Vector signs Memorandum of Understanding to introduce Car2x communication

In signing a "Memorandum of Understanding on Deployment Strategy for cooperative ITS in Europe" on 07-18-2013, Vector is is demonstrating its active support for the introduction and use of Car2x technology. Beginning in 2015, communication among vehicles and with the transportation infrastructure is expected to make traffic safer, more efficient and more sustainable.

The memorandum of understanding was initiated by many automotive OEMs in the framework of the CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium. It expresses their intent to work as partners in harmonizing Car2x technology and in introducing cooperative intelligent transport systems (ITS) to the road.

Vector is making its contribution with the CANoe.Car2x development and test tool. It supports both ECU developers and function developers in performing integration and calibration tests during system development. CANoe.Car2x also offers a comprehensive set of functions for systematic debugging. CANoe.Car2x has already been successfully used in practice on such projects as DRIVE C2X.

Vector sees the introduction of Car2x technology as a basis for safer and more efficient transportation. Car2x can be used to communicate information about hazards before drivers can visually detect them, e.g. warnings about construction zones, traffic jams or cross traffic. It also has the potential to improve driving convenience and promote the efficient flow of traffic, e.g. by incorporating the latest traffic information in on-board navigation systems. Finally, these and other mechanisms such as cooperative traffic lights (GLOSA – Green Light Optimal Speed Advisory) contribute towards reducing energy needs.
