Kapsch TrafficCom has completed the acquisition of connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) solutions provider eTrans Systems.

The acquisition of US-based eTrans is expected to further strengthen intelligent transportation systems provider Kapsch’s connected vehicle technology portfolio.

Kapsch TrafficCom chief technology officer Alexander Lewald said: “The knowledge of the eTrans team in embedded, mobile, and IoT technologies will strongly enhance our offerings in the connected and autonomous vehicle transportation field.

“Connected mobility technologies are increasingly dependent on information-sharing, and our integrated solutions can contribute significantly to this industry as it continues to develop.”

The deal means eTrans will be part of Kapsch TrafficCom and its solutions will be integrated within the global Kapsch product portfolio.

“The knowledge of the eTrans will strongly enhance our offerings in the connected and autonomous vehicle transportation field.”

This includes eTrans’ technology-agnostic on-board and roadside unit applications, used to support vehicle to vehicle (V2V), vehicle to infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle to pedestrian (V2P) safety and mobility services.

The company’s Cloud-based smart services also support the utilisation of V2X data for transportation systems management and operations. Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

eTrans CEO John Estrada said: “Everyone at eTrans is very excited for the opportunities that working with the Kapsch team will provide. We’ve worked very hard over the past few years in building out our portfolio of projects and now we’ll be able to bring those solutions to a wider group of customers.”

Besides entering into licensing agreements with customers such as Renesas and Danlaw, eTrans’s current deployments consist of V2X projects in the US states of Michigan, North Carolina, and Nevada.

Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
