New Cohda office opens in Shanghai


Cohda Wireless has extended to Shanghai, setting up an office there to supply China’s developing markets for autonomous cars and smart cities.

The new office will help to build the company’s profile as a provider of connected autonomous vehicle (CAV) applications.

China is a global leader in developing smart city technology, with its government finalising standards for the 2025 National Development goal for connected smart vehicles, a key component of the Smart Cities strategy.

“There are no local V2X stack and mature application suppliers in the Chinese market yet, so we have an opportunity to add value as this market is developing,” said Cohda Wireless CEO Paul Gray.

Located the Regus Central Towers business centre in Shanghai’s Putuo District, Cohda Wireless’ China office will be managed by Business Development Manager Shuning Yuan, a trilingual executive with a PhD in Intelligent Transport Systems from University Pantheon-Sorbonne in Paris. Local staff will grow to include technical support and engineering resources during this year.

Yuan said he intended to leverage Cohda’s existing local presence.

“Cohda already has connections with most of the major vehicle OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers in China,” he said.

“Cohda’s hardware and software solutions are being used in major field trials and predeployment projects across the country while all major OEMs, Tier 1s and leading universities are evaluating or using our market-leading V2X system solutions.

“Because China is rapidly overtaking the rest of world in the number of vehicles sold, it’s the fastest growing market for e-vehicles, with the largest number of automotive OEMs. Our Shanghai office places us closer to these customers and markets to cultivate first-hand intelligence of developing trends and requirements.”
