TITAN automotive modules can quickly provide automotive connectivity, high-precision positioning, short-range communication and Infotainment services for automotive. It can be widely used in the core components of smart cars such as T-Box, TCU, ADAS, OBU, IVI, OTA and so on.
In addition to automotive applications, TITAN covers various domains and is proud to collaborate with industry leaders to provide reliable connectivity modules in word, such as e-bikes&e-scooters, Marine&Boats, Agriculture, Drones, Trains, etc.
Based on two different norms ITS-G5/DSRC and C-V2X (depending on regions adoption) broadcasting on the 5,9 GHz band, V2X is a promising technology that will bring more safety for all road users. A vehicle equipped with a V2X module can inform directly the other vehicles of its itinerary, by sharing its position, direction, and speed in the surroundings from several hundred meters between vehicles up to 1 km (with infrastructure). This permits to avoid collisions at intersections or because of blind spots and permits also vehicles to “work” together seamlessly, opening the way to autonomous driving.
For example, if the vehicle in front of you suddenly brakes, your car will be informed and can also break too. If you are about to overtake a vehicle without a clear visibility, the vehicle could share with you what it sees thanks to its sensor or cameras so you would take the best decision. If you’re about to change of direction and that another road user is in the blind spot of your car, your car will be informed. V2X also allows the vehicles to communicate with the infrastructure and get noticed of various events like: pedestrians crossing the road, emergency vehicles passing on the same itinerary, worksites along the way or just being informed of the duration and status of upcoming traffic lights.
This technology is particularly interesting for trucks, as apart from blind spot collisions mentioned before, V2X allows also to practice “trucks platooning”, which would dramatically save fuel for convoys.As norms differs depending on your area between DSRC and C-V2X, TITAN developed modules that covers both technologies in each of its V2X modules.
Imagine a city without traffic jams, where traffic is free flowing at all hours, where emergency vehicles always have a safe route to their place of intervention, where the most fragile road users have priority at intersections, where buildings adapt their consumption to human presence, where streets are lit not only according to the time of day but also according to the weather conditions, where water leaks or unusual electricity consumption are detected and even anticipated. This city is not a dream, but a concrete possibility with all the connectivity modules that TITAN offers. Whether it is WiFi, Bluetooth, V2X, 4G LTE, 5G, or Cat 1bis module, our product catalog covers a wide range of civil infrastructure and tools. TITAN is already providing its expertise in complete confidentiality to leading players who offer solutions for connected security cameras, roadside units, traffic lights, hydraulic flow control systems or intelligent lighting management, as well as waste management.
Customers particularly value the monitoring, qualification, endurance testing and problem detection expertise of TITAN's engineers, thanks to their in-house laboratory. Electronic boards for smart cities are subject to high availability under severe external constraints, where TITAN excels.TITAN's expertise in connectivity components has resulted in the development of automotive grade modules that meet the AEC-Q104 standard. The best solution to any roadside unit (RSU), Closed-circuit television (CCTV) or any other infrastructure requiring products to remain working in extreme conditions.
Modules For Telematics
Telematics are the key to unleash the vehicles’ data and secure roads.
The word “Telematics” is a mix of two words “telecommunications” and “informatics”. it’s a discipline that covers a wide range of usages dedicated to vehicles, such as: tracking, monitoring, safety and remote management. It’s considered as a part of the Internet of Things (IoT) area and concerns a variety of vehicles: cars, two wheelers or motorcycles, trucks, trailers, boats, bicycles, scooters, tractors...
The main idea is to share various information to an external platform or to another machine (M2M) using a cellular module or short-range communication modules. The information shared can be a GPS position, a speed, a mileage, a direction, the error codes of an OBU, every information status an engine probe could give, or any other sensor information provided by a vehicle (brakes, proximity of another vehicle etc..).
The usage of this data and the connection link in the vehicle permit for example to manage a car or a truck fleet using a management software, to track how a driver drives of if his break times are respected, to track the temperature of a refrigerated load, to know the position of a stolen car, to view the charging state of a battery, to prevent maintenance depending on usage, to manage the rental of a vehicle or even to be able to quickly rescue injured people involved in an accident ( thanks to eCall / ERA GLONASS services based on Telematics).
Short-range Communication & Infotainment in Car
Connectivity modules give life to onboard infotainment services
The objects around us are increasingly connected to us, and vehicles are no exception. Beyond V2X, which is a form of short-distance communication between vehicles, there are other technologies that provide essential services on board, such as Bluetooth, Bluetooth is a telecommunications standard that enables the two-way exchange of data over short distances using UHF radio waves in the 2.4 GHz frequency band. Its aim is to simplify connections between electronic devices in close proximity by eliminating wired links.
Infotainment systems play a central role in vehicles today. They allow you to enjoy a large-screen phone display, traffic and congestion information, GPS navigation, Wi-Fi connectivity for passengers, additional services such as audio streaming (Spotify, Deezer, Google Play Music...), satellite radio (SiriusXM) or digital terrestrial radio (DAB).
To make all these multimedia uses possible, vehicle infotainment systems need reliable cellular modules and short-range communication modules (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth) that can interact both with cellular networks and with users' phones.
Modules For GPS Positioning
GNSS module provides accurate location information for vehicles and assets
With the massive deployment of GNSS satellites around the globe, everybody can now access easily to a precise position, knowing fast where he is. The systems are now varied and dedicated depending on the region of the world you are in. Each major nation has also deployed its own system to be independent of the USA and to offer alternatives in the case of a cut in access to American satellites. Thus, alongside the historic Global Positioning System (GPS), there is also the European GALILEO, the Chinese BDS), the Russian GLONASS, and the Japanese QZSS , which covers the archipelago and Oceania more precisely.
Compatible with all these systems, TITAN connectivity modules using GNSS enable a multitude of applications such as: on-board navigation, monitoring of containers or trailers, speed tracking of a moving vehicle or rapid intervention by emergency teams in case of an accident.
TITAN modules also offer an optional "Dead reckoning" function which allows the module (subject to wheel rotation information) to calculate the vehicle's trajectory in the absence of a GPS signal, for example in a tunnel.
