Cisco and NXP invest in Cohda Wireless

Cisco and NXP Semiconductors have each made an investment in Cohda Wireless, in order to advance intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and vehicle-to-X (V2X)) communications technology. Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications require highly reliable and secure data exchange between fast moving vehicles and infrastructure in a wide range of conditions. NXP and Cohda Wireless have already built a market-ready, flexible wireless communication system for onboard-units, based on Cohda’s existing advanced radio and NXP’s market-proven software-defined radio technology, which are key elements that will connect to Cisco’s vision of a highly-secure ‘Internet of Everything’.

Technologies developed by the three companies are being used in onboard and roadside units that are currently being tested to global standards in major field trials worldwide, including: the US Department of Transport’s Safety Pilot Model Deployment trial, simTD in Germany, ScoreF in France, and ERP2 in Singapore. The three companies will apply their collective expertise and technologies to help automotive OEMs, suppliers, enterprises and consumers to connect vehicles with ITS infrastructure, which will be spearheaded by producing the first automotive-qualified IEEE 802.11p products for onboard and roadside units that are ready for V2V and V2I deployments across the globe. Cohda’s technology enhances wireless communications to quality levels far beyond commercial off-the-shelf IEEE 802.11p transceivers, allowing cars to more effectively ‘see’ through obstacles or around corners. NXP will exclusively license the Cohda 802.11p technology together with its own chipsets as a one-stop shop to automotive customers. Together, the three companies will develop a complete market-ready system for the automotive and ITS industry.

Kurt Sievers, EVP of automotive business at NXP Semiconductors, said, “Our market-proven multi-standard software-defined radio is the ideal platform for V2X communication. Combined with Cohda’s superior wireless communication algorithms and Cisco’s network intelligence, we will achieve the performance, system cost and compactness that car makers and Tier-1 suppliers are asking for. Our combined technology will help to avoid traffic accidents, save lives and reduce CO2 emissions.” Maciej Kranz, VP of the connected industries group at Cisco, commented, “We believe that amazing things can happen when you connect the previously unconnected, and smarter vehicles are one of the many ways in which we will fully experience the Internet of Everything. The onboard solution is one element of an end-to-end architecture that integrates with Cisco’s offboard network infrastructure. Our ultimate aim is to bring about a safer, more enjoyable, and more productive travel experience, enabled by the network.”
