Stoneridge and Valens Semiconductor work together to increase the road safety of trucks through advanced connectivity and vision solutions.
Valens Semiconductor and Stoneridge have partnered to develop a connectivity solution to address the visibility limitations experienced by trucks today. This connectivity solution is related to vision and safety systems in tractor trailers and address safety-critical issues in the trucking industry.
The companies have been working since 2020 on a long-reach connectivity solution to enable the delivery of high quality, zero-latency, error-free video.
The visibility limitations in today’s trucks, according to the announcement, are due in part to the inability for existing connectivity technologies to support the level of data transfer needed to appropriately address challenges within the truck and the required length of the link between the tractor and the trailer.
“Paired with Stoneridge cameras, this connectivity solution by Valens opens the door for the development of new technologies and product capabilities beyond our current portfolio that will continue to transform the commercial vehicle safety environment and reduce operating costs for the fleets,” said Jon DeGaynor, president and CEO of Stoneridge.
“The solutions we are working on, based on the Valens VA6000 chipset family, will open the door to a safer experience for truck drivers around the world relying on Stoneridge systems,” said Gideon Ben-Zvi, CEO of Valens Semiconductor. “Leveraging our unique connectivity technology, we aim to make the roads safer – both for the truck drivers and for the people around them.”
