New Software Solution Provides Cost-effective V2V and V2I Evaluations of Devices and Systems Designed for Connected Autonomous Vehicles
Allen, TX – August 23, 2021 – Anritsu Company announces that its LTE V2X PC5 Communications Software MX725000A now supports the Cohda Wireless Communications Module MK6C Evaluation Kit (EVK). The cost-effective solution provides automobile OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers with an efficient tool to conduct required functional and regressions tests to evaluate C-V2X PC5 communications functions in devices and systems used in connected autonomous vehicles (CAVs).
Anritsu added support for the widely-used Cohda Wireless MK6C EVK to the MX725000A as a reference module. With the solution, which runs on a Windows-based laptop, cost-of-test for verification of V2V and V2I communications is reduced.
Engineers use the LTE V2X PC5 Communications Software MX725000A to evaluate PC5 communications functions, a key technology to implement CAVs. The software-based solution supports typical use cases defined by national ITS standards such as Forward Collision Warning, Intersection Collision Warning, Emergency Brake Warning, etc. It operates interactively with C-V2X communications reference modules, GNSS simulators, and V2X emulator software.
Using commercially available C-V2X communications reference modules, the MX725000A creates time and cost efficiencies. It eliminates the need for expensive hardware emulators, helping configure a cost-effective test environment that eliminates the time-consuming task of creating complex scenarios using programming language. With the MX725000A, the interactive GUI for selecting evaluation scenarios and checking the emulated vehicle on the map supports intuitive and easy-to-understand functional evaluation to improve product quality and shorten the development period.
The Cohda Wireless MK6C EVK is a C-V2X evaluation kit using the MDM9150 chipset, supporting cost-effective development of C-V2X applications and use cases.
