Denso is teaming up with eSol and NEC to develop superfast networks for connected cars.
The three companies will form a joint venture to develop basic software that can support high-speed data communication, high-quality security, and high-performance microcomputers, in order to advance in-vehicle systems used for automated driving and other control actions.
The joint venture will provide easy-to-use basic software to help automakers and electronic control unit suppliers increase their quality and efficiency when developing products.
The joint venture, names Aubass, will be located in Tokyo, Japan and will begin operation May 2016.
The companies say they decided to form this joint venture because each company “excels” in the technologies that will be needed for in-vehicle electronic products, and together they have sufficient experience to develop automotive basic software.
By integrating the technologies in which the three companies are strong, the joint venture will provide highly competitive basic software, say the companies in a statement.
