Applied Information Showcases C-V2X Transportation Infrastructure Featuring Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X Platform at CES 2020

Sponsored by Businesswire

Information, Inc
., the leading provider of intelligent
transportation infrastructure solutions, today unveiled its C-V2X
infrastructure roadside unit (RSU) featuring the Qualcomm®
9150 C-V2X chipset
from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of
Qualcomm Incorporated, at CES
2020 in Las Vegas

The configurable AI-500-095 Dual-Mode RSU with the 9150 C-V2X chipset
provides direct communication of Signal Phase and Timing (SPaT) and
Basic Safety Messages to equipped vehicles and smartphones. The product
also provides redundant communication via the cellular network and other
customer-specified pathways.

“The infrastructure plays a critical role in leading the way for
widespread adoption and deployment of connected vehicle technology with
all its benefits of improved safety and efficiency,” said Bryan
Mulligan, Applied Information President. “Working with Qualcomm
Technologies provides roadway operators with the confidence to deploy
today and be ready for new applications and advances in communications
in the future. As evidence of this, deployments are currently underway
in Georgia and Texas.”

Applied Information will feature the AI-500-095 Dual-Mode RSU in the
Qualcomm Technologies booth in the North Hall #5606 from Tuesday,
January 7 through Thursday, January 9.

“With the deployment of C-V2X technology accelerating,
vehicle-to-everything communications will be a cornerstone of improved
road and public safety, especially as autonomous systems gain traction,”
said Jim Misener, senior director, product management, Qualcomm
Technologies, Inc. “Working with Applied Information to develop an
advanced C-V2X system will realize the potential of mobility innovation,
and address complex safety challenges automakers are pursuing.”

As a global solution for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications,
C-V2X is designed to improve automotive safety, traffic efficiency, and
automated driving with its low latency communications, allowing vehicles
to communicate directly with other vehicles, pedestrians, and roadside
infrastructure without the involvement of a cellular network or network
subscription. The technology also enables emergency vehicles to get
green lights in the direction of travel while safely bringing all other
traffic to a halt, as well as alerting drivers to road conditions and
other hazards even when there is no visibility. With a strong evolution
path in 3GPP to 5G New Radio (5G NR), C-V2X will offer the performance
and support connected vehicles need to communicate with transportation
infrastructure, leading to less congestion, reduced emissions and a
smoother driving experience.

The addition of the 9150 C-V2X chipsets as part of Applied Information’s
products gives Roadway Operators a single solution to support signal
preemption for first responders, signal priority to transit buses and
safety messages to drivers and autonomous vehicles. The technology also
provides Roadway Operators with a platform upon which to create
additional applications for alerts and warnings for school zone safety,
work zone safety, special event traffic management and public safety.

C-V2X connected infrastructure applications supported by the AI-500-095
Dual-Mode Roadside Unit include:

  • Traffic signals
  • Emergency vehicle traffic signal preemption
  • Transit bus traffic signal priority
  • School zone flashing beacons
  • Changeable message signs
  • Work zone safety
