Day2 V2X is changing the paradigm of V2X usage from “everybody, listen to what I do” to “everybody, listen to what I sense”.
Autotalks shares its experience from a recent and very successful interoperability session conducted in China including remote debugging.
V2X can protect equipped vehicles at a higher percentage than penetration. V2X can mitigate rear-end collisions even with low penetration. V2X can also protect non-equipped vehicles.
1. V2X can prevent accidents that no other sensor can: V2X is the only sensor that can detect obstructed or hidden objects. Most of the time, accidents are caused not by what we see, but by the surprises from what we don’t see. For example, a car bursting into an intersection, or noticing a bit too late that a car came to a stop ahead of us on a highway.
Rivers of ink have been used to write about Autonomous Vehicles and the revolution they will bring to our lives. Indeed, we are all waiting in excited expectation for this revolution and the new possibilities it will bring.
Probably the single most important benefit of vehicle automation is the expected improvement in safety; the combination of advanced sensors and tireless, reliable computing will reduce the number of accidents and with them, save countless lives.
This video blog analyzes V2X from a functional safety perspective. It outlines the evolution of V2X and showcases three different safety use-cases in order to derive present and future functional safety requirements. In addition, functional safety design guidelines for V2X systems are discussed.
During the last couple of weeks, I had the honor to be part of an exciting and inspiring process – defining our company’s vision and mission statements. These kinds of discussions always involve so many perspectives – business, strategy, wishes, emotions, knowledge, numbers, etc. – and for me, as “the new girl in town”, who joined Autotalks six months ago as VP HR, it was a great opportunity to learn more about the company and to be a part of one of its meaningful moments.
A couple of weeks ago, a new United Nations regulation on vehicle cybersecurity was approved. UNECE WP.29 will make cybersecurity a prerequisite for the type approval of vehicles. Meaning, a vehicle can be sold only if proven to be cybersecure. The regulations are set to start implementation in the EU, Japan, and Korea in January 2021 and will reach full implementation by mid-2022.
We’ve just released a new whitepaper measuring C-V2X communication range for different antenna installations. The results were so surprising that it costed me a beer. Who would imagine that two vehicles with a single antenna would hear each other more than 1.8km apart? Not me, but I was happy to lose that bet.
