Thalwil ZH – The ETH spin-off u-blox is joining forces with the Australian firm Cohda Wireless. Together, the two partners are planning to develop a software solution for autonomous vehicles. To this end, a chip designed by u-blox will be used.

U-blox and Cohda to cooperate on autonomous cars


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.
