Commsignia has implemented its “Safer on the Road” V2X software stack on the Autotalks Craton2 V2X chipset launched late 2016. In so doing, Commsignia is the first Autotalks’ partner to achieve this important milestone and so provide OEM / Tier 1 and Smart mobility projects with a market ready Craton 2 based software suite for truly secure IEEE802.11p V2X applications.
Commsignia’s work continues its longstanding partnership with Autotalks that has seen the companies collaborate to equip the Frankfurt Rhine Main area with V2X Roadside Units (RSU’s) as part of the European “Intelligent Transportation System (ITS)” smart corridor deployment. Both companies also cooperate in SAFERtec Horizon2020 project for assuring security of V2I services.
Commsignia’s V2X SW implementation on Autotalks’ Craton2 follows another recent notable achievement. In March 2017, Commsignia was the first company to successfully interface with the US DOT SCMS (US Department of Transport Security Credential Management System) client and publicly demonstrate the working solution. The goal of the SCMS service is to provide security services to sign and verify the over-the-air messages to support secure Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications whilst protecting the anonymity of the vehicle.
Commsignia V2X software makes full use of the Craton2 chipset’s embedded Hardware Security Module (eHSM) and V2X cybersecurity firewall to provide security processing performance with proven SCMS and PKI support compatible with US and EU security requirements.
Commsignia’s end-to-end V2X software stack offers customers the benefits of tailored integration and rapid time to market which is critical for customers rolling out Craton2 based solutions as early as model year 2019. Best in class performance with lowest latency and smallest processor footprint optimizes the required BOM (bill of materials) to implement safety critical connected ADAS functions in tomorrow’s connected driving world.
