- Anritsu has launched the MX727000A V2X communications evaluation software according to the IEEE802.11p standard.
- This solution supports the analysis of V2X messages (vehicle to any other equipment) for United States, European and Japanese vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-road (V2X) communication standards.
V2X communications is a critical element in the future of the connected car, with the IEEE802.11p-compliant V2X services already being deployed in Japan, and the US and Europe will roll out commercial services. However, each region is using a different V2X standard, requiring automobile, in-vehicle and roadside equipment manufacturers to develop communications equipment supporting different regional standards.
This is also coupled with the additional burden on development engineers to search and analyse large volumes of protocol data from V2X systems in order to identify incorrect message definitions.
According to Anritsu, MX727000A Evaluation Software overcomes some of these problems by analysing V2X messages without needing to search large amounts of data. Testing for all regional standards is supported by just one test platform, eliminating the need to purchase separate measuring instruments for each standard and layer.
The MX727000A PC application software product line is composed of three versions for the US (MX727020A), Europe (MX727030A), and Japan (MX727040A). It can be used in combination with either the Anritsu Signal Analyzer MS269xA or MS2830A to analyse V2X messages captured from in-vehicle and roadside equipment.
The Signal Analyzer captures the live V2X messages exchanged between the vehicle and roadside equipment, which are then analysed by the MX727000A software to provide objective evaluation results.
