First Software Defined Radio for Ultra-Reliable, Low-Latency V2X Communications

Provider of real-time connectivity for trains, buses, corporate shuttles, and self-driving vehicles, LILEE Systems has announced the availability of a proprietary software-defined radio delivering ultra-reliable, low-latency communications for V2X (Vehicle-To-Everything) and industrial automation systems. Latencies exceed requirements needed for mission-critical applications in urban, high-speed and intercity rail operations and command and control of self-driving vehicles. The TransAir™ SDR-2400 has been implemented and proven in V2X communications systems of multiple, successful autonomous bus pilots.

LILEE’s TransAir™ SDR-2400 is available as an interface card that works with LILEE’s LMS-2450 gateway and LILEE T-Cloud for centralized cloud-based management. Because TransAir SDR-2400 operates in the worldwide 2.4 GHz unlicensed frequency band, it is also the best fit for private wireless networks supporting large-scale industrial operations and automation systems. 

Inherent limitations of current communications technologies can undermine signal delivery in V2X networks, especially when needed for mission-critical and safety applications. Neither contention-based Wi-Fi nor LTE networks guarantee access for transmission of time-sensitive information. TransAir SDR-2400 guarantees access and quality of service by eliminating the unpredictable bandwidth contention process. Finally, software-defined controllability provides operational flexibility and futureproof V2X communication systems as requirements and technology evolve.

Modern transportation systems are becoming more and more dependent on connectivity, not only for passenger entertainment but for safety and efficiency. LILEE is experiencing a lot of demand for communications technologies that can guarantee delivery at faster speeds without sacrificing reliability. TransAir SDR-2400 is purpose-built to satisfy these demands while meeting operational challenges that come with safely operating mobile assets. The Company is offering the TransAir SDR-2400 so that its customers can benefit from ultra-reliable, low latency communications to build next-generation transportation systems without being tied to cellular providers’ implementation schedules.

LILEE’s 31-day self-driving bus pilot in Taichung, Taiwan safely transported over 7,000 passengers on city streets with cross-traffic, proving the viability of autonomous transit in Taiwan. The second autonomous bus pilot tested the reliability of the communications technology across a more remote, mountainous route and proved just as successful. TransAir SDR-2400 delivered performance and the flexibility to configure communications to the specifics of autonomous bus operational needs.
