Autotalks teams up with Taiwan’s RoyalTek E-mail

Autotalks, an Israeli semiconductor company that makes vehicle-to-vehicle communication systems for use in autonomous driving cars, and Taiwan’s RoyalTek, a maker of global positioning systems (GPS) and satellite navigation technology, have joined forces to improve road safety.

The two companies made their announcement in January at the consumer electronics tradeshow CES 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada, US.

The companies said they will develop a new vehicle-topedestrian product in which cars equipped with Autotalks’ V2X semiconductor chips will be able to “talk” to pedestrians who use RoyalTek’s OMEN device. Designed as a phone case, the OMEN is equipped with chips that will send alerts to pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists on their phones when cars get dangerously close and there is a risk of a crash. The joint product is currently at the prototype stage.

The algorithms that define what constitutes a risky or dangerous situation still need to be worked out, along with what form the alert will take – at the moment it is a visual alert on the phone, but a vibration or ring could be added to increase its impact, Autotalks said. The product will also be hacker-proof, allowing regular consumer cellphones to be used without compromising their privacy or security.
