SINGAPORE – Soon your car could have a smart display that alerts you in advance to tolls, road works and traffic jams, while switching traffic lights to go in your favour.
When approaching a car park, it can also display the number of parking lots available and the hourly charges.
More importantly, this new technology in your vehicle could help you, other motorists and driverless cars avoid traffic accidents and improve road safety for all.
With this goal in mind, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and NXP Semiconductors N.V., the world-leading automotive semiconductor supplier in secure connected cars, have launched Singapore’s first Smart Mobility Consortium to focus on testing and developing smart mobility technologies.
The technologies will be tested on the NTU campus, which serves as a living test bed, bringing together 12 industry partners to form the NTU-NXP Smart Mobility Consortium.
To develop innovations in smart mobility, the consortium will harness an international wireless standard for vehicular use known as the vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication technology.
