Qualcomm Technologies and China's Datang Telecom announced the first successful multi-chipset vendor interoperability of C-V2X radio technology based on 3GPP R14 specs, in Beijing.
C-V2X technology improves automotive safety, automated driving, and traffic efficiency. The successful cross-chipset interoperability test utilized the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution and Datang’s LTE-V2X module, the DMD31.
According to Qualcomm, C-V2X is the only V2X communication technology based on the global 3GPP Release 14 specifications for PC5-based direct communications in the 5.9 GHz ITS spectrum where vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) messages for collision avoidance can be sent without any dependency on cellular operator network involvement.
C-V2X is also the only V2X communication technology with an ongoing evolution designed to offer forward compatibility in implementation with 5G NR C-V2X, added Qualcomm.
