Chipset provider Autotalks has completed its part in the city of Seoul's C-ITS deployment.

A Vehicle to Everything (V2X) system, based on Autotalks’ chipset, has been installed in nearly 2,000 buses operating in Sangam Digital Media City (DMC) and along Seoul City’s expressways.

Jointly funded by Seoul City and the South Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport (Molit), the on-board unit (OBU) system is designed to alert drivers of pedestrians, schools and restricted traffic zones as well as road and weather warnings.

Seoul plans to establish a V2X and ADAS (advanced driver assistance system) test platform supporting Autonomous Driving Level 4.

“Autotalks applauds Seoul City and Molit for advancing their vision of a smart and safe city,” said Ram Shallom, VP business development and marketing in APAC at Autotalks.

“By taking a bold move towards developing a modern city and placing their confidence in an innovative V2X OBU system, the city is setting the standard for others to follow. This move by Seoul City will be seen as a game-changer for those cities and regions still grappling with technology decisions, allowing their indecision to hamper the future of mobility.”
