Airgain's MULTIMAX FV ITS 3-in-1 high gain antenna provides two high gain directional antenna arrays operating in the ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) 5.9GHz frequency band, as is used for DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communications) and C-V2X communications, and 1×1 multi-constellation GNSS (GPS/Beidou) for navigation. The roof-mount MULTIMAX FV ITS antenna solution was customised specifically for DiDi's robo-taxi project, having been successfully deployed, tested, and optimized throughout several key testing stages on its autonomous vehicles on public roads in Jiading District of Shanghai.

“The Airgain C-V2X solution was chosen based on the high gain and efficiency results, and the ability to perform at an advanced level when working on set routes,” said John Pan, General Manager, Asia at Airgain. “We're thrilled to have been chosen by DiDi and we value our relationship with this leading-edge company. We are looking forward to further technological collaborations in support of the advancement of autonomous driving technologies.”

“Working with our auto-industry partners, DiDi has the potential to become the first business to realise a large-scale robo-taxi service in China,” said Zhang Bo, Chief Technology Officer at DiDi, and the Head of its Autonomous Driving Unit. “After searching the industry for wireless technology partners, Airgain was the obvious choice. We value this opportunity to leverage Airgain's automotive antenna technology for the advancement of ITS application development.”

This collaboration demonstrates Airgain's commitment to providing advanced connectivity solutions in support of accelerating the development of Intelligent Transportation Systems, and overall autonomous and connected car innovation. With over 15 years of providing leading-edge wireless system solutions, Airgain brings technological superiority and a depth of applications experience to connected vehicle applications through its reliable and high performance wireless solutions for in-vehicle, vehicle-to-vehicle, and vehicle-to-infrastructure applications.
