Aquantia, Bosch, Continental, Nvidia, and Volkswagen have formed the formation of the Networking for Autonomous Vehicles (NAV) Alliance.
Self-driving cars of the future will have a lot of computing power, which means they’ll also need fast networking. So five tech and car companies have teamed up to form the Networking for Autonomous Vehicles (NAV) Alliance. The initial members of the San Jose, California-based alliance include Aquantia, Bosch, Continental, Nvidia, and Volkswagen.Chips. for autonomous vehicles are expected to generate a $30 billion market by 2030, according to analyst firm Raymond James.At the core of the alliance is Aquantia’s chips, which enable multi-gig ethernet networking, which can transfer data at a rate of up to 10 gigabits a second. That’s necessary in self-driving cars because they need to transfer huge amounts of data coming in from multiple cameras and sensors, Aquantia founder Phil Delansay said an earlier interview.Autonomous driving demands a new breed of in-vehicle networking solutions that can transmit data between the increasing number of high-resolution sensors, cameras, and processing engines at faster speeds. The alliance will drive the ecosystem development required for the next generation of multi-gig ethernet networking in vehicles.
