At the Frankfurt Auto Show, TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. chairman and chief executive officer John Plant described the firm’s next generation of safety technologies to help enable semi-automated driving:
At the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Convergence 2012 conference in Detroit, Xilinx, Inc. unveiled its automotive ARM®-processor based Zynq™-7000 All Programmable system-on-a-chip (SoC) platform, which targets next-generation advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
STMicroelectronics and Mobileye N.V. announced that the two companies are co-developing the next generation of their System-on-Chip processor for the vision-based driver-assistance segment of the automotive market.
MIPS Technologies, Inc. said Mobileye has licensed MIPS’ multi-threaded multiprocessing MIPS32®1004K™Coherent Processing System (CPS). Mobileye will incorporate the 1004K CPS in its next generation EyeQ™ vision-based SoC for use in driver assistance systems. Mobileye uses multi-threaded MIPS32 34K™cores in its current generation EyeQ2™SoC. Development of the third generation SoC will begin immediately.

As state legislators across the United States enact laws banning talking on the phone or texting while driving, Mobileye has put its focus on providing the technology which can assist a driver regardless of the distraction.
