TAIPEI, May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — CEO of DFI Inc. (2397), Alexander Su, was recently invited to participate in the opening ceremony of the Mobility Taiwan Automotive Research Consortium (mTARC) pavilion at Taipei AMPA & Autotronics Taipei 2022. The special exhibit combines two of the hottest technologies of the day, vehicles electric and autonomous vehicles, and on the theme “Drive into Future”. The pavilion showcases the efforts being invested in the auto industry that is automated, connected, electrified and serviced by organizations and the industry as a whole. Eighteen carefully selected engineering projects for the vehicles are on display, including the T-Box electric vehicle project led by DFI and the Automotive Research Testing Center (ARTC) of the Department of Industrial Technology (DoTI) of the Department of Business economic.
During his speech, Director General Chyou-Huey Chiou of the DoTI, Ministry of Economic Affairs said that according to data released by MarkLines, total global sales of electric vehicles were 6.5 million vehicles in 2021, and the global automotive electronics market reached a value of 360 billion US dollars. In Taiwanthe market is worth US$10.15 billionand should reach US$20.31 billion by 2025.
The DoTI aims to help the industry improve its technical capabilities to compete with international companies and enter the global market. Therefore, mTARC, consisting of 7 institutions and 2 enterprises, was established to promote the development and upgrading of technologies in the automotive industry and conduct trade with international markets. Thanks to the resources and support of technical projects, thousands of patents for autonomous vehicles and electric vehicles have been acquired since 2008 in United States, Germany, Japan, Taiwanand China. In addition, 230 companies have licensed more than 350 patents, which has helped companies create nearly US$3.3 billion In income.
For the 18 products on display in the mTARC pavilion, partnerships have been established with 13 companies, including Optimal-EV in the US, Foxtron, Kenda and DFI. The marketing and application of the products will be gradually rolled out in the future, embodying the efforts Taiwan has achieved in the field of advanced automotive electronics.
The T-Box electric vehicle project, led by DFI and ARTC, is an example of this. Based on the ARM architecture, DFI supplied the VC900-M8M low-power, high-reliability automotive computer. The vehicle interface provided by the computer connects to the sensors to collect vehicle information. Data is synced to the cloud via 4G network for future reference and analysis, keeping an eye on the status and condition of vehicle parts while in use.
mTARC President, Chiu-Feng Linstated that the main objective of the consortium is to improve critical technologies in Taiwan automotive industry and increase its competitiveness. Over time, the consortium’s focus will shift to CASE (Connected, Automated, Serviced, and Electrified), which represents new trends in critical automotive technologies. The exciting results presented at this exhibition fully present the possibilities of the various technical applications.
Factory automation, embedded applications and smart healthcare are three vertical target markets for DFI. At an online investor conference in Q4 2021, DFI said that with new infrastructure being created for production automation and digital transformations, smart applications are becoming long-term requirements. In terms of smart application needs and diversity, as well as deployment and development, DFI will continue to focus on existing automation, 5G and AIoT products. The company will expand its market reach to include green energy, information security and fintech applications, helping enterprises accelerate their transformations and deployment while addressing the need for new infrastructure. DFI will continue to innovate and increase its production capacity to seize new market opportunities.
