Commsignia, a major player in the research, development and supply of V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) connectivity and collaborative systems for the automotive and mobility sectors, announced that the company has joined the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA).

5GAA was created to enable companies from the automotive and communication industries to develop, test and promote cellular connected mobility solutions, initiate their standardization and accelerate the commercial availability and global market penetration.

Cellular-V2X technology enables cars to communicate traffic and related sensor data with other C-V2X enabled cars, roadside infrastructure and pedestrians’ smart phones. Data is aggregated and analysed in real-time to provide road-users with warnings to prevent accidents and a detailed view of the traffic environment. The information can be further distributed over the cellular network to provide advanced alerts of road incidents, weather warnings and traffic information along with enhanced transportation data services to any cellular enabled vehicle. This significantly expands the scope of V2X applications, creating an information network for mobility information and alerts.

Commsignia has already proven its ability to provide reliable V2X connectivity solutions in ITS projects along the European C-ITS Corridor and in cities such as Las Vegas and Tampa, Florida as well as for many key players in the automotive industry. By joining the 5GAA, Commsignia intends to use its specialist V2X domain knowledge to help initiate communications solutions standards and to create interoperable products that will ultimately enable vehicles to be fully automated, making future mobility safer and more efficient.
