The MK6 RSU (roadside unit) and OBU (on-board unit), launched earlier this month, offer the most comprehensive connectivity capability as standard features, including DSRC, C-V2X, LTE/5G and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth.
The Australian-headquartered company believes the MK6 will strengthen its position as the world’s leading provider of connected vehicle technology solutions and expedite the roll-out of cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) around the world. Cohda’s V2X stack and applications are already the most widely deployed in the industry but the MK6 is its most capable, most versatile, and most powerful platform to date. Cohda Wireless CEO Paul Gray says that the dual concurrent technology capability of the MK6 gives users the reliability, flexibility, and interoperability they require to embark on deployments, no matter where they are in the world, with confidence.
“We developed the MK6 with the intent that it would become the undisputed connectivity solution of choice,” explains Gray.
“City transport authorities want to invest confidently in future-proof products and when they equip their traffic lights and other roadside infrastructure with the MK6 RSU they are deploying a road ready solution that can reduce congestion and road accidents. Other than its versatility in connectivity, the MK6 also boasts improved security and processing power for unique and complex applications.”
The MK6 features NXP Semiconductors’ RoadLink SAF5400 and SXF1800 chipsets as well as the Qualcomm Snapdragon Auto 5G Modem-RF Platform. It will be available from December 2022.
