During this year's Geneva International Motor Show, HARMAN International Industries Inc. will showcase its LIVS Connected Car Compute Platform for advanced, holistic vehicle intelligence with vehicle-to-x capability (V2X) based on RoadLINK technology from NXP Semiconductors N.V. The wireless technology claims to boost road safety by alerting drivers of critical traffic situations well beyond the range of current production sensors, allowing drivers to "see" around corners, and through traffic obstacles such as big trucks ahead.

V2X allows alerts to be delivered to vehicles from other cars and surrounding infrastructure, such as traffic lights and signage to warn drivers about potentially hazardous traffic situations ahead. The technology can detect hazards beyond the line of sight, even in difficult weather conditions, thus optimally complementing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as radar or cameras. Messages can include blind-intersection collisions, road condition hazards, road works, presence of emergency vehicles, stationary or slow moving vehicles, traffic jams and accident warnings, as well as traffic signals or signage indicators.

The V2X solution demonstrated by HARMAN and NXP as part of HARMAN's Life-Enhancing Intelligent Vehicle Solution (LIVS) automotive compute platform claims to be very reliable and provides real-time performance. It operates on IEEE 802.11p, a wireless communication standard designed for the needs of the automotive industry as it directly connects surrounding infrastructure and vehicles to each other in ad-hoc networks based on proximity to achieve immediate transmission and ensure reliable road safety communications. The V2X communication is protected against illegal attacks by NXP's V2X hardware security module and HARMAN's comprehensive 5+1 safety architecture with hypervisor and firewall as an indispensable basis for all technologies and services, including over the air (OTA) update capabilities. The V2X application software runs on the i.MX 6Solo applications processor from NXP, a feature- and performance-scalable platform.
