Jan. 2018 - YoGoKo is present at CES Las Vegas from 9 to 12 January 2018.

CES YoGoKo, at the forefront of new mobility technologies, is one of the 7 innovative companies that will be showcased at the Business France auto pavilion (stand CP-5) on Central Plaza. The French mobility presence at CES 2018 represents its excellence in technologies from audio enhancement to 3D modeling and virtual prototyping, cybersecurity to real time auto community information and automobile connectivity.

YoGoKo showcases Y-Smart, a unified software platform managing hybrid communication technologies (ITS-G5/DSRC, cellular 3/4/5G, WiFi, LoRa, ...) as needed to provide extended connectivity to the cloud and to exchange data between vehicles and its surrounding environment (V2X). It avoids the development of solutions in non-interoperable silos and facilitates the deployment of innovative services. Our highly secure software stack manages communications, data, and services. Extended connectivity is provided through the use of heterogeneous access technologies (ITS-G5, DSRC, WiFi, cellular 3/4/5G, satellite, LoRa, …). We integrate Y-Smart into various hardware platforms fitting to the appropriate deployment environments.

Nov. 2016 - YoGoKo successful ETSI Plugtests in Livorno, Italy

YoGoKo is continuously taking part in V2X deployments and cooperative ITS standardization activities. In November 2016, YoGoKo participated in the fifth plugtests event organised by ETSI in partnership with ERTICO in the region of Toscana, Italy.

ETSI Plugtests in Livorno, Italy The two weeks' tests were focusing on cooperative V2X standards from ETSI, CEN and ISO, with the objective of validation of the ETSI ITS Release 1 standards, through the development of conformance and interoperability tests for ITS V2X with focus on infrastructure services, public key infrastructure (PKI) trust center and ITS-G5 Radio Performance.

YoGoKo deployed a roadside ITS station and a vehicular ITS station equipped with a HMI. The vehicle equipped by YoGoKo ran on a track in the port of Livorno as well as on the Tuscan highway in order to test various use cases with success:

  • Presence warning of road works, traffic lights, road signs and tolling zone using a roadside ITS station.
  • Process messages broadcast by roadside ITS stations on the vehicular ITS station.
  • Mitigation test of tolling and ITS.
Additionally, the plugtests were the opportunity to test for the first time interoperability on top of the ETSI security architecture. YoGoKo completed a secured itinerary on the test track in the port of Livorno and on the Florence-Livorno highway: on its way it managed to perform certificate requests to the PKI trust center server (developed by the ISE project for ITS security) using an IPv6 enabled roadside ITS station, to load certificates into its security stack, to broadcast secured messages to other vehicles and to verify secured messages sent by other vehicles. YoGoKo demonstrated a very good behaviour of its security stack and its hardware security module connected to the trust infrastructure.

YoGoKo proves to be a key actor in the ITS ecosystem. YoGoKo provides a unique communication service based on an embedded box, a cloud platform, and an ITS software stack combining V2X and advanced internet connectivity. These elements are combined in order to build a unified solution addressing all communication and data exchanges needs of the vehicle or the infrastructure.

Oct. 2015 - YoGoKo at the ITS World Congress 2015

ITS World Congress 2015 YoGoKo attends the ITS World Congress in Bordeaux (booth C75 & autonomous vehicle demo performed by VEDECOM) on October 5 - 9 2015.

Cooperative ITS and autonomous vehicles will be put under the spotlight. YoGoKo could not miss this event as the company provides among the most innovative communication solutions for connected and cooperative ITS.

You will be able to meet YoGoKo key personnel face-to-face on our booth C75, shared with other French ITS stakeholders. You will also be able to ride with us - literally - if you enroll to the autonomous vehicle demonstration operated by VEDECOM.

VEDECOM is one of our early customers. VEDEDOM is an institute recently established with the support of Renault and PSA, and many others, to work on advanced solutions for the green and cooperative vehicle.

VEDECOM’s demo features YoGoKo’s communication system. Our communication system is installed in the autonomous vehicle and its two patrol vehicles. In this demo, it is used to exchange road safety and traffic efficiency information with other vehicles and the roadside infrastructure such as traffic lights. V2X exchanges occurs in the 5.9 GHz frequency band based on cooperative ITS standards from ISO, CEN, ETSI, SAE and IEEE. In the meantime, end-to-end connectivity with Internet peers is ensured using IPv6, the new generation of the Internet Protocol.
