STMicroelectronics will show and demonstrate its products and solutions aimed at making industrial and automotive applications smarter and more efficient at electronica 2018. Many of the product and system demonstrations on show will be based on customer examples showcasing the ongoing technology transformations across industrial and automotive applications: 3D printers, high-power motors, machine condition monitoring equipment, a test bench using Artificial Intelligence to identify defects on a railway, asset trackers, 48V automotive subsystems, 77 GHz radar, secure and tamper resistant telematics, many automotive subsystem modules including LED lighting plus integrated hardware/software solutions for both industrial and automotive applications – supported by a broad set of evaluation and development kits.
In the ST Smart Factory area, the company will feature a smart factory control-center demonstration, as well as technologies for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance through vibration monitoring using AI-enhanced technologies running on STM32 microcontrollers, as well as ultrasound inspection, a broad set of motor control, power and energy management, and industrial sensors demonstrations, and non-destructive testing.
ST will also demonstrate a range of connectivity and security technologies including secure cloud connectivity for edge computing, asset tracking, next generation IoT connectivity, Bluetooth low energy-Mesh, and NFC.
Carmakers and their technology suppliers are reshaping mobility platforms and vehicles with the development of assisted and autonomous driving and the shift to more efficient and higher performing hybrid and electric power technologies. A leading provider of technology and solutions for the automotive industry, ST will be showing a broad range technology solutions and demonstrations for both traditional automotive applications and cutting-edge technologies being designed into next-generation automotive platforms.
To showcase these efforts, ST’s Smart Driving area will include technology and product demonstrations for all key automotive subsystems. In Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and secure infotainment & telematics ST will notably show in-cabin imaging for driver monitoring, radar sensing, precise positioning, V2X communication and over-the-air system updating.
ST’s engineers and marketers will also be showing technologies supporting the design of Electric Vehicles and hybrids, with full Silicon Carbide-based solutions for EV traction inverters, battery management systems, on-board chargers and acoustic vehicle alert systems. In addition, the automotive area will highlight powertrain, chassis and safety, and body and convenience applications.
