V2X Communication for Autonomous Driving

Accurate positioning and cloud connectivity for safe operation

The emergence of DSRC-based Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications increases the level of certainty regarding a vehicle’s surroundings, and serves as an enabler for autonomous driving.

Autonomous vehicles use maps to follow a route.  Vehicle to Everything (V2X) communication enables map usage by improving positioning information when GPS is unavailable, such as in urban canyons. In addition, V2X allows the vehicle to better understand the intentions of surrounding vehicles, to receive guidance from infrastructure, and to allow cloud connectivity. Functional safety certification is required for reliable operation.

Autotalks’ V2X solution was designed to meet autonomous driving and vehicle requirements.

  • Know where you are – with accurate, V2X-based positioning for absolute orientation – even in challenging urban canyons
  • Preparation for brake actuation with a functional safety certification
  • Maintain cloud connectivity with an external Wi-Fi to complement cellular connectivity
  • Build trust with embedded security for headroom performance and lower latency
