V2X Road Side Unit and On-Board Unit Showcase

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CV2XApplied
Information, Inc.
, the leading provider of intelligent
transportation infrastructure technology, and Commsignia today announced
live demonstrations of C-V2X infrastructure communications between
traffic signals and vehicles traveling along New York Ave. in
Washington, D.C. The demonstration took place during the Intelligent
Transportation Society (ITS) of America annual meeting held this week
from June 4 – 7.

Six consecutive traffic signals along the avenue are equipped with
Applied Information Glance™ AI-500-085 devices providing network
connectivity and signal phase and timing (SPaT) data to the Commsignia
ITS-RS4-D V2X roadside units (RSUs). Vehicles for the demonstration
utilized the TravelSafely™ smartphone application, which displayed the
C-V2X messaging. The RSUs and Commsignia ITS-OB4-D onboard units (OBU)
feature the Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X Platform from Qualcomm
Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated. The messages
displayed included red light running and a ‘get ready for green’ notice.

“This demonstration in the streets of Washington with real traffic
signals and real-world traffic conditions shows that C-V2X technology is
ready to connect today to vehicles and smartphones,” said Bryan
Mulligan, president of Applied Information. “We expect to see
accelerated deployment of connected vehicle technology over the coming
months as roadway operators see the abundance of benefits including
preemption for emergency vehicles and priority for transit buses.”

“We are very proud to be working with the Applied Information and
Qualcomm Technologies on this demonstration and installation in
Washington for the ITS America,” said Jozsef Kovacs, CEO of Commsignia.
“The deployment of commercial C-V2X OBU and RSU shows Commsignia’s
leadership in the cellular V2X space as well as commercial readiness for
C-V2X. We work with our partners to scale up V2X deployments with our
partners to increase traffic safety and to pave the ways for
self-driving cars on these crowded road segments by providing
infrastructure information through V2X radio link.”
