STMicroelectronics showed its latest technologies and solutions at CES 2018. The company showcased its capabilities in AR/VR/MR, Voice Control, Imaging, Artificial Intelligence, Wireless Charging, Safety, Connected Technologies, and Services for Mobility.
ST contributes many of the key technologies to cars and trucks as they drive toward full autonomy. V2X (Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure) is an important technology for these future cars and ST showed DSRC-based V2X solution and will use Virtual Reality to create an experiential 360° view from the driver’s seat in the hospitality suite. Other Smart Driving technologies will illustrate ST’s High Dynamic Range (HDR) LED flicker-free camera system and driver-monitoring application for increased safety. And visitors can hear how ST automotive processors and power amplifiers can implement an Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS) that can make quiet electric vehicles less acoustically invisible to pedestrians and other drivers.
Apart from that ST demonstrated its capabilities in a wireless audio system that uses high-performance MEMS speakers for AR/VR glasses. The company also showcased tools that allow Neural networks to run on its STM32 microcontrollers, as well as on a dedicated System-on-Chip (SoC) that enables different flavors of Deep Convolutional Neural Networks (DCNN) for computer-vision tasks. ST also highlighted its technologies for smart automation and robotics in a humanoid robot containing almost 50 ST products.
