Vehicle to everything

Reliable, automated test solutions for V2X, V2V, V2I communications

For several years, automobile manufacturers and government agencies have sought ways to improve safety on roadways and effectively manage traffic flow. Wireless communication systems are advancing, and the vision of automobiles talking to each other (V2V) and to roadside units (V2I) is becoming a reality. These planned automotive wireless communication systems for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications are collectively known as intelligent transportation systems (ITS). The first wave of solutions was based on IEEE 802.11p technology, but now C-V2X solutions based on LTE are appearing, and discussions about how 5G will play a role are already happening.

Well-established vehicle sensors, e.g. radar sensors, cameras and tachometers, already provide information about distances to surroundings and velocities, but sharing information from the vehicle to everything also allows knowledge of critical traffic situations and collisions so that the driver or the car can initiate countermeasures to avoid accidents or create a better traffic flow.

Your challenges

Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications systems require a stable wireless link to maximize the throughput of information, which increases driver safety. To ensure a good wireless link, receivers must be able to detect signals even under the worst conditions, e.g. low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), poor error vector magnitude (EVM) and heavy fading. Replicating these conditions in the lab requires high-performance test equipment capable of generating/analyzing the V2X signals, the required fading conditions and satellite signals for highly accurate positioning.

Benefits of our solutions

  • Innovative: first-to-market C-V2X solution
  • Accurate: class-leading RF performance
