Autotalks to provide V2X chipset for ZF
2 August, 2021
Autotalks’ 2nd generation V2X chipset is the world’s first available solution which supports both DSRC based on 802.11p/ITS-G5 standards and C-V2X based on 3GPP specifications
ZF Group has selected Autotalks V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication solutions to its future ADAS system ProConnect Connectivity Unit. Autotalks’ dual-mode (DSRC/C-V2X) V2X chipsets will be integrated into ZF´s solution planned to be used in autonomous e-shuttles produced by the Dutch company 2getthere (photo above). Autotalks’ V2X chipsets allow vehicles to communicate with roadside units (RSUs) and to interface with road infrastructure objects such as traffic lights.
Driverless autonomous vehicles cannot afford any failure or uncertainty under any condition. In addition to vision-based sensors, which rely on AI training, V2X provides autonomous vehicles another information from the traffic light controller and other road-users. This contributes to more redundancy and thus safety. “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.
Autotalks’ 2nd generation V2X chipset is the world’s first available solution which supports both DSRC based on 802.11p/ITS-G5 standards and C-V2X based on 3GPP release 14 and 15 specifications with embedded V2X cyber-security functionality. The chipset allows customers to easily toggle between DSRC and C-V2X communications.
