Keysight Technologies with Qualcomm Technology and SGS to help advance testing of cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology. The automotive industry is in the process of implementing C-V2X technology to improve safety for drivers and passengers in moving vehicles, as well as pedestrians in transit.
“Keysight’s collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies and SGS will help accelerate timelines for the wider automotive industry to adopt reliable communications protocols and technologies, helping to shape the future of transportation, logistics, and mobility,” said Lucas Hansen, senior director at Keysight Technologies. “We’re pleased to support the C-V2X ecosystem with conformance test solutions that support both GCF and OmniAir validation criteria.”
“As a result of the advancements in C-V2X tests and field trials, we’re witnessing a surge in the technology needed in vehicles that support real-time information sharing which is critical to deterring accidents, avoiding obstacles and broadcasting road-condition updates,” said Prashant Dogra, vice president, engineering at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “The Snapdragon Automotive 4G Platform features integrated C-V2X and global navigation satellite system technology designed for precise timing and location.”
“These key working relationships, such as the one we’ve established with Keysight and Qualcomm Technologies enable SGS to deliver effective products and services that meet our clients’ evolving requirements,” said David Chu, vice president for CRS Electrical & Electronics at SGS. “As the first test house to complete initial C-V2X testing supporting both OmniAir and GCF test plans, SGS is well-positioned to serve an ecosystem of device makers with timely certification services.”
“Our members, including Keysight, Qualcomm Technologies and SGS, will contribute to the verification of new C-V2X test cases at the upcoming OmniAir Global Plugfest, to be held across six test laboratories in Europe, Asia and North America, from September 28th to October 15th,” said Jason Conley, executive director of OmniAir Consortium. “Towards the end of 2020, OmniAir will incorporate over three hundred test cases into a new, independent third-party C-V2X test and certification program.”
The three companies focused on test cases covering radio frequency (RF) and radio resource management (RRM) performance verification of devices used for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) deployment scenarios.
