NXP and Cohda Wireless Enable Rapid V2X Development with Software Agreement
In January 2013, NXP, together with Cisco, acquired a stake in V2X and CAV software leader Cohda- combining forces to advance Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). NXP/Cohda RoadLINK™ technology and Cohda's V2X software applications are already being incorporated into first production vehicles, such as General Motors’, via Delphi's V2X communications platform.
The completion of this contract highlights the strong and ongoing relationship between European technology companies and the Australian technology sector. The agreement was signed in Sydney, Australia with King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands in attendance, as part of their official state visit to Australia.
NXP/Cohda RoadLINK™ technology is the solution of choice in more than 60 percent of all test vehicles used across the globe in V2X field trials. It has completed more than 1 Million test days to date.
At Electronica Trade Show 2016 this week in Munich, NXP will showcase V2X technologies together with partners DAF Trucks, Siemens, Honda, Cohda Wireless, and others. LINK
