for vehicles is known. By enabling scalable testing to be performed, simulation provides a basis for tackling the complex and diverse tasks involved in validation and homologation and their accompanying scenarios. The safety and security requirements of this field are changing as rapidly as the technology itself. Accordingly, a succession of binding regulations from the UNECE and the EU's General Safety Regulation (GSR) are coming into effect.

Hyundai Mobis and Autotalks collaborate to implement cutting-edge V2X Technology for connected Cars

article imageHyundai Mobis and Autotalks set to unveil their latest joint effort: Hyundai Mobis' MTCU (Multi-functional Telematics Control Unit) connectivity modules. MTCU Gen1, Hyundai Mobis' most advanced connectivity module to date, supports Day-1 V2X services in all geographies. Powered by Autotalks' V2X chipset, the MTCU Gen1 sets the standard for high-performance, globally compatible automotive V2X. Day-1 applications alert drivers in dangerous, non-line-of-sight situations, for example to avert a possible collision with a vehicle or bicycle at an intersection. Additional applications include alerts about road hazards.

Waymo's Autonomous Vehicles are significantly safer than Human-driven ones, says new Research led by Swiss Re

article imageWaymo and Swiss Re partnered in 2022 to advance risk assessment methodologies and approaches to evaluating safety of autonomous vehicles. The new research led by Swiss Re shows Waymo’s autonomous vehicles are significantly safer than those driven by humans. In the over 3.8 million miles that Waymo drove without a human behind the steering wheel across San Francisco, CA and Phoenix, AZ, there were zero bodily injury claims and a significant reduction in the property damage claims frequency.
