Spirent launches integrated record and playback system


The new Automotive Record and Playback test system from Spirent Communications enables engineers to record many different real-world signals and then replay them in the lab. The system will help minimize development and validation time for new features for vehicle-to-vehicle communication technology.

This automotive test system is an integrated custom solution that provides radio frequency (RF) recordings for all the major GNSS – GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS – and vehicle CANbus data. The system can also record up to four video streams, audio and other high-speed sensor data to provide a more complete record of the route. The recorded data is time-stamped and can then be replayed as required.

“By providing vehicle manufacturers with a wide range of test capabilities from the wireless, positioning and computer networking industries that complement drive testing, we can help the auto industry adopt connected car technology with more confidence,” said Pete Nicholson, general manager of Spirent’s Automotive Business Unit. “Our system enables automotive OEMs to develop and validate new products more quickly, by making tests repeatable using real-world signals in a lab environment.”
