Cohda Wireless, Renesas Electronics establish V2X partnership

Renesas Electronics and Cohda Wireless will collaborate in the fields of automotive vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications.

Renesas’ V2X R-Car system-on-chips (SoCs) and Cohda Wireless’s V2X and CAV software will be combined to deliver a V2X reference solution that supports European and North American communications standards for V2X system development.

In response to the industry expectations for US Department of Transportation (USDOT) to mandate V2X to improve road safety and efficiency, as well as the recent deployment of V2X technology in Japan, targets have been set to widely introduce secure V2X technology in multiple global regions. According to USDOT estimates, V2X technology can minimise over 80% of non-impaired crash types.

WLAN-based technology has been shown to offer reliable and secure communication for cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS). Critical and time-sensitive information on all road users and roadway elements, such as traffic control devices, are expected to be shared for improved safety and efficiency.

“Renesas is committed to providing better safety and comfort to the automotive industry by delivering easy-to-use solutions for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and V2X systems that enable quicker time to market,” said Jean-Francois Chouteau, senior director, Automotive Safety and ADAS Solution Business Division, at Renesas Electronics Corporation.

“As the market leader for software solutions in the fields of connected autonomous vehicles and V2X, Cohda Wireless is pleased to support Renesas’s R-Car W2R and R-Car W2H SoCs,” said Paul Gray, CEO of Cohda Wireless.
