American Vehicle-to-Everything technology company Danlaw has bought Australia-based Cohda Wireless.
It says this marks a significant milestone in Danlaw’s global expansion initiative, aimed at advancing connected vehicle safety and smart city solutions. It says since 2004, Cohda has been widely recognised for its V2X technology solutions that have “consistently set industry standards” and that the acquisition of Cohda by Danlaw reflects a commitment to innovation and a shared vision of creating a more connected and safer future for vehicles, cities, and underground mining operations.
The companies say the synergies between Danlaw and Cohda will yield remarkable results in the V2X technology landscape, and that key benefits of the Danlaw-Cohda partnership include:
Enhanced Safety Solutions: With a broader range of technologies and expertise, Danlaw and Cohda will continue to provide increasingly robust safety solutions for connected vehicles, reducing accidents and saving lives.
Improved Connectivity & Location Accuracy: The integration of Cohda’s V2X-Locate technology along with its ETSI, North American, and China based V2X communication stacks, will offer better positioning accuracy and connectivity solutions for vehicles, enabling real-time communication between vehicles and infrastructure, pedestrians, and other road users.
Smart City Advancements: The partnership will lead to the development of innovative smart city solutions, facilitating more efficient traffic management, reduced congestion, and enhanced urban planning on a global scale.
Accelerated Innovation: Danlaw’s commitment to innovation will be further bolstered with access to Cohda’s talent pool and industry leading V2X intellectual property, fostering the creation of groundbreaking V2X technology solutions for automotive OEMs, smart city initiatives and underground mining programs.
Global Footprint: Combining Danlaw’s strong presence in North America and India with Cohda’s well-established reach in Europe and APAC, the acquisition notably reinforces the global footprint of both companies, leading to localized assistance and solutions across all key regions, ensuring a truly global and responsive partnership.
Raju Dandu, Danlaw’s Founder-Chairman said, “This is truly exciting for the Danlaw family, as we see the combination of resources of these two great companies, ushering in new levels of transportation safety and efficiency, with the potential to transform mobility across the globe for the betterment of society.”
Danlaw’s CEO, Tom Rzeznik added: “This acquisition is a testament to Danlaw’s dedication to creating a safer and smarter future for transportation and urban environments. With Cohda’s expertise on board, we are confident that our combined efforts will accelerate advancements in V2X technology.”
Dr. Paul Gray, Cohda’s CEO commented: “We are thrilled to join forces with Danlaw, a company that shares our global commitment and passion for innovation and safety. Together, we are poised to lead the way in V2X technology and make a lasting impact on the industry.”
The acquisition of Cohda by Danlaw is effective immediately, and both companies say they are working closely to leverage their combined strengths for the benefit of the automotive industry, smart cities, and mining operations.
Only last week (5 January), Cohda Wireless technology was certified for use in the US.
