Taking a step further on the road to autonomous driving and smart mobility, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2017) in Las Vegas, NXP has demonstrated its vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) capabilities with its new Intelligent Traffic Control and Communication system.
The marriage of sensing, analysis, control and communications holds great promise for ITS. Intelligent roadside units (RSUs) are most needed where vehicle traffic is highest, and leading smart cities around the world will employ intelligent RSUs to help smooth traffic flow and increase safety. As the market leader in automotive sensors (radars, cameras and motion), V2X communication modules, processors for driver assist systems and communication equipment, NXP is ideally positioned to deliver solutions for RSUs and other ITS equipment.
NXP’s Intelligent Traffic Control and Communication system demonstrates V2I capabilities to sense, think, act and communicate, including:
The intelligent infrastructure system uses sensor fusion to provide traffic flow optimization, vulnerable road-user warnings and traffic light control, while sending direct communications of signal phase and timing to approaching vehicles. In addition, the system provides broadband wireless hotspot connectivity via cellular and wi-fi modules.
Powered by NXP’s flagship QorIQ LS208X processor family, the system integrates the RoadLINK V2X chip set, the S32V ADAS processor and long-range radar from RFBeam that incorporates NXP’s MR3003 77GHz radar transceiver and S32R radar MCU. At CES 2017, NXP’s Intelligent Traffic Control and Communication System controlled a simulated pedestrian crosswalk and interoperated with a V2X-equipped highly automated vehicle.
