Desay SV Automotive to develop new L4, L5 autonomous vehicle technologies and automotive cybersecurity in Singapore
28 January 2019
Multinational automotive electronics supplier Desay SV Automotive plans to establish new R&D teams to develop frontier technologies in Level 4 and Level 5 vehicle autonomy and automotive cybersecurity exclusively in Singapore.
Supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), the R&D presence will augment Desay SV’s Automotive Vehicle Technologies (AVT) and Advanced Development (AD) divisions located at [email protected], Singapore. No other Desay SV R&D teams outside Singapore will be developing the two streams of frontier automotive technologies.
AVT in Singapore is slated to be Desay SV’s sole global upstream R&D Center to develop and prototype new technologies for fully autonomous Level 4 driverless vehicles and for sentient Level 5 vehicles. These new technologies will be adapted and incorporated- at Desay SV’s headquarters in Huizhou, Guangdong, China into new commercial products with current Level 2 chip-controlled autonomy to Level 4 vehicle autonomy.
AD in Singapore will seek and develop next-generation technologies to augment Desay SV’s in-vehicle products, as well as become Desay SV’s only AD team globally to focus on three competencies: cyber-physical system security (CSS), in-vehicle network (IVN) and wireless multimedia communications (WMC).
Formerly a Sino-German joint venture, today Desay SV Automotive operates five R&D centers and two production plants in China, Europe, Japan, and Singapore with a collective workforce of more than 4,000 employees. It has established long-term partnerships with leading vehicle manufacturers including Volkswagen, Toyota, Mazda, Nissan, Honda, Volvo, Caterpillar, Great Wall Motors, and Chery.
