Multi-Gig Automotive Ethernet
Connected Vehicle Experiment
Millimeter Wave Radar
Sumitomo Electric is developing Multi-Gig Ethernet connectivity products with automotive PHYs. This is targeted at In-Vehicle Networks that will enable new levels of autonomous driving.
C-V2X is an expected solution for safety and efficiency in road environments by Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) and Vehicle-to-Pedestrian (V2P) communication. Sumitomo Electric evaluates C-V2X units in our testbed and public roads in Japan.
|Frequency||5.8 ~ 5.9 GHz|
|TX Power||23 dBm|
|Power||12 V DC|
Connected vehicle technology has the potential to significantly prevent or reduce the impact of millions of accidents. Sumitomo Electric has been testing in some scenarios to confirm the advantages of connected vehicles while collaborating with external partners in the real environment.
Pedestrian detectors are optimized for roadside modules and were installed on existing poles and arms. They use V2X radio to warn drivers. These detectors have been in use since 2017 in 5 prefectures in Japan.
Driving safety support systems have been operating in Japan since 2015.
