AISIN, ADVICS, JTEKT, and DENSO to form J-QuAD DYNAMICS to develop integrated control software for automated driving
Aisin Seiki Co., Ltd., ADVICS Co., Ltd., JTEKT Corporation (JTEKT) and DENSO Corporation agreed to form J-QuAD DYNAMICS to develop integrated control software that will be used for automated driving, vehicle motion control, and other related functions. The new company will be established in April 2019; in August 2018, the four companies announced their basic agreement to establish a joint venture. (Earlier post.)
To achieve safe, secure, and widespread automated driving, a more sophisticated integrated vehicle control system is required to coordinate sensors, brakes, and steering systems. The software enables vehicles to better manage acceleration, turning, and braking, which is critical for future mobility solutions. Founded by the four investing companies, the new company will develop software and provide engineering services to accelerate the development of integrated vehicle control systems for automakers in Japan and throughout the world.
AISIN, ADVICS, JTEKT, and DENSO will combine their unique strengths and technical expertise on automated driving, vehicle motion control, and related functions to develop this software-based solution.
