Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe (FSEU) and Autotalks Ltd have announced a cooperative agreement to develop a vehicle-to-vehicle communication processor for OEMs and Tier 1 makers by 2012.

Autotalks' vehicle-to-vehicle technology, which combines optimized vehicular modem, advanced security, enhanced positioning and safety application processor, uses Fujitsu's silicon technology solutions and production facilities. By providing complete and enhanced feature sets for OEMs and Tier 1 makers, this partnership will enable deployment of vehicle-to-vehicle communication units.

"We are delighted to be working with Autotalks and are dedicated to bringing our customers the very best technological differentiators to help fuel innovation and development," stated Mark Ellins, director for common technologies and functions at FSEU.

Autotalks' integrated vehicle-to-vehicle communication processor uses its own technologies, developed to increase communication reliability, and provides the most accurate information for safety applications. The technology was tested in many field trials worldwide.

The communication processor supports the U.S., EU and Japan specifications. "The flexibility of Autotalks' communication processor and our experience with vehicle-to-vehicle installation aspects enable us to address different configurations for OEMs and Tier 1 makers in the most comprehensive way and cost-effective manner," concluded Onn Haran, CTO at Autotalks.
