Connectivity Section at MCAV
Our Connectivity Team is responsible for implementing connectivity hardware and software into the vehicles. In 2020 and beyond, the connectivity team will be focusing on customising existing applications and testing how data can be used in V2V connectivity.
V2X connectivity refers to how connected autonomous vehicles are able to communicate with the traffic system surrounding them. This year, the Connectivity Section are focusing their efforts on developing a V2V system enabling cars to communicate with each other.
Currently, we are using an On Board Unit and a Road Side Unit developed by Cohda Wireless. The On Board Unit is in the process of being integrated into the existing Subaru system and will also be compatible with the architecture of the StreetDrone.
