LG Innotek’s C-V2X module is based on LTE cellular communication. For clarification, C-V2X stands for Cellular-Vehicle To Everything, referring to the system that shares information such as driving conditions among the car, mobile device, and road infrastructure, using cellular communication technology. C-V2X technology is expected to overcome the limitation of self-driving cars that recognize the environment by relying on automotive sensors like camera and radar.
The company’s C-V2X module features the latest communication chip set and international technical standards. It eliminates the need to purchase hundreds of related parts separately or design complicated communication circuits from scratch. For example, the modules use a Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X for its communication chip set that functions as the brain for the C-V2X module.
LG Innotek has allowed various manufacturers to use this module regardless of the region or type of car by adhering to the international technical standards. The module is in accordance with the LTE-based C-V2X direct communication (PC5) standards set by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) last March. For more info, go to LG Innotek.
