Kapsch accelerates introduction of V2X communication

Kapsch has introduced the first configurable roadside ITS station platform for C-V2X direct communication, the RIS-9260, the company said.

Based on the Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X chipset solution, the new C-V2X-based intelligent transport system (ITS) station platform, also known as a roadside unit (RSU), is designed to connect vehicles with their environment, while enabling traffic infrastructure to support vehicles with the information needed to improve safety and efficiency and support autonomous driving.

The Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution is a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated.

To effectively run Cooperative ITS (C-ITS), road operators rely on the data transmitted by the vehicles. With automakers using different vehicle communication technologies, the implementation of different roadside ITS station platforms is needed. To help, Kapsch extends communication capabilities of its RIS-9×60 roadside ITS station platform with C-V2X technology capabilities utilizing the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution. The RIS-9260 is a configurable roadside ITS station platform.
