First publishedin ITS World Congress
Australian-based Cohda Wireless – one of the leading vendors in the global V2X market – sees the ability of all players to work together as crucial to the success of autonomous vehicles.
“Interoperability among a wide range of OEMs, component manufacturers, hardware and software suppliers is critical to the successful implementation of V2X and the future of autonomous vehicles,” said Bernd Luebben, vice president business development with Cohda Wireless Europe GmbH.
Cohda is using this week’s ITS World Congress to show off its achievements and successes in its vehicle communications technology. Established in 2004 by research scientists working at the University of South Australia Cohda Wireless today has offices in the US and Europe, and will shortly open offices in China.
The company, whose investors include Cisco and NXP, claims to be the leading equipment vendor in the global V2X market, with its hardware and software products used in more than 65% of all V2X field trials worldwide.
It works with many carmakers, tier one suppliers, automotive chipmakers, road authorities and new market entrants, with its products used around the world.
“We have been involved in the 1500km ITS corridor from the Netherlands to Austria, we’re supplying the software for GM’s forthcoming V2X-equipped Cadillac CTS, we are about to announce a tie up with a major European manufacturer, and we’re connecting autonomous cars,” Luebben said.
“We are using our presence at the exhibition to expose our knowledge to the industry, show our support for multiple hardware vendors and prove Cohda is the leader in the V2X market.”
