Canada’s Siyata to equip Australia’s government vehicles with cellular comms system in pilot program


Canadian-based cellular communications systems provider Siyata Mobile is set to equip government vehicles in Australia with its CP250 in-vehicle cellular device as part of a Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) pilot program.

Siyata announced on Thursday it has received a purchase order from an Australian distributor (unnamed) to undertake the pilot program with C-V2X which it says is designed to connect vehicles to each other, roadside infrastructure, cloud-based services, pedestrians, and others.

Siyata says that with the help of sensors and communication systems, the Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything increases autonomous driving in vehicles, and is designed to deliver improved road safety and information services to vehicles, and also uses advanced connectivity in the development of intelligent transport systems which will reduce congestion and pollution.

Marc Seelenfreund, CEO of Siyata Mobile, said: “C-V2X is a worldwide, game-changing technology to improve the safety of travelers and pedestrians while reducing congestion and carbon emissions.

“Analytics from CV2X are immensely valuable in the building of smart cities and our CP250 provides the required hardware, software, and cellular network, an all-in-one device which makes it highly relevant to both the commercial and non-commercial vehicle market.”

Siyata says that according to a MarketStudy report of 16 July the C-V2X market is projected to exceed US$800 million by 2025 due to the increase in demand for safe & reliable road transportation, the rising adoption of autonomous vehicles, and the increase in the adoption of vehicle telematics by logistics & transportation companies.

According to Siyata, the CP250 is the first and only LTE all-in-one tablet style fleet communications device for cellular voice calls, Push-to-Talk Over Cellular, navigation, data applications, built in forward facing camera, and DVR to enable C-V2X capabilities.

“This device was designed to be installed on the dash or mounted on a windshield, specifically for lighter commercial vehicles such as taxis, vans, delivery trucks, and non-commercial vehicles,” Siyata says.
