Cohda’s V2X-Locate is a major step forward in making the connected vehicle revolution a reality. As a world leader, who is setting the benchmark for tomorrow’s transportation, Cohda’s solution has solved a major problem facing Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) Connected Vehicles..
Accurate vehicle positioning is vital for Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) and V2X applications. However, in many important scenarios even advanced Global Positioning System (GPS) solutions fail. Typically, GNSS suffers in areas such as Urban Canyons, Tunnels, Parking garages or any compromised sky view.
Cohda’s V2X-Locate allows vehicles to be positioned with sub-metre accuracy even when GNSS is not present or trusted.
By utilizing standard V2X transmissions, leveraging Cohda’s advanced wireless signal processing and positioning algorithms, Cohda has developed a product to provide accurate vehicle position irrespective of GNSS availability.
Earlier this year, Cohda Wireless took its V2X-Locate solution to the streets of New York by deploying six of its low-latency Road-Side Units along a six block of Sixth Avenue, between 48th Street and 54th Street, near the Rockefeller Center in midtown Manhattan. V2X-Locate was able to deliver sub-metre accuracy in this tough urban-canyon environment where even advanced GPS systems had many metres of error.
Cohda Wireless CTO Paul Alexander said Cohda’s world-leading technology was exciting to develop. “These real-world results with Cohda’s V2X-Locate solution are a powerful demonstration,” he said.
“V2X-Locate gives autonomous vehicles the ability to navigate through underground car parks just as easily as GPS-rich environments, providing the key to unlocking the full potential of CAVs.”
Cohda Wireless CEO Paul Gray said the company was dedicated to finding solutions to make transport safer. “We are working closely with mining to make vehicles safer in GPS black spots like mining pits and underground tunnels, which will deliver a huge safety benefit to this industry,” he said.
Cohda Wireless will be at booth #1609 at ITS World Congress 2017
