NXP along with Tongji University (Shanghai, China), announced the continuation of their collaboration through the Shanghai Intelligent and Connected Vehicle Demonstration Program on November 24.
With urban populations constantly increasing, issues such as traffic jams, pollution and road fatalities will continue to rise concurrently. The most viable solution to these global problems is better connected vehicles and intelligent traffic infrastructure.
NXP together with Tongji University have been working on the V2X ecosystem and will continue this cooperation.
This technology involves vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-people and vehicle-to-infrastructure technology.
Secure V2X will be critical to enable widespread adoption of fully autonomous driving and to improve road safety and traffic flow by giving drivers advanced warning of upcoming hazards such as dangerous road conditions, unexpected traffic jams, approaching emergency vehicles or road works long before they enter their field of vision or become detectable by other Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) sensors (several hundred meters of range).
According to a study conducted by the U.S. Department of Transportation, secure V2X safety functions can reduce multi-vehicle accident figures by more than 80 percent.
