Cohda Wireless is an Australian software developer in the field of autonomous vehicles. The company has now agreed a collaboration with u-blox, a spin-off from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH), which specializes in the manufacturing of chips.
The overarching aim of this partnership is to develop a software solution for smart transport applications, as detailed in a press release. To this end, existing software applications developed by Cohda are to be supplemented by the addition of the UBX-P3 chip made by u-blox. According to information in the press release, this chip facilitates wireless vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication pathways.
The press release also explains that 360-degree awareness on the roads will be made possible with the new V2X software solution (vehicle-to-everything). In this context, threats beyond anything either a driver or on-board sensor are able to pick up on can also be detected.
