Autotalks’ C-V2X solution market-ready for China

Autotalks, a leader in V2X (vehicle-to-everything) communication solutions, showcased its chipset’s conformance to the Chinese C-V2X standard and the Chinese OSCCA security standard in a demonstration of multi-brand C-V2X communication.

This demo brought together over 20 automotive companies which formed about 50 demonstration teams including leading automakers, all major chipmakers, and terminal and security solution providers working together in a real-world setting. The IMT-2020/CAICV/China SAE 2019 C-V2X ‘Four Layers’ Interoperability Application Demonstration was part of the China SAE Congress and Exhibition that was held on 22-24 October in Shanghai, China.

Autotalks’ chipset was used by five different automakers: Renault-Nissan, Brilliance Auto, FAW, Great Wall and another major European OEM, which conducted demonstration rides for hundreds of visitors, exhibiting conformance and interoperability at all levels: chipset, system, software and security. The demonstration included both vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) applications with security enabled according to Chinese OSCCA standard for the first time. Protection of the V2X system against cybersecurity attacks through Road Side Units (RSUs), was evident through the demonstration rides.

Autotalks has been working closely with its tier one and ecosystem partners to ensure end-to-end conformance and interoperability, which is a prerequisite for mass deployment of C-V2X. Leading up to the IMT-2020/CAICV/China SAE event, Autotalks successfully completed interoperability testing with all other C-V2X chipset vendors.

“We are very proud to reach this important milestone in the fast-growing Intelligent Connected Vehicle (ICV) market in China,” said Ram Shallom, VP business development and marketing in APAC at Autotalks. “The recent successful end-to-end C-V2X demonstration with five car makers and our ecosystem partners, shows the maturity of our C-V2X technology towards mass deployment in China and globally.”
