3GPP test cases based on a system with its R&S wideband radio communication tester against a Quectel module meet C-V2X testing
Cellular-V2X (C-V2X) will be a key technology for improving road safety and accelerating autonomous driving in the coming years. Specifically, the C-V2X PC5 interface that operates in the 5.9 GHz frequency enables direct, reliable, low latency communication between vehicles (V2V), vehicles and infrastructure (V2I) and vehicles and pedestrians (V2P). Therefore, cooperation between suppliers in the automotive industry is extremely important for the deployment of this technology.
Companies looking to pre-validate 3GPP system performance in an automated and timely manner before entering OMNIAIR or CATARC certification process can now refer to the automotive test system introduced by Rohde & Schwarz and Quectel. It provides a high degree of automation and flexible instrument configuration, which meets the requirements of the automotive industry for C-V2X testing. This also benefits customers to leverage existing features in Rohde & Schwarz equipment, thereby minimising additional capital investment.
The Quectel AG15 is an automotive-grade C-V2X module designed and manufactured according to IATF16949:2016 standards. It is designed for use in extremely harsh environments and provides superior ESD/EMI protection performance.
“Through C-V2X PC5 direct communications, the AG15 will make traffic smoother and more efficient by paving the way for automated driving and achieving the goal of fully connected traffic,” said ManfredLindacher, VP Global Sales Automotive International, Quectel Wireless Solutions. “We’re delighted to have collaborated with Rohde & Schwarz to validate these test cases and are looking forward to helping our customers on the road to building a smarter world with our automotive grade C-V2X modules.”
