For automated communication between vehicles or between vehicles and the infrastructure, electronics vendor LG Innotek has introduced a module that works according to the C-V2X standard.
C-V2X stands for "Cellular-Vehicle To Everything" and refers to the system that exchanges data such as driving conditions between vehicle, mobile device and road infrastructure via mobile radio technology. The C-V2X module is a core component of the communication function. A competing approach works according to the C-ITS standard; it is currently unclear which manufacturers choose which standard.
Thanks to the C-V2X module, manufacturers of automobiles and components can now speed up the development of next-generation communication platforms. With the C-V2X module, there is no need to separately purchase numerous relevant parts or design your own complex communication circuits.
The company uses the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset, which serves as the center of the C-V2X module. In addition, LG Innotek has enabled a number of manufacturers to use this module regardless of region or type of automobile, as it meets international technical standards. The module complies with the LTE-based C-V2X Direct Communications Standards (PC5), which were established last March by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP).
The company is strongly targeting the market for vehicle communication components such as C-V2X. This is based on the decision that communication components will be at the heart of the performance and safety of the vehicles of the future, including self-propelled vehicles.
According to Lux Research, the global market for V2X communication modules will reach USD 6.5 billion in 2020.
