Cohda Wireless has announced its C-V2X solution is ready for the Chinese market after its C-V2X software stack proved compliant with the latest Chinese standards and specifications.
Developers of Connected Autonomous Vehicle software, Cohda Wireless said it demonstrated the solution prior to IMT2020 (5G).
The company said the IMT-2020 (5G) is regarded by many original equipment manufacturers and other industry leaders as one of the interoperability standardisation processes that is likely to be adopted with others including the CAICV of the China Society of Automotive Engineers.
Organised by the CAICT (China Academy of Information and Communications Technology), Cohda will be undertaking road trial testing of its applications with a number of Chinese OEM’s and Tier 1’s and fully supports their standardisation and certification activity with use of the Cohda Wireless C-V2X software stack.
Cohda’s Chief Engineer Fabien Cure said that by achieving IMT-2020(5G) certification, the Australian head-quartered global company, which established an office in Shanghai in February 2018, can begin to grow its footprint in China in earnest.
“Our hardware and software products are used in more than 60 percent of all V2X field trials in the world today, in compliance with US and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) standards, and we hope to eventually have the same presence in China,” explained Mr Cure.
“Cohda Wireless is also the only company to have integrated its V2X software into two car manufacturer platforms and we have a lot to offer the Chinese market including our newly-launched C-V2X product, the MK6C, as well as our knowledge and experience of working with SCATS traffic control systems” added Mr Cure.
Cohda’s MK6C Evaluation Kit was recently launched in China and the company believes it will accelerate the commercial introduction of C-V2X technology in China and around the world.
“We are seeing more and more tests and trials of C-V2X technology and we are delighted to be offering what we believe is the most comprehensive solution of its kind on the market,” explained Mr. Cure.
“Whilst our solutions have always been agnostic, we realised there was a demand for a dedicated C-V2X solution from proponents of cellular technology and being able to deliver on this demand further strengthens our position in the market, especially with OEMs,” added Mr. Cure.
“We are working to grow our reputation and presence in China as a world-leader and we believe our C-V2X Software Stack and Applications, as well as our MK6C EVK will open doors for us,” added Mr. Cure.
“We encourage the Chinese market to contact us to understand why we are a world-leader and to learn more about how the MK6C can be applied to advance connected autonomous vehicle technology in China.”
