Cohda Wireless has announced it will deliver a new cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) turnkey solution for global automakers and smart cities.
The solution features Cohda Wireless’ proven vehicle-to-everything (V2X) software integrated with the Qualcomm Snapdragon Automotive 5G and 4G Platforms. The Snapdragon Automotive 5G and 4G Platforms are products of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
Cohda Wireless chief engineer Fabien Cure said that the porting of Cohda’s software stack to the Snapdragon Automotive 4G and 5G Platforms strengthens the long-standing relationship between the two companies, which share a common goal of revolutionising the world’s road transport systems.
The porting of Cohda’s software to the Snapdragon Automotive 5G and 4G Platforms, in conjunction with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 2150 Platform, delivers automakers a more complete offering for C-V2X which is by design pre-integrated with the latest 5G and 4G telematics platforms, telematics SDK and Qualcomm Aerolink Communication Technology.
This delivers a faster time to market leveraging a mature and proven C-V2X solution and can be leveraged with confidence in the interests of establishing a cooperative, intelligent road transport system that will make our roads safer, less congested and ultimately, less damaging to the environment,” explains Cure.
The Snapdragon Automotive 5G and 4G Platforms features integrated C-V2X direct communications, 5G and/or 4G cellular network connectivity, high-precision multi-frequency global navigation satellite system (HP-GNSS), RF Front-End (RFFE), telematics SDK and Aerolink security functionalities to support major operators across key spectrum bands globally. With these functionalities, the
Snapdragon Automotive 5G and 4G Platforms are designed to provide unmatched support for rich in-vehicle experiences, precise positioning for lane level navigation accuracy, multi-gigabit vehicle-to-network cloud connectivity, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-roadside infrastructure (V2I) direct communication to enable a broad set of end-to-end applications which include high bandwidth low latency teleoperations support, each of which are key requirements for automotive safety, platooning, autonomous, and always-connected driving experiences.
“Cohda Wireless’ V2X solution has been installed in two production vehicles giving Cohda practical experience in bringing automotive ITS solutions to industry. In addition, as a roadmap item, Cohda will enable the C-V2X-Locate solution on the platform resulting in the most advanced, versatile and implementation-ready design,” added Mr. Cure. Cohda’s market leading vehicle location solution, V2X-Locate, solves the issue of inaccurate vehicle positioning in urban canyons where GNSS, even combined with RTK corrections, does not produce reliable vehicle positioning accuracy.
Cohda’s V2X solutions supports the two radio communications technologies under consideration globally.
Cohda Wireless is a member of the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) – a global, cross-industry organisation of companies from the automotive, technology, ICT and telecommunications industries working together to develop end-to-end solutions for future mobility and transportation services.
