Cohda announces C-V2X software development kit
Cohda Wireless has developed a pre-commercial C-V2X direct communications (PC5) software development kit designed to allow users with previous embedded Linux experience to compile and run CV2X applications on the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution. The Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution is a product of Qualcomm Technologies and is based upon the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 14 specifications for direct communications (PC5) between vehicles, infrastructure, and pedestrians over the globally harmonized 5.9 GHz ITS spectrum.
Fabien Cure, Chief Engineer for Cohda Wireless, said, “The availability of the kit will accelerate the commercial introduction of C-V2X technology and will be of particular interest to OEMs given its preproduction readiness, and Cohda’s experience in previously launching a complete software stack in a production vehicle (2017 Cadillac CTS).”
He added, “Our development kit demonstrates our ability to deliver C-V2X commercial solutions and offer the highest quality EU- and US-based C-V2X software. This development kit allows Cohda customer platforms to get access to production-ready applications and reduce even further their time to market.”
Cohda says its C-V2X software development kit includes all software necessary to allow users to modify and rebuild the Cohda firmware to individual specification. It offers concise and complete API documentation; Eclipse Integrated Development Environment, with pre-configured projects; Wireshark, with Cohda custom decoder, for packet-level debug and analysis; and VSim, a comprehensive drive visualization, simulation, and playback tool.
