The Qatar Mobility Innovations Center (QMIC) located at the Qatar Science & Technology Park and Cohda Wireless, headquartered in Adelaide, Australia, announced the signing of a technology collaboration agreement in support of deploying connected & automated vehicle systems in Qatar. The agreement was signed at the QMIC booth at QITCOM exhibition. The event was attended by executives from both entities and invited guests.

Since 2010, QMIC has been active in the area of connected vehicles (V2X) R&D, and back in April 2014 it carried out the first field demo of an industry-compliant V2X system and applications in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region at the Qatar Science & Technology Park. As the next step to facilitate potential full deployment of V2X and CAV in Qatar, QMIC has committed plans to carry out a field pilot of V2X and CAV system and applications in 2017/2018 in Qatar.

As part of the MOU signed today, both parties will collaborate to support QMIC’s efforts in carrying out a V2X/CAV field pilot in Qatar and to jointly explore collaborating on other V2X/CAV projects in Qatar and the region. They claim this partnership will leverage the significant expertise QMIC has accumulated in all aspects related to V2X/CAV as well as the broad international knowledge and leading experience of Cohda Wireless in V2X/CAV.
