Keysight Technologies Inc. announced the signing of contract with IT-Telecom to collaborate on a testing solution for Dedicated Short-Range Communication (DSRC) or Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication.
"We are pleased to collaborate with Keysight as a global V2X and autonomous driving test and measurement system partner, and we expect this synergetic combination to extend both party’s technical capabilities," said Kwang Joo Choi, CEO of IT-Telecom.
IT-Telecom is a leading V2X, Intelligent Transport System (ITS) solutions company in Korea that specializes in DSRC technology. DSRC signaling module and protocol expertise from IT-Telecom enhances system integrity and productivity.
"Keysight is pleased to collaborate with IT-Telecom, leveraging their proven DSRC technology to address this exciting growth area in automotive safety," said Gooi Soon Chai, senior vice president, Keysight, and president of the Electronic Industrial Solutions Group. "We look forward to working closely with the V2X community to serve their evolving testing needs."
V2X testing requirement
Safety is essential and DSRC/V2X is an important data source for autonomous-driving vehicles. This technology enables each car to communicate with other vehicles, road infrastructure and pedestrians, using digital messaging, to create a 360-degree situational awareness for each vehicle’s surroundings and traffic conditions.
One of biggest test challenges for a DSRC/V2X deployment is interoperability between systems, deployments and applications. In the U.S., OmniAir, an industry association promoting interoperability and certification for connected vehicles, ITS and transportation payment systems, has organized Plugfest for DSRC. Plugfest includes interoperability testing, field testing and certification testing based on IEEE 802.11p, 1609.2/3/4 and SAE J2945.1 standards. To minimize the risks associated with inadequate testing, and ensure the integrity and performance of a DSRC product, engineers need interoperability and device certification test.
Keysight DSRC Certificate Operating Council (CoC) Test Solution
Greater safety on the road starts with precise verification of DSRC mission-critical communication systems. To meet a wide range of requirements and budgets, Keysight offers compact PXIe solutions which are scalable solutions that support both DSRC radio frequency measurements and protocol testing.
Keysight E6953A DSRC CoC test solution offers customers:
- Compact PXIe hardware reduces footprint and increases test density
- Covers all CoC test cases in single, integrated PXI frame
- Certification test cases for standard specific measurements
- Expandable platform for future V2X test needs
- DSRC transceiver module for CoC test cases, and fully functioning, configurable, real-time On-Board Unit (OBU) or Road-Side Unit (RSU)
