Ficosa, leading global provider dedicated to research, development, production and marketing of vision, safety, communication and efficiency systems for the automotive and mobility sectors, has been the first global manufacturer to receive European RED certification for its CarCom platform with Cellular-V2X technology. This platform integrates Qualcomm’s latest technology and has been certified in collaboration with Dekra Laboratories.
In words of Joan Palacín, director of the Advanced Communications Business Unit of Ficosa:
“This certification is a recognition of the dedication and all our efforts in developing and accelerating the arrival of the connected car to the market, innovating in solutions that make it possible as we already demonstrated in several pilots in 2018 integrating CarCom On Board Units in more than 500 vehicles. We are happy to count on the full support of the best technological partners, such like Qualcomm and Dekra, which has been key to make this important achievement.”
Ficosa develops solutions for connecting cars with infrastructures and with other vehicles through the available technologies: both with DSRC (802.11p) and cellular technology (C-V2X). CarCom platform allows integrating the two connectivity options in a modular way and there is also a dual mode variant available.
