The field trial showed Autotalks' leading C-V2X capabilities on a public road, including 3GPP release 15 compliant transmit diversity, and communication range of over 2km with a nominal range of over 1.5km.
China is a fast-growing region in the automotive and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) segments. LTE-V2X technology has been gaining strong momentum in China. In November 2018, Autotalks announced that it has recruited Xiaobing Yang to lead Autotalks' business development efforts in China out of Autotalks' new branch in Beijing.
Autotalks is also growing its Chinese partner ecosystem and hiring. It is a member of IMT-2020, CAICV and China ITS Industry Alliance, working on standardisation and testing of C-V2X towards mass deployment. The company has launched a Chinese website at https://www.auto-talks.com/zh-hans/.
Last summer, Autotalks launched the first ever global V2X solution supporting both DSRC and LTE-V2X (also known as C-V2X) based on its second generation mature chipset with the intention of expanding its global footprint into China. Autotalks’ LTE-V2X direct communications (PC5) solution is separated from the cellular Network Access Device (NAD), resulting in a more secure and cost-effective standalone LTE-V2X solution.
Autotalks announced in February that it has partnered with MediaTek to cooperate on integrating V2X and telematics and have completed a joint reference design for Telematics Control Unit (TCU) integrated with a global V2X chipset.
The reference design is based on Autotalks' global V2X chipset and MediaTek's newest technology, an automotive-grade cellular modem SoC, enabling a secure, robust and cost-effective global TCU architecture.
Autotalks was founded in 2008, making V2X chipsets which reduce collisions on roadways and improve mobility.
