LG Innotek today announced that it has developed C-V2X (Cellular-Vehicle To Everything) module based on LTE cellular communication. C-V2X ” refers to the system that shares information such as driving conditions among the car, mobile device, and road infrastructure, using cellular communication technology. The C-V2X module is a core component of the communication function.
C-V2X technology is expected to overcome the limitation of self-driving cars that recognize the environment by relying on automotive sensors like camera and radar. It is possible to recognize blind spots or unexpected situations through communication with other vehicles and road infrastructures.
With LG Innotek’s C-V2X module, automakers and components manufacturers can now speed up their progress in developing the next generation communication platforms. Using LG Innotek’s C-V2X module, which applies the latest communication chipset and international technical standards, eliminates the need to separately purchase hundreds of related parts or design complicated communication circuit from scratch.
The company used the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X for its communication chipset that functions as the brain for the C-V2X module because it is considered the most advanced among the communication chipsets. Even though C-V2X is an unprecedented piece of technology that is difficult to modularize, LG Innotek was able to succeed by utilizing its own circuit design technology and automotive components business know-how.
Also, LG Innotek has allowed various manufacturers to use this module regardless of the region or type of car by adhering to the international technical standards. The module is in accordance with the LTE-based C-V2X direct communication (PC5) standards set by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) last March.
