Cohda Wireless CEO Paul GrayCohda Wireless CEO Paul GrayCohda Wireless (www.cohdawireless.com) today announces it has received two grants from the Government of South Australia, totalling $2 million, as part of the Future Mobility Lab Fund.

The fund will provide $10 million over the next three years to projects that demonstrate, develop or contribute to the applied research of future mobility technologies. The South Australian Government will award grants to projects that contribute to Adelaide’s Smart City initiative and position South Australia as a competitive test bed for Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV).

Cohda Wireless, the world’s leading supplier of Vehicle-to-Vehicle, Vehicle-to-Infrastructure and Vehicle-to-Pedestrian - collectively called V2X - Connected Vehicle solutions, is now developing CAV solutions for carmakers, smart cities and mining.  Cohda Wireless’ CAV products focus on solving key outstanding problems for CAV deployments: CAV localisation, CAV sensor fidelity, and CAV system cost.  

Cohda Wireless CTO Paul Alexander said Cohda Wireless was in a unique position to tackle these problems. “With a history of connected and autonomous vehicle projects including the Freight Signal Priority trial in NSW and the Jaguar Land Rover Off-Road Connected Convoy, we are deploying cutting edge technology and believe Cohda Wireless will be a major player in CAV globally,” he said.

Cohda Wireless to Demonstrate New Jointly-Developed V2X Reference Solution at the ITS World Congress 2016, October 10 -14             

Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE: 6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, and Cohda Wireless, the leading supplier in the vehicle-to-everything (V2X) and connected autonomous vehicle (CAV), today announced their collaboration in the fields of automotive vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications.

By bringing together Renesas’ V2X R-Car system-on-chips (SoCs) and Cohda Wireless’ V2X and CAV software solutions, the companies deliver a V2X reference solution that supports European and North American communications standards for V2X system development.

Cohda Wireless will demonstrate the jointly-developed V2X reference solution consisting of Renesas’ R-Car W2R and R-Car W2H SoCs combined as a starter kit and Cohda Wireless’ software at the ITS World Congress 2016 taking place October 10 -14 in Melbourne/Australia (Booth 313).

In response to the industry expectations for U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) to mandate V2X to improve road safety and efficiency in addition to the recent deployment of V2X technology in Japan, targets have been set to widely introduce secure V2X technology in multiple global regions.

Cohda Wireless CEO Paul GrayAutotalks, a leading supplier of automotive-grade V2X communication processors and RF transceivers, and Cohda Wireless, the market leader of V2X - Vehicle-to-Vehicle, Vehicle-to-Infrastructure, and CAV – Connected Autonomous Vehicles software solution, announcing their partnership at ITS World Congress 2016 in Melbourne. 

Cohda Wireless will demonstrate the V2X reference system consisting of the Autotalks PANGAEA platform and Cohda Wireless’ leading V2X software (Booth #313).

The demo showcases interoperability between the Cohda MK5 platform and the Autotalks PANGAEA platform on a variety of safety applications. An in-car live demonstration is also available for experience at Albert Park.

Cohda Wireless CEO Paul Gray said the Cohda Wireless/Autotalks demonstration shows benefits of interoperability for connected vehicle technology. “Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV), such as platoons of trucks on highways, requires the most mature V2X communications technology and very low signal delay.  Cohda has the most mature, reliable and best performing V2X and CAV solutions available,” he said.
