Kapsch TrafficCom (Kapsch) is pleased to showcase its “9360” product suite of onboard and roadside units, which enable dedicated cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) applications. The 9360 suite follows the 9260 and 9160 sets, which are used for dual-mode/dual-active and DSRC applications respectively. The C-V2X-only product suite targets the recent Federal Communications Commission (FCC) report and order to reallocate spectrum for the 5.9 GHz communications band and endorse the use of C-V2X for intelligent transportation system (ITS) safety, and indicates Kapsch support for diverse connected vehicle applications in the future.

The 9360 product suite comprises the RIS-9360 roadside unit (RSU) and the in-vehicle CBX-9360 onboard unit (OBU). Roadway operators can install the RSU for infrastructure-based safety and mobility services, while fleet operators – such as first responders or transit authorities – can implement preemption and priority services. The CBX has multiple technical interfaces that allow for various integration methods within the vehicle including USB, ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a cellular backhaul – making it a versatile choice for deploying connected vehicle solutions to the field. Together the duo can support current and future ITS applications both in the safety and mobility space.

Kapsch has applied for OmniAir C-V2X certification for the 9360 products. Kapsch 9160 DSRC and 9260 dual-mode/dual-active connected vehicle products have already achieved DSRC certification. Upon OmniAir’s C-V2X program initiation, Kapsch is first in line for certification. The 9360-RSU and 9360-CBX are designed for multi-regional functionality in North America, Europe, and Asia and were developed to meet all international certification standards.

Kapsch is a provider of intelligent transportation systems that have been implemented in traffic scenarios around the world. Its V2X technologies provide the technical infrastructure that enable critical safety and mobility applications, leading to optimized transportation operations. In addition to offering a comprehensive suite of connected vehicle products, Kapsch provides consulting and engineering services to address existing V2X deployments, support the transition from DSRC to C-V2X, and to enable connected vehicle deployments into the future.

The aforementioned FCC report and the Kapsch C-V2X product suite will be discussed in an upcoming webinar on November 19. Find more details here.
