Cohda Wireless’ V2X connectivity to roll out more smart vehicles on the road


Connected vehicle solutions supplier Cohda Wireless has developed a V2X connectivity solution to help introduce connected vehicles on smart roads and highways.

The MK6 RSU (Road-Side Unit) and OBU (On-Board Unit) offer the most connectivity capability as standard features including DSRC, C-V2X, LTE/5G and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth.

Cohda Wireless CEO Dr Paul Gray said that the dual concurrent technology capability of the MK6 gives users the reliability, flexibility, and interoperability they require to embark on deployments.

“More cities across the world are actively embarking on initiatives to introduce connected vehicles on their roads. We developed the MK6 with the intent that it would become the undisputed connectivity solution of choice,” explained Dr Gray.

“City transport authorities want to invest confidently in future-proof products. When they equip their traffic lights and other roadside infrastructure with the MK6 Road-Side Unit, they are deploying a road ready solution that can reduce congestion and road accidents.”

Dr Gray claims the MK6 boasts improved security and processing power for unique and complex allocations.

Cohda Wireless has worked on high-profile deployments including the 3,000+ vehicle New York Connected Vehicle Project as well as Australia’s connected vehicle pilot, the Ipswich Connected Vehicle Project.

It will apply its experience to develop the sixth generation MK6.

Cohda’s technology was featured in 2019 when Volkswagen equipped its Golf 8 production model with its V2X smarts.

Volkswagen is the second manufacturer to incorporate Cohda’s V2X technology in a production vehicle in readiness for an impending connected road transport system.

“We are approaching a tipping point and we expect the MK6 to be a catalyst for increased momentum,” said Dr Gray.

“The MK6 is the all-rounder solution that makes it easy for the entire industry, especially cities and transport authorities to participate in the evolution of the world’s transport systems,” concluded Dr Gray.

The MK6 features NXP Semiconductors’ RoadLink SAF5400 and SXF1800 chipset as well as the Qualcomm Snapdragon Auto 5G Modem-RF platform.

The MK6 will be available on December 2022.
