CRATON2 is created for connected and autonomous vehicles and ensures the highest level of secure communication
Kfar Netter, Israel, October 6th, 2016 – Autotalks, the leader in V2X communication chipsets will launch CRATON2, its 2nd generation V2X solution, at ITS World Congress in Melbourne Australia. CRATON2, specifically designed for autonomous vehicles, is the most advanced and secure V2X communication solution with embedded Hardware Security Module (eHSM) and V2X cybersecurity firewall. It assures trusted information for safety applications, now and for decades to come.
V2X communication adds confidence, certainty and safety to connected and self-driving vehicles as it helps prevent car accidents, especially in situations of non-line-of-sight, rough weather or poor lighting conditions. It also helps improve mobility as it enables traffic coordination, resulting in higher road utilization and lower emissions. Leading car manufacturers are currently working with technology partners to finalize V2X systems to be built into new vehicles.
CRATON2, designed by Autotalks and manufactured by STMicroelectronics’ top-quality process, meets the strictest Automotive reliability requirements. CRATON2 offers the highest level of security. It includes multiple defense layers, such as secure boot, secure low-latency signing, line-rate verification of the entire V2X communication link, and secure V2X firewall. In addition, Autotalks’ cryptographic-agile security engines support field upgrade for assuring security for decades.
Autotalks’ V2X solution has a state-of-the-art IEEE802.11p modem with leading communication range that works in high-mobility vehicular environment. In addition, it supports IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, enabling WIFI service outside the vehicle for supplementary value-added services. It can support dual-antennas for flexible installation, and even support concurrent channel operation (WIFI and 11p).
CRATON2 was created to easily adapt to any application and vehicle architecture. Its high level of integration reduces development and certification effort and ensures quick time-to-market. The pre-integration provides assurance for correct functioning, secure operation and shorter development schedules. CRATON2 integrates all V2X system blocks, and includes a powerful dual ARM processor to provide the smallest V2X solution footprint.
“Autotalks is proud to launch its next generation chipset at ITS World Congress.” said Hagai Zyss, CEO of Autotalks. “It is a major breakthrough increasing Autotalks technological and market leadership”.
