NXP Semiconductors and Tongji University recently announced their support for the launch and implementation of China’s first ever large-scale road test initiative for intelligent connected vehicles through the NXP-Tongji University Joint Lab. As part of the Shanghai Intelligent and Connected Vehicle Demonstration Program, the road testing initiative will serve as a foundation for China’s development of smart transportation and vehicle-to-vehicle communications standards.

NXP and its partner Cohda Wireless will provide secure vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) communications technology for cars and roadside infrastructure. Road testing will collect V2X communications data in real time from multiple test scenarios, including measures of active safety, traffic management and information services.

NXP claims the launch of road testing represents a significant milestone for the Shanghai Intelligent and Connected Vehicle Demonstration Program. Launched in October 2015, the first phase of this program now will involve approximately 200 vehicles from the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC), one of China’s largest domestic auto manufacturers, as well as from other participating automakers. As additional carmakers join the program, the aim is to have 1,000 intelligent and connected vehicles by 2017, 5,000 vehicles by the end of 2019, and 10,000 vehicles by 2020.

Both the vehicles and transportation infrastructure units involved in the road tests utilize the newest generation of NXP’s RoadLINK™ solution. RoadLINK technology is based on the IEEE 802.11p wireless communication protocol, and is proven by ten years of testing by multiple European and U.S. government and professional institutions.
