Partners collaborate on Shanghai’s connected vehicle program

A Netherlands-Chinese partnership is extending its collaboration on a Vehicle-to-X technology project that will help save lives and reduce air pollution on Shanghai roads. A world leader in secure connected car systems, NXP Semiconductors, along with Tongji University, have announced the continuation of their successful collaboration through the Shanghai Intelligent and Connected Vehicle Demonstration Program. The announcement was made at a joint ceremony where Stella Lux, the Netherlands-developed energy-efficient, solar-powered family car, made its debut in China. Launched in October, the Shanghai Intelligent and Connected Vehicle Demonstration Program is one of 46 pilot programs under the ‘Made in China 2025’ plan, created with the goal of building up to 20,000 smart, connected vehicles by 2019.

Tongji University is leading the Vehicle Communication and Network Group for this program, with NXP acting as a key partner providing V2X (Vehicle-to-Vehicle/People/Infrastructure) communications systems. This collaboration is the next major milestone following the foundation of the NXP-Tongji University Joint Lab last year, which is dedicated to developing customized connected car systems for the Chinese market, using NXP’s technology competencies and market experience. The company sees the most viable solution to the global problems of traffic jams, pollution and road fatalities as being through better connected vehicles and intelligent traffic infrastructure. NXP has long realized the potential of the connected car and has been behind many of the earliest field trials of V2X technology, introducing the first automotive-qualified product back in 2013, and going on to lead the V2X ecosystem with its RoadLINK technology. The company’s V2X products for series cars will hit the road next year in General Motors cars, as part of Delphi’s V2X platform.“NXP is a pioneer in connected vehicle technologies. We’re happy to see our partnership with NXP has made major progress in bringing the technology to application,” explained Jiang Bo, vice principal of Shanghai’s Tongji University. “As a long-term, active participant in the V2X infrastructure field, this university is excited to cooperate closely with NXP and bring more customized solutions to China.”

Zheng Li, CEO of NXP China, commented, “It’s a great honor to support the Shanghai Intelligent and Connected Vehicle Demonstration Program. The secure, connected car is the future of automotive transport. We play a huge role in driving our successful, innovative global practices with our Chinese partners, crafting the best safety solutions for the Chinese automotive market, and supporting the development of China’s intelligent transportation system. Vehicle-to-X technologies can save thousands of lives in China in the future.”
