Israeli chip designer Autotalks is working with Hyundai Mobis to develop MTCU (Multi-functional Telematics Control Unit) connectivity modules.

The first generation MTCU from Hyundai Mobis, the sixth largest global automotive supplier, supports Day-1 V2X services in all geographies using the Autotalks V2X chipset. 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.

As the demand for V2X continues to grow, primarily driven by the global NCAP safety roadmap, Hyundai Mobis is also using the Autotalks chipset to power its second generation connectivity module expected to be available in 2024. This will enable car manufacturers to offer advanced safety applications based on V2X communication.

The Gen2 MTCU module enables a range of use-cases from basic Day-1 to advanced Day-2 V2X applications. This is achieved through its inherent support for the latest global standards, dual-channel operation, and the integration of Functional Safety-grade implementation, enabling car actuation based on V2X data.

“Over half a decade of partnership with Hyundai Mobis has enabled us to take a central part in the MTCU development process and fuel the cutting-edge MTCU product lineup, setting new standards for safety and mobility in connected vehicle environments,” said Ram Shallom, VP Business Development & Marketing for APAC (Asia-Pacific) at Autotalks. “By using Autotalks’ advanced chipsets and Hyundai Mobis’ automotive safety expertise, we’re poised to help automakers realize the full potential of V2X technology. The product of this partnership will enable car manufacturers an effortless integration of V2X as a safety critical sensor, advancing ADAS reliability to its ultimate level.”

Dr. Joseph Kim, VP Product Planning Group at Hyundai Mobis in Korea says, “Partnership with the latest technology of Autotalks will bring a great advantage to the automotive industry. Our customers, future V2X drivers, pedestrians, and whomever on the roads will experience high performing autonomous driving features, safety and convenience while connected.”;
