V2X (vehicle-to-everything) communication solutions specialist Autotalks has been selected to provide its solutions to automotive supplier ZF.
The company’s dual-mode (DSRC/C-V2X) V2X chipsets will be integrated into ZF´s ProConnect Connectivity Unit. Initially, ZF is set to integrate the solution in autonomous shuttles by 2getthere, starting with a major project in Europe.
The V2X chipsets can be used for vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) capabilities, which allow them to communicate with roadside units (RSUs) and to interface with road infrastructure objects such as traffic lights. This communication helps autonomous vehicles to obtain full knowledge of traffic light status and requests green light for a smooth intersection crossing, avoid hazards, and empowers the shuttles with life-saving accident-prevention capabilities.
“We are honored that a world-class automotive systems provider such as ZF chose to team up with Autotalks to take part in creating its ADAS platform,” said Hagai Zyss, CEO of Autotalks.
“In this vote of confidence, ZF joins several other leading players in the automotive industry which chose to work with us in order to implement the vision of autonomous driving and save lives on the roads with our pioneering V2X communications technology.”
