u-blox, a wireless and positioning module maker, has become a member of the CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium. The industrial-driven consortium is dedicated to the development and deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS).

The consortium’s ultimate goal is to improve road traffic safety and efficiency. It is working to develop roadmaps for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications and to harmonize related standards. Lane-accurate positioning and short-range communication technology, both a focus of u-blox, play an important role for ITS applications.

u-blox is a provider of wireless positioning and communications modules and chips to the automotive industry. “We see the work of the CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium as pivotal to the success of C-ITS deployment, both in Europe and further afield,” u-blox CEO Thomas Seiler said. “Its working groups and technical committee are undertaking very important work to ensure that vehicle communications technologies will contribute to saving lives and reduce injury by making our roads safer. We’re delighted to be able to contribute to that effort.”
