The trials on a public road, conducted in collaboration with an unnamed large Chinese technology company, validated Autotalks' C-V2X capabilities, including a communication range of over 2km with a nominal range of around 1.5km.
The successful field test involved the use of hardware compliant with standards body 3GPP's Release 15 for V2C communications improvements.
Autotalks has been building momentum in China in a bid to target the large local market, growing its partner ecosystem and increasing staff.
The company is a member of the government's IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group, as well as the China Industry Innovation Alliance for the Intelligent and Connected Vehicles (CAICV) and China ITS (intelligent transport systems) Industry Alliance.
In November, Autotalks recruited former Ceragon Networks country manager Yang Xiaobing to lead up its Chinese business development efforts out of its branch in Beijing.
In February, Autotalks partnered with Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company MediaTek for a project focused on cooperating on integrating V2X and telematics technologies.
Autotalks also recently launched the first global V2X solution supporting both C-V2X and dedicated short range communications (DSRC) technologies, the two main connected vehicle standards being adopted by car manufacturers.
