Spirent Communications and Cohda Wireless are extending their partnership to support the testing of WAVE-DSRC vehicle-to-everything (V2X) devices.
Building on their long successful cooperation for testing the European V2X standard ITS-G5, Cohda Wireless and Spirent have joined efforts to provide similar tests for the USDOT WAVE-DSRC standards, as per IEEE1609.x and SAE J2945/1.
V2X is the foundation for a wide range of applications that will significantly enhance road safety by alerting drivers and embedded systems onboard the vehicle about road work, lane closures, traffic signal timings, and even potential collision hazards. V2X technology will greatly contribute to optimizing the safe flow of traffic, ultimately enabling fully autonomous vehicles to operate safely using cooperative intelligent transportation systems (C-ITS).
Interoperability across vehicular communication devices and associated software from different manufacturers is highly critical for the success of V2X technology. Spirent, the leading provider of connected car and automotive Ethernet test solutions, recently released a new version of its TTsuite WAVE-DSRC test solution, which received Qualified Test Equipment status from OmniAir for the first program in the world to certify vehicle-to-everything (V2X) compliance to standards and regulations.
Cohda Wireless is a key solution provider of V2X devices with its MK5 device supporting ITS-G5 as well as WAVE-DSRC standards. The partnership between the leader in testing and the leader in V2X stacks & applications will allow the mass market access to best-in-class V2X technology. Furthermore, Cohda is developing a test interface for its customers to facilitate test automation for device certification.
