Qualcomm Joins Forces with Over 30 Leading Automotive Companies in China to Showcase Commercial Readiness for C-V2X Direct Communications

- Leading Automotive Manufacturers and Communication Solution Providers Conduct Interoperability Demonstration with Safety Platforms to Show Readiness,
Paving the Way for C-V2X Commercial Rollouts in China in 2020 -

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, announced today the company’s joint efforts with a broad range of Chinese automotive industry companies to showcase commercial readiness of safe and reliable C-V2X direct communication technology, paving the way for China’s commercial C-V2X rollouts in 2020. Together with over 30 leading Chinese automotive companies, Qualcomm Technologies participated in China’s most comprehensive interoperability tests of C-V2X across chipset solutions, vehicles and safety platforms demonstrating the technology’s ability to prevent accidents such as vehicle collisions using C-V2X technology, when security is compromised.  The live interoperability and performance tests were held during the SAE China Congress Exhibition (SAECCE) event in Shanghai. 

Automakers that took part in the live tests include, SAIC Motor, Geely, SAIC Volkswagen, Changan, Great Wall Motors, GAC Group, Ford, Dongfeng Motor Corporation, FAW Group Corporation, BAIC Group, JAC Motors, Chery, Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi and NIO.  Automotive communications solution providers participating in the showcase include DIAS, Nebula Link, VanJee Technology, Genvict, Neusoft Automotive Electronics, Neusoft Reach, Yanfeng Visteon, JPCC, China Mobile IoT (CMIoT), ECARX, Lion Tech, Savari, Cohda Wireless, iSmartWays, Quectel, ZTE and GosuncnWelink, while safety platform providers include China Intelligent and Connected Vehicles (Beijing) Research Institute Co., Ltd. (CICV), and Datang Telecom Group.

The tests featured vehicles and OBUs, most of which are equipped with the Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X chipset solution, which supports a series of intelligent, connected driving assistance applications with high-performance vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications.

The four V2I use cases where interoperability was tested include: Speed Limit Warning; Hazardous Location Warning; Red Light Violation Warning and Green Light Optimal Speed Advisory; and Vulnerable Road User Collision Warning. The tests will also included three V2V use cases: Forward Collision Warning; Blind Spot Warning; and Abnormal Vehicle Warning. Meanwhile, four security authentication use cases include: Defense Against Forged Speed Limit Warning; Defense Against Forged Red and Green Light Information; Defense Against Forged Emergency Vehicle Warning; and Defense Against Forged Forward Collision Warning.

“The Alliance is committed to accelerating the development of the intelligent, connected vehicle industry and deepening cross-industry cooperation for the evolution of related technologies. We are pleased to see that Qualcomm Technologies has actively participated in the multi-interoperability demonstrations and worked with global automotive industry companies to conduct the technology trial and verification for C-V2X,” said Gong Weijie, secretary general of China Industry Innovation Alliance for the Intelligent and Connected Vehicles (CAICV). “The deployment of C-V2X will enhance vehicle safety and driving efficiency and support the implementation of autonomous driving. The CAICV hopes to join hands with a wider range of industry chain companies, including Qualcomm Technologies, to accelerate the commercialization of C-V2X.”  

“China has been a pioneer and leader in deploying C-V2X technology and Qualcomm Technologies is excited to team up with a broad range of Chinese automotive ecosystem to accelerate commercial C-V2X rollouts through the interoperability demonstrations,” said Nakul Duggal, senior vice president of product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “We believe that with the innovation of cutting-edge technologies such as C-V2X, 5G and AI, the intelligent, connected vehicles will stay at the forefront of the automotive industry. Together with the automotive ecosystem in China, we look forward to ushering in a new era of safe, efficient and intelligent transportation.”
