Strategic V2X alliance will speed up autonomous car communication
MWC 2017: Preparing V2X technology for series production. CYBERCOM (Sweden) and NORDSYS (Germany) announce a strategic partnership.
At the Mobile World Congress taking place in Barcelona from 27th February to 2nd March 2017 two renowned companies, specialised in vehicle communication and infotainment in the automotive and mobile industry, form a new alliance to combine their V2X competences.
This cooperation brings together Cybercom’s knowledge and long experience of software development as well as support for series production vehicles, fielding over 30 million car installations with its Bluetooth software application framework blueGO, and Nordsys which brings its profound V2X know-how and core stack technology waveBEE®. Through this partnership Cybercom will offer a generic V2X application framework product named osCar, a platform agnostic software solution offering a complete foundation for robust, secure and easy integration of V2X functionality in clients´ products. The osCar product encapsulates the road-tested Nordsys dual mode stack for ETSI ITS-G5 and IEEE/ SAE WAVE as well as safety applications and software for vehicle integration, offering a high level API minimizing the effort for system application development.
“Through the V2X pioneer Nordsys we’ve found the ideal partner for our new product osCar. contributing with its leading V2X core stack technology, their position in V2X standardization activities as well as their test and verification tools like waveBEE TOUCH® we are really equipped for meeting our customers’ needs says Mr. Kristian Palm, V2X Business Responsible at Cybercom.
“Automotive OEMs and tier 1 suppliers will benefit from this partnership getting a V2X software application framework which will meet all requirements of the automotive industry for fast and easy integration based upon a mature and proven V2X system software with a defined interface for basic V2X functionality” adds Mr. Manfred Miller, MD, Nordsys.
V2X communication uses a dedicated wireless network frequency where its participants (vehicles or infrastructure) broadcast messages and allows new types of driver information and driver assistant systems. Besides the optimisation of traffic flow, road safety is of extreme importance, like generating warnings for emergency vehicles, hazardous roads or broken down vehicles.
“V2X communication is one of the key technologies for connected, autonomous vehicles of the future which will save lives and contribute to a sustainable environment” says Niklas Flyborg, CEO, Cybercom.
