Cohda Wireless announces its first V2X OEM deployment for 2017

Cohda Wireless CEO Paul GrayCohda Wireless CEO Paul Gray

Global Connected Vehicle technology leader Cohda Wireless today announces that the new 2017 Cadillac CTS sedan contains Cohda’s world-leading V2X software as a standard feature. V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) uses both vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications to enable cooperation between vehicles and infrastructure to improve safety, mobility, and have a positive environmental impact.

Cohda Wireless will  supply its Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) solutions for the 2017 Cadillac CTS, sold in the US and Canada. DSRC is a two-way, short to medium range wireless technology defined by the 802.11p communications standard. Unlike cameras, radars or lidar sensors, DSRC isn’t bound by line of sight, offering car manufacturers a much safer and more reliable communication solution.

The Cadillac CTS uses the Cohda-based DSRC solution and GPS to transmit and receive as many as 1000 messages per second from other vehicles as far as 300 metres (1000 feet) away.

This pioneering project sees the 2017 Cadillac CTS roll off the production line with Cohda Wireless V2X software installed as a standard feature. This provides the car with ‘360-degree awareness’ by gathering and synthesising data from sensors on nearby vehicles and roadside infrastructure to detect hidden threats by extending the horizon of awareness beyond what the driver can see. Cohda Wireless has supplied the complete software stack for the 2017 Cadillac CTS, comprising 10 DSRC V2X applications including Intersection Collision Warning, Hazardous Location Warning and Emergency Vehicle Warning.

Cohda Wireless CEO Paul Gray said General Motors had achieved a world first with the 2017 Cadillac CTS. “This is now the benchmark that other production cars will be judged against when it comes to technology and safety,” he said.
