Kfar Netter, Israel – Autotalks, a world leader in V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication solutions, is supplying its chipset to NoTraffic’s autonomous traffic management platform, which enables the delivery of infrastructure sensor information to vehicles through V2I communications. The integrated solution is capable of identifying a whole range of objects including vehicles, motorcycles, pedestrians and communicate this information using DSRC or C-V2X to oncoming vehicles. The vehicles will alert drivers and, in the future, automatically brake to avoid an accident in a time of danger. Autotalks and NoTraffic will be spotlighting their integrated solution at the 7th EcoMotion Main Event, a show exhibiting Israel’s smart transportation sector, being held at Pavilion 1 at EXPO Exhibition Grounds in Tel Aviv on June 11th, 2019.
Smart infrastructure equipped with both line-of-sight sensors such as camera and radar and V2X for non-line-of-sight sensing enhance safety while optimizing mobility at the same time. NoTraffic’s platform can be deployed anywhere in the world, making city intersections safer and more efficient. The advantages include keeping vulnerable users such as pedestrians and cyclists safe, providing priority for emergency vehicles and public transportation, enabling autonomous vehicles to safely traverse intersections and managing traffic in order to augment road capacity and enhance mobility.
Autotalks’ deployment-ready, 2nd generation V2X chipset is the world’s first available solution which supports both DSRC based on 802.11p/ITS-G5 standards and C-V2X based on 3GPP release 14 and 15 specifications with embedded V2X cyber-security functionality. The chipset allows customers to easily toggle between DSRC and C-V2X communications. NoTraffic’s platform includes fusing various sensor data (camera, radar, V2X) at intersections working directly with a centralized system in the cloud to enhance traffic flow and road user safety. The integration of Autotalks’ V2X chipset enables NoTraffic to use vision sensors to improve V2X effectiveness.
Hagai Zyss, CEO of Autotalks, said: “Our collaboration with NoTraffic is another demonstration of Autotalks’ ability to power new use-cases such as smart intersections, which bring value and enable the future of transportation. Projects equipping Road Side Units with V2X and cameras allow drivers and autonomous vehicles to get safety messages about dangers at intersections ahead of time as well as to optimizing the flow of traffic.”
Tal Kreisler, CEO of NoTraffic, said: “The collaboration with Autotalks will allow us to accelerate the deployment of our platform. Establishing a communication channel between infrastructure and road users is crucial in order to make the roads safer and more efficient. This significant milestone sets the basis for preparing the roads for connected and autonomous transportation: while vehicles are getting increasingly more connected and autonomous, smart road infrastructure is still in its infancy. Our system is already deployed in a number of locations in the US, expanding to additional locations.”

Tel Aviv and Palo Alto based NoTraffic (www.notraffic.tech) is an autonomous AI traffic management platform solving today’s traffic challenges while preparing the roads for the connected era. The platform enables cities to define policies like transit priority or pedestrian access using the cloud dashboard. AI algorithms intelligently implement city policies at each traffic signal in real-time, autonomously managing an entire grid to cut congestion, reduce emissions and prevent accidents NoTraffic is a pioneer leveraging communication channels by providing sensor data to road users via road infrastructure (V2I), thereby making smart intersections a reality.
