iMOVE partner, Adelaide-based Cohda Wireless, will supply some of its V2X technology to a test bed in central Berlin.
The Digitally Connected Protocol Track (or DigiNet-PS) urban test bed is located on a section of Strasse des 17 and is one of the first test environments of its type in Germany. The core elements of the DigiNet-PS are:
- the creation of a Smart City reference architecture
- the development of the vehicle software
- integration and testing in a real environment
Dr Manzoor Ahmed Khan, DigiNet-PS’ technical lead spoke to the objectives of the project: “To attain the objectives of Level 5 autonomous driving, we need to improve the perception of the vehicles beyond what is created by on-vehicle sensors. In DigiNet-PS, we achieve this by creating perception of road segments through on-road deployed sensors and share it with vehicles.”
Cohda Wireless will supply its MK5 on-board units and road-side units along the Berlin test bed route. Professor Paul Alexander, Chief Technical Officer at Cohda Wireless sees the challenging ambitions and urban environment of DigiNet-PS as an excellent opportunity to display the capabilities and reliability of Cohda Wireless’ V2X equipment.
“There is scope for us to demonstrate our V2X-Locate technology, which enables accurate positioning of vehicles in environments where GNSS performs poorly such as urban canyons, tunnels and underground car-parks. The DigiNet-PS site includes an underground car-park where we can also demonstrate this world-leading positioning solution.”
