Software delivers V2V & V2I evaluations of devices, systems on autonomous vehicles
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). Firm 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 solution to evaluate PC5 communications functions, a key technology to implement CAVs. The software-based solutionsupports typical use cases defined by national ITS standards, such as forward collision warning, intersection collision warning, and emergency brake warning. It operates interactively with C-V2X communications reference modules, GNSS simulators, and V2X emulator software.
