Micron Reveals Critical Technologies for Autonomous Vehicles

Micron Outlines Highest-Performance Solution for Fully Autonomous Vehicles with GDDR; Extends Security Solution to Auto Market

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS (MWC) AMERICAS -- Autonomous vehicles require safe, secure and highly-responsive solutions, relying on split second decisions powered by enormous amounts of data. To quickly analyze the data necessary for future autonomous vehicles, higher bandwidth memory and storage solutions are required.

By 2020, the storage requirements of the connected vehicle could reach 1 terabyte.  Memory system bandwidths of 300 gigabytes per second (GB/s) and beyond will be required to power full autonomous driving. As the memory and storage market leader in automotive, Micron (Nasdaq:MU) is uniquely positioned to help accelerate the industry's pace of innovation.

Autonomous driving, AI and machine learning are rapidly converging in tomorrow's vehicles, which will become the ultimate Internet of Things and edge computing devices. While cloud connectivity in modern vehicles creates new service opportunities, it also creates security management challenges and vulnerability concerns.
