The first ever global C-V2X chipsets have recently passed a breakthrough validation test, which will help in the effort to bring the technology to market for mass commercialization.
The successful test of Autotalks’ second-generation V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communications solution chipset was conducted in partnership with Rohde & Schwarz, a supplier of test and measurement solutions to the wireless industry.
During the test, multiple test scenarios were verified for transmission and reception of C-V2X direct communications (PC5) based on 3GPP Release 14 using GNSS based synchronization.
Announced last September, Autotalks’ deployment-ready, second-generation V2X chipset is the only available solution capable of supporting both DSRC and C-V2X (also known as LTE-V2X or LTE-V) direct communications (PC5 protocol) at the highest security level. The chipset supports DSRC based on 802.11p/ITS-G5 standards and C-V2X based on 3GPP Release 14 and Release 15 specifications.
“Rohde & Schwarz’s test equipment helped us validate our solution in record time and reach maturity. The radio performance and security merits of our global solution coupled with our recent expansion into China put us in a great position in terms of mass commercialization of C-V2X technology in China and elsewhere in pursuit of saving lives on roads in the near future,” said Amos Freund, vice president of research and development at Autotalks.
