Cisco and NXP Semiconductors have announced a joint investment in Cohda Wireless to advance intelligent transport systems and car-to-X communications. The collaboration aims to bring together the expertise of the three firms to bring the Internet of Things to the automotive industry, creating a safer and more enjoyable driving experience while improving the traffic flow.

The progess in Car-to-Car (C2C) and Car-to-Infrastructure (C2I) communcations to enable active safety systems can be realised with the help of applications that warn of hazards such as potential collision scenarios and upcoming traffic congestions.

By allowing vehicles to reliably interact with each other when travelling at high speeds, each vehicle can give drivers accurate warnings and automotically respond to changing driving conditions faster than typical human reaction times. Onboard and road side units developed using technologies from the three companies have been tested to global standards in major field trials, the firm indicated.
