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 will use these grants to test the company’s new CAV applications on the streets and highways of Adelaide. Part of the grant will be used to acquire two autonomous vehicles capable of driverless operation in urban and highway environments.
Cohda Wireless CEO Paul Gray said South Australia was the ideal location to develop CAV technology. “Not only was South Australia the first state in Australia to pass laws allowing autonomous vehicles to be tested on the road, but The Future Mobility Lab Fund demonstrates the South Australian Government’s commitment to fostering new technologies and new industries in the State,” he said.
