NXP Congratulates the U.S. Department of Transportation on Proposed Rule to Mandate Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) Communication
Semiconductors (NASDAQ:NXPI), the world’s largest supplier of semiconductors solutions for the automotive industry, applauds the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking issued by the
As a wireless, direct communications technology that connects cars across distances of more than one mile, Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) will eventually pave the way for autonomous vehicles. It is a key enabling technology that makes the machine drive better than a human by truly extending the driver’s senses beyond a human’s line of sight. Furthermore, V2X is a great complement to other advanced driver assistance technologies such as radar, cameras or ultrasound for self-driving cars, as it works reliably in diverse weather and lighting conditions.
The accompanying report to the rule making proposal includes preliminary estimates of safety benefits for two safety applications - Left Turn Assist (LTA) and Intersection Movement Assist (IMA). The report estimates that these technologies alone could prevent up to 592,000 crashes and save 1,083 lives per year. Other research indicates that V2X can reduce C02 and improve traffic flow by warning drivers of road blocks, or hazards one mile ahead.
NXP is the technology leader with its RoadLINK solution, a complete automotive-grade, secure V2X system solution. Security in wireless communications is paramount; this is why the RoadLINK system solution incorporates a high-performance secure element comparable with the standards of banking cards or electronic passports designed to prevent hacking attacks in the connected car. The NXP RoadLINK solution is being introduced in first mass production cars in the U.S. through Delphi’s communications platform.
