Rohde & Schwarz and Vector deliver leading C-V2X test solution
Autonomous Vehicle Technology announces 2020 ACES Award Winner in Connectivity | Testing category
Connectivity is playing an ever-increasing and important role in enabling vehicles to exchange information with the world around them. The collaborative efforts of Rohde & Schwarz and automotive E/E networking specialist Vector Informatik have resulted in a cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) test solution that provides a significant step toward achieving the goal of fully connected and safe vehicles. The companies’ efforts in developing and verifying C-V2X end-to-end application scenarios resulted in a test platform that combines the R&S CMW500 network simulator and SMBV100A/B GNSS simulator operating together with Vector’s CANoe .Car2x software tool for simulation, development, and testing of V2X based communication applications. The test solution is designed to configure and run traffic scenarios to test the physical layer 3GPP Rel. 14 up to the application layer of C-V2X ECUs in a lab environment. The solution uses the C-V2X software package for the R&S CMW500 to simulate the Physical- and MAC-layer, transmitting and receiving data over the simulated PC5 interface. This covers ideal, faded, and congested channel conditions to the device under test. CANoe .Car2x offers a range of functions designed to configure and run traffic scenarios. The combined solution covers all layers, enabling the testing of specific use cases such as Emergency Electronic Brake Light (EEBL), Left-Turn Assist (LTA), or Intersection Movement Assist (IMA)—as well as more complex scenarios with multiple simulated vehicles such as a congested highway. It enables customers to stimulate the V2X ECU with real scenario data to perform tests from physical layer up to the application, so OEMs and suppliers to reduce the time needed to roll out fast-evolving C-V2X technology.
