Panasonic enter partnership to launch C-V2X technology in Colorado

First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
Panasonic of North America, Qualcomm Technologies and Ford Motor have teamed up to bring cellular-vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technologies to Colorado. The partnership will assess C-V2X capabilities this summer on specific roadways throughout Panasonic's CityNow headquarters in Denver.

This agreement is an extension of a partnership between the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDoT) to integrate connected vehicle technology in the state.

Under the CDoT programme, Kapsch TrafficCom will provide roadside units while connected systems developer Ficosa will supply C-V2X onboard units. A fleet of Ford utility vehicles will be equipped with C-V2X devices that utilise Ficosa’s CarCom platform to enable vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure direct communications. Panasonic’s connected vehicle data platform is intended to collect C-V2X data and provide roadway operators with improved situational awareness.
