Daimler has announced that the company will be collaborating with Valens in order to enhance in-car connectivity by incorporating HDBaseT Automotive in future models made by the leading automotive manufacturer.
Daimler is one of the front-runners when it comes to in-vehicle connectivity and chose to adopt HDBaseT Automotive as its technology of choice in order to maintain its edge when it comes to the performance of advanced infotainment, ADAS, and telematics systems. Valens is the company that invented the HDBaseT and is also the founder of the HDBaseT Alliance, which acts as a platform for bringing together technology and expertise in order to help commercialize HDBaseT-enabled vehicles in the near future.
Speaking about the collaboration, Dror Jerushalmi, the CEO of Valens said that the company has been at the helm of a revolution in the field of digital connectivity in the AV sector, and is looking forward to replicating this success in the automotive sector. He said that Valens was honored to be chosen by Daimler as its partner for optimizing in-vehicle connectivity.
Dr. Jan Bauer of Daimler said tha tit is one of Daimler’s key goals to be a technological leader when it comes to all kinds of technologies – including safety technologies, ‘green’ technologies, autonomous driving and connectivity. HDBaseT Automotive is therefore a perfect fit as it offers several benefits to users including architectural benefits, reliability and robustness thus enhancing the driving experience for customers.
HDBaseT Automotive is so far the only technology that has proved to be capable of transmitting high-speed video and audio, USB, data, and more, with native networking capabilities using just a single unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable for up to 15m (50ft). The technology also facilitates daisy-chaining and multistreaming, to simplify and optimize in-vehicle connectivity.
