Redpine Signals has recently introduced multi-protocol wireless solution with ultra- low power and a low cost designed to drive the emergence of the connected car. Redpine’s WaveCombo™ solution enables dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) as well as non-DSRC applications while also featuring low power consumption ideal for use in bicycles, helmets, smart phones, and any such non-vehicular applications for rider as well as pedestrian safety.
Venkat Mattela, CEO of Redpine Signals, said:
The technology providers in the connected car market are quite fragmented with different parts of the solution coming from different vendors, leaving OEMs with incomplete, costly and ineffective wireless solutions. To solve this problem, Redpine leveraged its decades of expertise in multi-protocol wireless communications and low-power designs to develop WaveCombo. Based on customer feedback, this new solution represents the most significant wireless development for the connected car market and we look forward to driving rapid adoption of this technology throughout the automotive industry.
Joe Pullin, Vice President of Global Marketing at Mitsumi Electronics Corp, said:
