Cohda Wireless has partnered with India-based Sasken Technologies to accelerate the adoption of vehicle to everything (V2X) in connected vehicles utilising cellular or dedicated short range communication (DSRC).
Cohda will combine its wireless DSRC/C-V2X stack and applications with Sasken’s telematics control unit with the stated aim of making road transport safer and smarter.
Calvin Nichols, vice president at Sasken, says the partners are seeking to create a “telematics reference design” that will benefit autonomous vehicles, public transport and heavy vehicles industries.
“Currently, there is a significant amount of integration of telematics, V2X, and vehicle communication software protocols in separate electronic modules that create complexity,” he continues. “This solution will enable integration of different software requirements into a reference design that OEMs and Tier-1s can utilise to streamline their product development time.”
