AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE FEATURE NEWS

V2X for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Gets Turbo Boost

By Ken Briodagh June 01, 2017

u blox, a wireless and positioning modules and chips developer, has announced its new VERA P1 series, the latest in its range of V2X modules designed to accelerate the development of safer and more automated vehicles. The goal of developing safe and reliable self driving, autonomous cars can only be realized through technology. The automotive industry, governments and standards bodies all agree it will require vehicles to be in constant contact with other vehicles and their surroundings. This constant contact system has come to be known as either Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) or Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I), and collectively as Vehicle to Everything (V2X).

The VERA P1 module is the latest in a range of automotive-grade transceiver modules from u blox that complies with the IEEE 802.11p standard, enabling the next generation of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) which will deliver the autonomous driving experience.

“The introduction of the VERA P1 module reinforces our commitment to this exciting and emerging market,” said Costas Meimetis, Director Product Strategy Short Range Radio, u blox. “It represents a new generation in V2X transceiver modules for u blox and its customers. Based on the same class leading RF sub system used in our THEO V2X module, VERA offers the same high performance in a smaller and a more cost effective package.”

Able to communicate over a range of up to 1km (line of sight), VERA P1 has been designed to be fully compliant with WAVE (Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments), DRSC (Dedicated Short Range Communications) and ETSI ITS G5, for U.S. and European markets. VERA P1 comes in four variants based on the antenna configuration, simplifying installation for first mount and after market customers, as well as infrastructure (roadside) deployment.

Designed to deliver increased radio performance, the u blox VERA P1 module minimizes or removes the need for additional components often needed to compensate for attenuation, lowering the overall system cost and risk.
