Budapest, 18 February, 2021 – Commsignia today announced the successful completion of C-Roads cross-border testing in Austria and France at the end of 2020, proving that Commsignia’s ITS-G5 V2X solutions, the RS4 roadside unit (RSU) and OB4 on-board unit (OBU) using Autotalks V2X radios with verification acceleration and embedded HSM Hardware Security Module are fully compliant with the pan-European C-Roads project specifications for ITS-G5 communications. The results show the maturity and interoperability of the Autotalks chipset and the complete Commsignia HW&SW solution and enables European customers to ramp up deployment volumes.
In addition to the C-Roads tests, the units are certified against the EU Radio Equipment Directive (EU RED).
Commsignia’s RS4 RSUs and OB4 OBUs are already OmniAir certified, regular participants on ETSI Plugtest events for interoperability and the units are fully compliant with all European V2X standards. The dual technology, DSRC / C-V2X, capability of the units ensure the support of both ITS-G5/DSRC and C-V2X technologies, enabling deployments regardless of regional preferences.
Commsignia V2X solutions are already delivered to more than 25 countries globally. In the various deployments Commsignia proved its competence in complete V2X security, SCMS/PKI integration and secure interoperability with devices from other vendors. The Commsignia OBUs and RSUs run Commsignia’s own automotive grade V2X software stack, security stack and applications.
The Commsignia automotive grade V2X stack, security stack and applications are also available for automotive OEMs and Tier-1s planning to line fit their vehicles with V2X functionality
“We are very proud of the interoperability test results showing our AutoTalks chipset based V2X OBUs and RSUs with the Commsignia V2X software are fit for mass deployments on the European market in terms of maturity, interoperability and security. The V2X software suite is also part of our automotive software product line, tailored to OEM mass production requirements. Commsignia projects in more than 25 countries prove that our solution meets the highest expectations of our customers. – says Laszlo Virag, CTO of Commsignia.
Yuval Lachman, VP of Business Development EU & US, stated “V2X vehicle deployments in Europe are expected to accelerate now that V2X was included in the EuroNCAP 2025 roadmap. V2X infrastructure plays an important part of the European strategy, providing an instant improvement in road-safety. The mature Autotalks chipset proved again the compliance with all the European regulations for deployment in vehicles and infrastructure. Our long-standing and successful cooperation with Commsignia is the baseline for a high-performing and secure solution”.
