AISIN, ADVICS, JTEKT, and DENSO to Form a New Company to Develop Integrated Control Software for Automated Driving


KARIYA, JAPAN, Dec, 26 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Aisin Seiki Co., Ltd., ADVICS Co., Ltd., JTEKT Corporation and DENSO Corporation have formally agreed to form a new company to develop integrated control software that will be used for automated driving, vehicle motion control, and other related functions. The new company is named J-QuAD DYNAMICS and will be established in April(1) 2019. In August 2018, the four companies announced their basic agreement to establish a joint venture.

Founded by the four investing companies, the new company will develop software and provide engineering services to accelerate the development of integrated vehicle control systems for automakers in Japan and throughout the world.

AISIN, ADVICS, JTEKT, and DENSO will combine their unique strengths and technical expertise on automated driving, vehicle motion control, and related functions to develop this software-based solution to meet the needs of their customers today and in the future more efficiently and quickly. The companies collaboration and creation of J-QuAD DYNAMICS will develop higher value-added integrated vehicle control systems to create safer and smarter mobility.

(1) The establishment of this new company requires the approval of antitrust authorities.
