Enhanced Collaboration between Car Manufacturers and Semiconductor Industry Promises Significant Advancements in Road Safety


Car manufacturers strive to create vehicles that are safer, more customized, and eco-friendly. This makes them increasingly reliant on chips or semiconductors.

In order to get there, chip technology requires another quantum leap forward: today, it does not yet possess the necessary computing power or energy efficiency to build the next generation of automotive systems. It is time for car manufacturers to leave their mark on chip makers’ strategic roadmaps.

Against this backdrop, the European Chips Act – which was created to address supply chain issues and geopolitical challenges in the semiconductor industry – presents a unique opportunity for the European car manufacturing ecosystem to reclaim a leading position in the global automotive market.
