DENSO Corporation has announced that it has acquired a 2 percent equity stake in eSOL Co., Ltd. eSOL specializes in the development of real-time embedded software solutions and Denso plans to use eSOL’s expertise in this area to develop software for the systems and products that are needed to facilitate automated driving.
In order to make automated driving more efficient and to use external data for safety, in-vehicle electronic products should be integrated to facilitate seamless control of the entire vehicle system. In recent years, in-vehicle systems have become increasingly complex, making it necessary to update, rewrite or add software to coordinate with new electronic systems and electronic control units for automated driving. eSOL will become an important partner for DENSO when it comes to developing software quickly and in the creation of next-generation electronic platforms through a technology advisor arrangement and personnel exchange.
eSOL was established in 1975, and is the premium partner of AUTOSAR (Automotive Open System Architecture), a consortium of automotive manufacturers and suppliers that standardizes automotive software platforms. In 2016, DENSO established a joint venture, AUBASS Co., Ltd., with eSOL and NEC Communication Systems, Ltd., to facilitate the use of complex in-vehicle software by automakers.
DENSO’s goal is to bring new value to the future of mobility by working on the development of in-vehicle electronic software, electronic systems, and electronic platforms. All these components will play a key role in connected and automated driving.
