C-V2X chipsets validated in record time

Rohde & Schwarz and Autotalks have successfully tested Autotalks’ second generation chipset as the C-V2X UE with the R&S CMW100 communication tester. During the test, multiple test scenarios were verified for transmission and reception of C-V2X direct communications (PC5) based on 3GPP Release 14 using GNSS based synchronisation.

Solving high-speed automotive testing challenges

Solving high-speed automotive testing challenges
A whitepaper has been published by FLIR Systems that discusses how new Infrared (IR) camera technologies are providing engineers and technicians with the tools they need to address the difficulties of high-speed automotive testing. Traditional forms of temperature measurement such as thermocouples are not practical for systems in motion.

Duo advance 5G V2X latency tests

Duo advance 5G V2X latency tests
Cellular-based 5G V2X latency measurements in vehicular environments have been successfully conducted by Rohde & Schwarz and Huawei in field tests in Munich and Shanghai. The initial measurements have shown that it is possible to achieve delays in the millisecond regime in a 5G network, demonstrating a superior latency performance in comparison to LTE.

Parallel testing of automotive products for faster time to market

Parallel testing of automotive products for faster time to market
Automotive electronics testing is one of the most exacting of all test and qualification protocols before production release because of the safety and liability considerations. The AEC Q100 revisions, ZVEI and its French equivalent SIA for accelerated environment stress tests not only list the time or number of cycles that batches of samples have to be tested for, but ISO26262 also defines the set of mission profiles per product application in the car.

Software tool speeds development of AUTOSAR-4 projects

Software tool speeds development of AUTOSAR-4 projects
vVIRTUALtarget is a tool for virtual testing of AUTOSAR ECUs from Vector. It enables faster software development implementations in typical AUTOSAR-4 projects. The virtualised environment makes it possible to test the ECU software throughout the development process. Users benefit from rapid test execution that can be even faster than in real time.

Radar technology puts complex demands on automotive supply chain

Radar technology puts complex demands on automotive supply chain
Vehicle construction is an innovation driver in Germany, and according to the report INNOVATIONEN IN DER DEUTSCHEN WIRTSCHAFT (Innovations in the German economy) of the Fraunhofer Institute and the Center for European Economic Research, €52.4 billion was invested in 2016 alone – with an upward trend. The focus is on autonomous driving, and new developments in this area mean continuous process changes, not just for automobile manufacturers. The entire automotive supply chain must adapt to new challenges.

Automotive manufacturing process increases flexible production

Automotive manufacturing process increases flexible production
The automotive design process has evolved over the past few decades mainly through the introduction of digitalisation. These advancements have enabled businesses to adapt their manufacturing techniques to meet the demands of the industry, saving them time and streamlining the path to the latter stages of production and design. However, Accurate Technologies Inc (ATI) has identified a further opportunity within the automotive Measurement, Calibration and Diagnostics (MCD) sector.
