u-blox, Commsignia, and NXP collaborate to drive V2X
u-blox, Commsignia Inc, and NXP Semiconductors have announced a collaborative endeavor to address the rapidly growing demand for reliable Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) technology.
A statement released by the companies states that automotive manufacturers are looking for ways to bring V2X to market now, ramping up to 100% implementation in new cars within the next five years. This collaboration between the three companies is intended to accelerate the adoption of V2X technology by building on the strengths of all three entities to deliver substantial time-to-market advantages and benefits to automotive customers, with future-proof solutions to optimize investments and mitigate risks.
The adoption of V2X technology in North America and European markets equips new vehicles with the ability to securely and anonymously share information with other similarly equipped vehicles, infrastructure and pedestrians within a radius of up to 1km (.6mi). IEEE 802.11p V2X technology is production ready and has been proven to reliably see around corners, according to the companies. V2X information will augment the awareness of drivers to improve safety, reduce congestion and emissions, thereby delivering real savings and benefits to all road users today and in the future for self-driving autonomous vehicles.
u-blox, Commsignia and NXP, will be demonstrating live how this collaboration is enabling lifesaving V2V applications at the TU-Automotive Detroit Conference and Expo, 7-8 June 2017. The demo entitled “Fast track to safe & secure V2X” will show the following use cases:
- Blind Spot Warning (BSW)
- Emergency Electronic Brake Light (EEBL)
- Co-operative Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
- Lane Change Assist (LCA)
- Left/Right Turn Assist (LRTA)
- Control Loss Vehicle Warning (CLW)
- Intersection Movement Assist (IMA)
