As automotive telematics continues to enhance driving performance and experience, it’s creating opportunities for OEMs and the extended supply chain.


We’re seeing huge amounts of innovation taking place in this field, helping to improve digital cockpits, in-vehicle connectivity, security and more.

With 5G now being rolled out around the world we can expect these developments to ramp up further – with the global market projected to be worth $320bn by 2026.

But, as companies seek to seize these opportunities, they must balance the development time and costs, and mitigate risk by ensuring the highest levels of safety.

In this 60 minute webinar, hosted by OpenSynergy, Mobica, ACTIA and NXP, we will explore:

  • Requirements and challenges in the telematics industry
  • How virtualisation addresses today’s challenges in the industry
  • NXP Automotive i.MX 8X Application Processors for Telematics
  • The highly specialised engineering competency that enables scalability

These companies will also discuss their recent collaboration on a Telematics Control Unit (TCU) - an embedded system that connects a vehicle’s external and internal world. The TCU provides a platform for multiple applications, including services such as eCall crash notification, stolen vehicle tracking and wireless access point as well as vehicle data exchange for diagnostic purposes.
