Delphi Automotive made a strategic investment in an Israel-based leader in signal processing capability – a key enabler for the expanding connectivity and computing needs in vehicles – Valens
Valens is the developer of HDBaseT, the global standard for transmission of ultra-high definition video, audio, Ethernet and controls data. Valens introduced its HDBaseT Automotive technology to address the challenges of the connected car, including the increasing amount of bandwidth and wiring necessary required for infotainment and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
Delphi and Valens will be working closely together to advance solutions for in-vehicle connectivity based on HDBaseT Automotive and Delphi’s technologies. To further support the commercial partnership, Delphi made a minority investment in Valens.
Delphi signed a commercial partnership agreement with otonomo, an Israel-based technology company developing a data marketplace for automakers.
otonomo’s connected car marketplace seamlessly and securely connects car data from any OEM to service and application providers such as insurance, fleet transportation, vehicle repair services, emergency services and expense control apps. By aggregating, anonymizing, and organizing car data, otonomo’s marketplace provides OEMs with full control over monetizing the valuable data from connected vehicles.
otonomo complements Delphi’s existing data management capabilities of Control-Tec for data acquisition and Movimento for over-the-air updates. Delphi will offer services from all three companies as a part of a connected car ecosystem, unlocking significant value for OEMs.
Delphi is supporting the commercial partnership by making a minority investment in otonomo.
Delphi completed a strategic agreement with high frequency connectivity company Rosenberger to enhance capabilities in high-speed data transmission.
“Connected vehicle platforms require robust electrical architectures to transfer greater amounts of data at increasingly faster rates and this partnership allows Delphi to work with another industry leader to support common standards for automotive Ethernet architecture,” said Majdi Abulaban, senior vice president and president of the Delphi electrical/electronic architecture segment and president of the engineered components group.
Delphi and Rosenberger have agreed to engage in a technical partnership and will collaborate on high-performance, cost-effective, high-speed Ethernet solutions for the transportation market.
