Highlights

Enhance Validation with Synchronous Testing of Communication-based Systems

  • Incorporate application-level testing that integrates C-V2X scenarios with HIL systems
    • Validate more of the system earlier in the development cycle
  • Cover cases for all major regions: China, Europe, and the United States
    • Verify performance relative to the relevant ITS stack, ensuring accurate communication to and from the vehicle
  • Easily set up predefined scenarios that address Day 1 Use Cases in the lab
    • Accelerate detection of bugs and interoperability issues across the application layer, ITS stack and PC5 link level
    • Reduce the need for costly, often nonrepeatable road testing

The core purpose of V2X communication is to provide standardized safety services by means of broadcast messages alerting individual vehicles to the presence, position, trajectory, and speed of surrounding vehicles. Communication between vehicles, and with roadside units such as traffic lights, is provided by a wireless link in the 5.9 GHz band. This has a range of 300 meters and is not limited by line-of-sight, enabling vehicles to “see” and detect others that may be obscured by buildings, trees, and so on.

In the immediate term, V2X applications are being defined in the form of Use Cases by standards bodies in Europe (C2C Forum), North America (SAE), China (C-SAE), and elsewhere. In the longer term, applications such as those being considered by 5GAA will be developed using V2X information along with other sensor data. Collectively, these define the scale and scope of testing that must be applied to ADAS designs that incorporate V2X.

Keysight offers the only solution that is tracking along with the evolving C-V2X standard. The SA8700A test solution supports RF, protocol and application-layer testing, and the underlying platform will support future releases of 5G NR C-V2X. This protects the end-user’s initial investment in the solution, and it will accelerate deployment of new technologies that enable advanced safety features.
  • Transmitter Testing: Power, error-vector magnitude (EVM), frequency accuracy, in-band emissions, adjacent channel leakage ratio (ACLR)
  • Receiver Testing: Sensitivity, maximum input level, adjacent-channel selectivity
  • Protocol Testing: Ensure correct PC5 link protocol, V2X message types and content are sent and received. Comprehensive coverage of C-V2X and LTE protocol test cases for GCF and PTCRB device certification testing.
  • Application Layer Testing: Incorporate application-level testing that integrates C-V2X scenarios with HIL systems
