At CT, we are fully committed to innovation and the development of technologies that transform urban and highway mobility. V2X technology, in particular, is a key part of our vision of safer, more efficient and connected transportation. This technology facilitates communication between vehicles, road users and infrastructure, enabling real-time data exchange and communications that are essential to improving road safety and traffic efficiency.

We use two main approaches in our V2X applications: WLAN-based communication (IEEE 802.11p) and cellular-based V2X communication (C-V2X). Each has its strengths, with WLAN enabling direct communications without the need for cellular networks and C-V2X leveraging existing cellular infrastructure for wider coverage.

At CT, we believe in the power of accurate and timely information to enhance the driving experience. Through our V2X technology, we provide assistance in various scenarios, both on highways and in the complicated city environment. Specific use cases we implement include:

  • Intersection Movement Assist: Avoids unexpected collisions by facilitating communication between vehicles at critical points.
  • Overtaking Assistance: Allows vehicles to overtake safely based on information from the surrounding traffic.
  • Sudden Brake Assist Warning: Informs drivers of the need to brake abruptly due to unforeseen road conditions.
  • Emergency Vehicle Warning for V2V: Identifies and communicates the presence of emergency vehicles, allowing other drivers to react appropriately.
  • ADAS sensors connected to virtual SIMULATORS: Cost-effective fine-tuning of ADAS systems through advanced simulation.
  • Traffic Light Timing Assistant: Optimizes traffic flow by adjusting traffic signals in real time.
  • Ideal Driving Speed Reporting: Guides drivers to maintain the ideal speed, facilitating continuous green light traffic.
  • Proprietary Sensor-based Roadway Inspection and Improvement: Uses collected data to predict and rectify pavement defects.
  • Smart City Traffic Manager through Integral Sensors: Explores how vehicles can contribute to efficient urban traffic management.
  • Self-Calibration of Our Own Sensors: Improves the accuracy and efficiency of our devices by collaborating with infrastructure and other road users.
  • Remote Driving: Increases the operational efficiency of vehicle fleets.

We are also exploring the integration of V2X communications with aerial platforms such as UAVs or drones, which opens up new possibilities for surveillance and aerial data collection. Our approach not only seeks to improve the safety and efficiency of individual vehicles, but also to contribute to the development of smart and sustainable cities.
