DENSO Takes a Stake in Software Developer eSOL

KARIYA (Japan) ― DENSO Corporation today announced it has taken a 2% equity stake in eSOL Co., Ltd., a leading developer of real-time embedded software solutions. DENSO will use eSOL’s technologies to develop software for the systems and products required for automated driving.

To improve the performance of automated driving and the utilization of external data for safety, in-vehicle electronic products must be integrated to ensure seamless control of the entire vehicle system. As in-vehicle systems become increasingly more complex, it will be necessary to update, rewrite or add software to coordinate with new electronic systems and electronic control units for automated driving. DENSO will work with eSOL as an important partner in rapid software development and will create next-generation electronic platforms through a technology advisor arrangement and personnel exchange.

Founded in 1975, eSOL is the premium partner of AUTOSAR (Automotive Open System Architecture), a consortium organized by automakers and suppliers that standardizes automotive software platforms. In 2016, DENSO established a joint venture, AUBASS Co., Ltd., with eSOL and NEC Communication Systems, Ltd., to enable automakers to use complex in-vehicle software.

DENSO will bring new value to the future of mobility through the development of electronic components, in-vehicle electronic systems, and electronic platforms – all of which will be used in connected and automated driving

DENSO and NRI SecureTechnologies Agree to Establish a Joint Venture for the Growing Automotive Cybersecurity Market

KARIYA/TOKYO (Japan), September 27, 2018 ― DENSO Corporation today announced it has agreed to establish a joint venture with NRI SecureTechnologies, Ltd. to detect and diagnose the security risks of in-vehicle electronic products. The new cybersecurity company, named NDIAS, Ltd. is equally owned by DENSO and NRI and will be officially established in December 2018.

NDIAS will harness DENSO’s expertise in in-vehicle quality and cybersecurity technology development and NRI’s proprietary machine learning technology to protect consumers against the rising threat of cyber attacks in the automotive industry. NRI has nearly 20 years of experience insecurity services in the fields of financial systems, infrastructure, and consumer equipment. The partnership will offer integrated security diagnosis and consulting services for in-vehicle electronic products from the vehicle development phase to the actions required after mass production.

Automated driving and connected vehicles will soon become commonplace and, as a result, various shared technologies and services will be linked within vehicles. Because of this,  international standards for automotive cybersecurity requirements must be established due to imminent threats such as hacking.

In Japan, for example, to introduce automated driving by the end of FY2020, a review has been conducted to require automakers to implement cybersecurity measures and to enact relevant laws. Starting with development to well after mass production, security diagnosis and analysis must be conducted throughout the vehicle’s life cycle.

New threats in cybersecurity continue to evolve and require assessment and diagnosis by a dedicated and trained third party who understands the minds of the attackers. DENSO’s and NRI’s new joint venture will underpin the rapidly evolving digitalized automotive industry with its ground-breaking cybersecurity technologies to help achieve a safe and secure future of seamless mobility.
