Hyundai Mobis and Autotalks have announced a series of jointly developed connectivity modules called MTCU (Multi-functional Telematics Control Unit).

The MTCU Gen1, which Hyundai Mobis says represents its most advanced connectivity module yet, supports Day-1 V2X services worldwide. Powered by a V2X chipset from Autotalks, its Day-1 applications alert drivers in dangerous, non-line-of-sight situations – averting a potential collision with another road user at an intersection, for example. Further applications include alerts about road hazards.

Following the MTCU Gen1, as the demand for V2X solutions grows, Hyundai Mobis will leverage Autotalks’ third-generation chipset to power MTCU Gen2 – its next-generation connectivity module solution. Expected to launch in 2024, the module will allow OEMs to offer advanced safety applications based on V2X communication. It will likewise enable various use cases, from basic Day-1 to advanced Day-2 V2X applications. This is achieved through its support for the latest global V2X standards, dual-channel operation, and the integration of Functional Safety-grade implementation – enabling car actuation based on V2X data.
