Automotive and Transportation

Enabling Technologies

Connected autonomous vehicles have become a reality. For autonomous vehicles supporting multiple ADAS features from Level-1 to Level-5 autonomy, connectivity is an important aspect of realizing the end-user functions to keep vehicles connected with road infrastructure, network and other road users. This is possible with advancements in Cellular V2X (CV2X) technologies, 3GPP standards as well as precise centimeter-level positioning with GNSS infrastructure and high-end receivers. Key technical requirements includes:

  • C-V2X (Vehicle-to-other)
  • V2V (Vehicle-to-Vehicle)
  • Dead Reckoning
  • Integration
  • Multipath Mitigation
  • Positioning and Navigation
  • Vehicle Network Integration​

Spotlight Applications

Robot Taxis

Robot Taxis are high-end Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) with L4/L5 autonomous ADAS features which offer driverless, fully autonomous features for commuters. We offer PNT & CV2X solutions to realize the end-user functions for such Robo taxis.

Public Transportation

With urbanization set to grow twofold, public transport is a huge challenge for cities worldwide. Smart public transport means increased efficiencies and an improved society by connecting railways, trams, and buses. We offer connectivity solutions that realize this.

Fleet Management

Save money and drive down operational costs, by using real-time data and insights to monitor cargo, vehicle, and driver performance. We offer off-the-shelf IoT solutions, which can be deployed almost immediately or custom-built solutions.

Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs)

Driverless industrial vehicles, which are designed for factory automation to move cargo load or employee staff between different manufacturing & warehouse stations. Our IoT solutions offer indoor precise positioning where GNSS signals are not available.

Truck Platooning with 5G

Truck platooning is key for V2V connectivity, where trucks drive at a close distance from each other to increase efficiency as the first truck opens a wind tunnel. Trucks need to maintain tight coordination for accurate positioning data exchange. Our CV2X solutions make this possible.

Micro-mobility and E-mobility

Multimodal mobility solutions cover everything from electric vehicles, scooters, e-bikes and e-buses, allowing passengers to choose between all available transportation options. Our antennas and IoT solutions offer cm-level positioning and contextual information about e-mobility devices.

Navigating complex regulatory requirements

From antenna to fully integrated IoT solutions, we’ve spent years working through the pain points of certifications, performance testing, and overall regulatory compliance so you don’t have to. Our products and services help ensure you can achieve time-to-market success without an issue with one of the automotive and transportation regulatory considerations below.

  • Positioning, Navigation & Timing​
  • High Precision GNSS / RTK (Real Time Kinematics)​
  • Centimeter Level GNSS with Integrity Precision​
  • V2X & DSRC System Integration (ETSI / SAE / 3GPP)​
  • AutoSAR / MISRA / SafeRTOS / Mission Critical​
  • ISO 26262, IEC 61508​
  • ASIL / ASPICE / AECQ100

We differentiate our antenna solutions through innovation, advanced design methodologies and years of tribal knowledge. Our engineers live and breathe antennas and RF, with expertise and experience across different wireless automotive use cases, from LTE to GNSS, DSRC and beyond to 5G.

C-V2X offers more efficient, sustainable, and safer transportation

C-V2X is the foundation for the future of transportation. It enables a wide variety of advanced applications, including fully autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles, enhanced safety, fleet platooning, more efficient use of roads, in-vehicle infotainment and more.

C-V2X is a future proof technology with many advantages

  • C-V2X will bring huge benefits for passengers and pedestrian safety, alongside traffic management
  • C-V2X brings higher performance for capacity, coverage, range, scalability, number of devices supported and security
  • Due to already available infrastructure, utilizing the full spectrum of the C-V2X service (V2V, V2I, V2P, V2N) can reduce total cost of ownership
  • Car manufacturers have substantial experience with cellular technologies and will easily make the step to integrate C-V2X chipsets into their cars

Crash avoidance - Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V)

Using our expertise in technologies such as high-precision GNSS, integrate high precision positioning into vehicles to automatically detect collision scenarios and warn drivers in real-time. We can integrate technologies that share information about driving behaviors and deliver cm-level positioning to autonomous vehicles.

Support Road Systems - Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I)

Share real-time data to change driver behavior based on information collected from traffic lights, signage, streetlights and more. For example, communicate road markings with automated vehicle sensors so drivers can detect them in even the most extreme weather conditions.

Increase Road User Safety - Vehicle to Pedestrian (V2P)

Utilize our experience in cellular connectivity, to exchange safety messages and alerts from vehicles to pedestrians, cyclists, and e-scooter users about the speed, location, and direction of an oncoming vehicle. For example, communicate in-vehicle warnings to drivers about a pedestrian on the upcoming roadway.
