Cohda Wireless names new chief engineer, announces expansion plans


Cohda Wireless, an Adelaide based company that has developed WiFi based collision-avoidance technology for motor vehicles, has appointed Fabien Cure as its chief engineer and says it will soon open offices in the US and Europe to meet customer development needs.

According to Cohda, Cure is "an experienced automotive wireless manager...[who] has over ten years of wireless and automotive design experience and will direct the development and commercialisation of Cohda's automotive products."

Cohda Wireless was recently selected by the United States Department of Transportation (US DOT) to provide a wide range of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) radios for the Safety Pilot Model Deployment, a real-life test of WiFi based collision avoidance technology on Ann Arbor, Michigan roads using 2,800 vehicles.

Cohda said that Cure was "committed to provide robust solutions to take the Ann Arbor model deployment to the next level, high-volume automotive production. [He] will direct a dedicated team of engineers sharing his passion. "

Cohda CEO and founder, Paul Gray, said: "Fabien's automotive product experience is much needed to take Cohda and the industry to the next level...The car industry has high expectations for their electronic suppliers. Cohda will soon open offices in the US and Europe to meet customer development needs. We provide extensive training, tailored to fit our client's needs and schedule."

According to Gray, "Governments, OEMs and suppliers selected the Cohda radio, facility and network layer to participate in major field tests of V2V because of our superior design. More than 800 different trials were completed for as many as 15 applications around the globe covering over 17,000 km. in USA, Australia, Germany, France and Korea."

The Cohda technology and products are based on a WiFi-like standard, called Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) and is recognised by its international standard as IEEE 802.11p.

Cohda says its unique patented technology "specifically addresses the most challenging problems of V2V, such as multipath interference. The Cohda network software implements the IEEE 1609 'network stack' and SAE 2735 'message library' familiar to automotive engineers."

Cohda CTO, Paul Alexander, said: "Our patented technology enhances radio reception; the car can see around corners when needed...Our MK3 radio and network software provide a complete solution for OEMs and their suppliers. We have also developed roadside broadcasting units. Today we can provide an end-to-end complete solution, being able to communicate from a Cohda MK3 radio built into the car to a roadside radio."
