V2X technology firm Savari has announced plans to collaborate with test equipment manufacturer Rohde & Schwarz on joint C-V2X interoperability testing.
California-based Savari’s C-V2X middleware has been selected to run on device-under-test (DUT) to demonstrate the outstanding performance and versatility of the R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester for 3GPP LTE-V2X PC5 interoperability testing.
Rohde & Schwarz has expanded the capabilities of its R&S CMW500 platform and R&S SMBV100A/B GNSS simulator to operate with a software tool for simulation, development and test of C-V2X-based communication applications.
The solution covers 3GPP radio access layers for C-V2X Mode 4 and region specific ITS protocol layers and enables engineers to easily verify critical end-to-end safety-related C-V2X scenarios in a lab environment.
The DUT supports Savari’s tablet-based HMI which makes the interoperability testing transparent to a customer and shows the variety of applications available with Savari’s MobiWave V2X Software Stack, supporting WAVE, ETSI and CSAE regional variants.
The collaboration will prepare the way for future interoperability tests as well as enabling automotive customers to quickly set up their system testing environment.
“This combination of Savari software and V2X application expertise together with cutting-edge test technology from Rohde & Schwarz will enable a seamless and quick development cycle for C-V2X.
The combined capabilities were demonstrated by representatives of the two companies at MWC Barcelona (pictured).
