u-blox has announced the UBX‑P3 chip for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) wireless communication based on the 802.11p standard, designed in accordance with the stringent demands of the automotive industry.

Driven by demands for reducing traffic accidents and optimised traffic management, V2X technology leverages wireless communication for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication, giving all vehicles on the road a shared real-time perception of their surroundings. In addition to increasing road safety, V2X technology improves traffic management and enables wide-ranging applications such as truck platooning as well as in areas including smart cities, mining and agriculture.

UBX-P3 communicates via the IEEE 802.11p wireless standard — technology that is mature and available for immediate deployment of V2X systems. Many automotive tier-1 suppliers are developing 802.11p-based solutions, and car and truck OEMs have either deployed or plan to deploy the solutions commercially in the near future.

Offered in a compact 9 x 11 mm form factor, the chip supports various design options for flexible deployments in the vehicle and the roadside infrastructure. It concurrently communicates on two channels, which means that safety and service messages can be processed continuously providing greater safety in traffic. Alternatively, it can be used to enable the chip to simultaneously communicate on the same channel using two antennas, thus providing vehicles with full coverage with no blind spots.
