Autotalks, which develops V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication solutions, is supplying its chipset to NoTraffic’s autonomous traffic management platform, which enables the delivery of infrastructure sensor information to vehicles through V2I (Vehicle-to-Infrastructure) communications. The integrated solution is capable of identifying a whole range of objects including vehicles, motorcycles, pedestrians and communicate this information using DSRC or C-V2X to oncoming vehicles. The vehicles will alert drivers and, in the future, automatically brake to avoid an accident in a time of danger.
Smart infrastructure equipped with both line-of-sight sensors such as camera and radar and V2X for non-line-of-sight sensing enhance safety while optimizing mobility at the same time. Autotalks’ deployment-ready, 2nd generation V2X chipset is claimed to be 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 toggle between DSRC and C-V2X communications. 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. The integration of Autotalks’ V2X chipset enables NoTraffic to use vision sensors to improve V2X effectiveness.
Hagai Zyss, CEO of Autotalks said: “Our collaboration with NoTraffic is another demonstration of Autotalks’ ability to power new use-cases such as smart intersections, which bring value and enable the future of transportation. 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.”
