STMicroelectronics: STMicroelectronics and Autotalks Fuse Satellite Navigation with Vehicle-to-Vehicle and -Infrastructure Communication (V2X)

· Combining GNSS[1]with V2X[2]ranging creates "V2X-Enhanced GNSS" to
ensure security, accuracy, and reliability of positioning information in
difficult urban environments

· Lane-level accuracy in urban canyons, tunnels, and parking structures
will enable the development of new applications, such as autonomous on-street
and in-garage parking and available-spot identification

Geneva, Switzerland and Kfar Netter, Israel, May 18, 2016
-STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving
customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, and Israel-based
Autotalks, a V2X-chipset market pioneer and leader in the first wave of V2X
deployments, have announced their fusion of GNSS technology and V2X ranging.
The new "V2X-Enhanced GNSS" ensures authenticated and secure vehicle
localization for extreme accuracy and reliability of positioning information,
especially in urban canyons, tunnels, and parking structures, where accurate
absolute and relative positioning-to other vehicles and infrastructure-is
critical in progress toward semi- and fully-autonomous vehicles.

Autotalks' and ST's development of V2X-Enhanced GNSS builds on the companies'
existing successes in co-developing a world-class V2X chipset that connects
vehicles to other vehicles and infrastructure within wireless range for
safety and mobility applications. The promise of efficient, coordinated, and
safe driving of autonomous cars can result only from the accurate positioning
that the fusion of GNSS with V2X technology achieves.

"Autotalks fully recognizes that autonomous driving requires equal measures of
reliability, accuracy, and security and no driver would sacrifice any of
these," said Hagai Zyss, CEO of Autotalks.

"Our solutions have been architected from the beginning to enable automated
driving and because we recognize positioning for autonomous vehicles as
critical, Autotalks, with ST, continues to optimize accurate V2X
positioning-and we believe that our customers understand the value and

V2X-Enhanced GNSS technology, when coupled with V2X-enabled infrastructure,
can uniquely provide absolute positioning to vehicles to assure lane-level
accuracy. This precision improves navigation in urban canyons and tunnels and
is also being used to develop myriad new applications, such as autonomous
on-street and in-garage parking and available-spot identification.

"To fully realize the safety, convenience, and other benefits of autonomous
driving, we need confidence in the security, reliability, and accuracy of the
communications between our vehicle and its surroundings to know precisely how
close we are to things, whether-and in what direction-they are moving, and
what they are telling us-such as when there are roadworks or an accident
ahead," said Antonio Radaelli, Director, Infotainment, Automotive Digital
Division, STMicroelectronics. "Building upon our successful collaboration
with Autotalks, we are combining ST's state-of-the-art positioning technology
and roadmap for high-precision Automotive GNSS supporting satellite signal
authentication with Autotalks' expertise in advanced signal-processing
algorithms for ranging, to smoothly pave the road to secure, accurate, and
reliable V2X-Enhanced GNSS."

Field trials in an Asian country, monitored by a government agency, are being
used to test this technology in 2016.

Technical notes for editors

V2X ranging between vehicles and roadside infrastructure provides an
additional level of absolute accuracy beyond that offered by GNSS, which can
vary significantly because of atmospheric signal interference, the number and
angle of constellation satellites in view, multi-path reflection, antenna
configuration, and other factors. US government data suggest that a
high-quality Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Standard Positioning
Service (SPS) receiver provides better than 3.5 meters (11.5 feet) horizontal
accuracy. Connection of GNSS with a secure V2X chipset, and fusion of the two
technologies, GNSS and V2X ranging, offer a trusted positioning reference, in
which vehicle localization is authenticated and secure, as well as the link
between GNSS and the V2X chipset.
