In “Safer Driving”, ST will demonstrate an image sensor it has developed for car cameras that play a vital role in Autonomous Driving and ADAS. The new sensor features High Dynamic Range technology and removes LED flicker. In the demonstration, the sensor captures and displays bright and dark portions of a miniaturized road scene simultaneously.
For active-safety applications that prevent road accidents, ST will preview the safety combo sensor it is currently developing. This sensor, which will play a vital role in vehicle attitude control, accurately measures the behavior and attitude of a vehicle during sharp turns and on slippery roads and steep slopes. It contains a MEMS gyroscope, a MEMS accelerometer, and an ASIC integrated in one chip, with selectable configuration for each sensor to fit the specific application, such as skidding, rollover, or inclination sensing.
ST will also show a high-performance vision processor for ADAS it has jointly developed with Mobileye. The processor constantly monitors the driver’s field of view, enabling vision-based driving assistance including vehicle/pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, active headlight control, and traffic-sign and road-condition recognition.
In “More Connected Driving,” ST will for the first time exhibit a development board equipped with its satellite-tracking IC and a chipset, jointly developed with Autotalks, for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) communication. By fusing V2X and satellite-tracking technologies, this solution aims to ease traffic congestion and reduce traffic accidents.
ST is prepared for a new era of car connectivity, where automobiles connect to mobile devices and the Cloud. At Automotive World 2017, ST will demonstrate smartphones communicating with the car infotainment system using its Accordo 5.
