NXP, Honda and Siemens launch smart car corridor in Europe

The ITS corridor has been in the works since 2013, with transport ministers from all three countries helping to get the project off the ground so it will be available for public use next year. Only cars equipped with NXP’s vehicle-to-X technology will be able to benefit from the intelligent traffic systems, but NXP’s executive vice-president and general manager for automotive business Kurt Sievers is confident the test drive will kickstart a new wave of interest in the scheme.
