Because safety is everything

Home » Sectors » V2X



At Cohda Wireless, our mission is to make roads safer, not only for drivers, but also for the most vulnerable road users — pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.

The US Department of Transport estimates 94 % of crashes involve human error. Improvements in vehicle and infrastructure safety have reduce the global road toll significantly in recent decades, and now our V2X applications are leading the way to prevent crashes from happening in the first place.

V2X has the potential to eliminate or mitigate up to 80 % of non-impaired-driving collisions. Beyond that, it can also better utilise infrastructure, reducing congestion and pollution. Cohda V2X will make cities safer and more productive.

Cohda’s hardware-agnostic V2X stacks are used in more than 60 % of all connected vehicle trials worldwide. Our history, backed by more than 18,000 km of real-world testing, has made us the OEM supplier of choice for production vehicles, with Cohda selected for the world’s first and second production deployments.

Our Wireless V2X Solutions


Cohda’s fifth-generation On-Board Unit (OBU), the MK5 is a small, low-cost, rugged module that can be retrofitted to vehicles for aftermarket deployment or field trials, and can also serve as a design reference for automotive production.

The MK5 exchanges data at high speeds over extended distances, providing class-leading reaction times to potential hazards and safety-critical scenarios. In challenging outdoor conditions where no line-of-sight is available, its radio performance is unmatched.

Built with the same chipset as the MK5 OBU, the MK5 RoadSide Unit (RSU) is a rugged outdoor unit with integrated dual antennas, housed in a IP67 rated weatherproof enclosure.

Designed for Smart City deployments, the MK5 RSU offers exceptional range and coverage, and a single, inexpensive, self-contained unit can cover all approaches to an intersection. It’s available in mains and Power over Ethernet (PoE) variants.

Cohda’s cellular V2X Evaluation Kit (EVK), is a preview of what is to come with the full MK6 OnBoard Unit (OBU) and Road-Side Unit (RSU). The MK6C EVK is a small and low-cost module that offers multiple connectivity options on top of C-V2X to provide a rapid way to develop your V2X applications and use-cases.

Also available in an RSU enclosure to deploy a connected network in external environments for development and testing.

Based on the MDM 9150 chipset developed by Qualcomm, it offers a robust and secure foundation for developing towards the intelligent transport systems of the future.
