Autotalks’ C-V2X Chipst is Market-Ready for China

Autotalks, from Kfar Netter, Israel, announced it had successfully showcased its chipset’s conformance to the Chinese C-V2X standard and the Chinese OSCCA security standard, during a large-scale interoperability demonstration of multi-brand C-V2X communication solutions. This demo brought together 20 automotive companies, including leading automakers ,with 50 demonstration teams to examine how they are working together in a close-to-real-world setting.  The demonstration was part of the China SAE Congress and Exhibition, held on October 22-24 in Shanghai.

Autotalks’ C-V2X chipset was used by five different automakers: Renault-Nissan, Brilliance Auto, FAW, Great Wall and another major European OEM, which conducted demonstration rides for hundreds of visitors, exhibiting conformance and interoperability at all levels: chipset, system, software and security. The demonstration included both Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications, including the security features needed to conform the requirements of the Chinese OSCCA standard.

These requirements include a comprehensive protection of the V2X system against cybersecurity attacks through Road Side Units (RSUs). Autotalks announced it had been working closely with its Tier-1 and ecosystem partners to ensure end-to-end conformance and interoperability, and successfully completed interoperability tests with all other C-V2X chipset vendors.

Recently, Autotalks and Neusoft signed a cooperation agreement aimed at forming a strategic partnership for creating a secured global V2X solution. “We are proud to reach this milestone in the fast-growing Intelligent Connected Vehicle (ICV) market in China,” said Ram Shallom, VP Business Development and Marketing in APAC at Autotalks. “The recent successful end-to-end C-V2X demonstration with five car makers and our ecosystem partners, shows the maturity of our C-V2X technology and its readiness for mass deployment.”

NoTraffic Adopted V2X Chipsets from Autotalks

NoTraffic from Tel Aviv and Palo Alto, California, has decided to adopt Autotalks’ V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) chipset in its traffic management platform. The system is based on a network of plug and play AI sensors connected by V2I communication technologies. The company says that any signalized intersection can be transformed to a smart one in less than one hour. NoTraffic’s platform includes fusing various sensor data (camera, radar, V2X) at intersections working directly with a centralized system in the cloud to enhance traffic flow and road user safety.

“Projects equipping Road Side Units with V2X and cameras allow drivers and autonomous vehicles to get safety messages about dangers at intersections ahead of time as well as to optimizing the flow of traffic,” said Hagai Zyss, CEO of Autotalks from Kfar Netter, near Tel Aviv. Tal Kreisler, CEO of NoTraffic, said that the collaboration with Autotalks will allow to accelerate the deployment of the company’s platform.

“Establishing a communication channel between infrastructure and road users is crucial in order to make the roads safer and more efficient. Our system is already deployed in a number of locations in the US, and we are expanding to additional locations.” Autotalks’ deployment-ready, 2nd generation V2X chipset 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.
