Autotalks has teamed up with Russia’s Sreda Solutions to offer a V2X solution for the Russian and global markets.

NTI (National Technology Initiative) AutoNet project, managed by GLONASS Union non-commercial partnership, which was appointed by the Russian government, is spearheading the effort to introduce V2X technology to the domestic vehicle market and supports Euro NCAP initiative to add V2X to the vehicle safety rating starting 2024.

Sreda Solutions, a prominent provider in Russia’s wireless technology and automotive embedded systems market, launched its first V2XSmartCore (V2SC) software using Autotalks CRATON2 chipset.

Sreda’s V2SC product is the embedded software for On Board Units (OBUs) and Roadside Units (RSUs) based on ETSI V2X standards for ITS-G5 and C-V2X communication technologies. The V2SC software has been verified in four pilot projects in smart cities and on highways.

Sreda also offers the V2X Autonomous Vehicle Platform (V2AP) back-end software product which provides RSU device management, V2X data analytics and visualization capabilities.

Russia is moving quickly to adopt V2X technology. V2X tests have been recently launched in St. Petersburg and new V2X pilot tests are planned in Kaliningrad, in other regions and on highways later in 2021. OEMs and other partners will be invited to join these field tests. In addition, Russian representatives are in discussions with the pan-European C-Roads project on cross-border tests encompassing Russia and EU member states.
