Fewer accidents and greater road safety are central to the vision for automated vehicles (AVs). The vision will be enabled by greater situational awareness:  observing what's happening, foreseeing what's likely to happen next, and automatically taking protective actions. The cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) is evidenced by the 80 global members of the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA). As the 5GAA roadmap advances from basic to enhanced to advanced, the vision will become reality.

Describe the customer problem and or market opportunity

One of the biggest test challenges for C-V2X is keeping up with the latest standards.  This requires a test solution that is always up-to-date with the latest evolution of C-V2X requirements, including future releases that include 5G new radio (5G NR). The solution should also provide a comprehensive and holistic approach to testing—RF, protocol, application-layer—to enable the ability to meet quality, performance, and safety goals.

How does Keysight solution solve this problem?

Keysight's C-V2X Toolset is the only solution that can track the evolving C-V2X standard in terms of radio frequency, protocol, and application-layer testing.  Its future proof 5G NR V2X platform based on 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), Release 16 specifications, protects investments and accelerates deployment of new technologies to enable advanced safety features.

Key Features and Business Benefits

The Keysight C-V2X Toolset offers:

  • Compliance with the 3GPP, Release 14 specifications
  • An intuitive user interface to simplify C-V2X measurements (protocol and radio frequency)
  • A Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) emulator (N5182B MXG X-Series RF Vector Signal Generator, 9 kHz to 6 GHz) to generate signals for realistic GNSS
  • A 5G NR measurement platform to protect initial investments and accelerate deployment of the new technologies that will enable advanced safety features
  • A foundation for C-V2X conformance test
