Tech firm Cohda Wireless to test driverless cars


Driverless car technology that allows vehicles to “see” around corners will be tested on city streets for the first time.

Australian company Cohda Wireless will use a $2 million (£1.59 million) government grant to purchase two autonomous cars to test its world-leading radar technology on public roads. The grant from the South Australian Government’s Future Mobility Lab Fund will also enable Cohda to test the technology on the streets of the state’s capital Adelaide.

The two cars will be fitted with the company’s V2X-Radar (Vehicle to Everything Radar), which will allow them to detect buildings, road signs and even older vehicles not equipped with car-to-car communications.
