How should the automotive industry
test V2X systems?

Why the connected car demands a fundamental shift in vehicle testing and QA

It seems inevitable that delivering V2X communications which work correctly, under all possible conditions, will soon become a critical part of vehicle development, and simply expected by drivers. This presents all stakeholders with a unique combination of challenges. Testing to evaluate the systems should include metrics for precision, repeatability, safety and much more. In the lab. Live testing is also essential for predicting how a system will react.

As V2X communications are added to their operation—the more these attacks become not only likely, but inevitable. To mitigate the risk, V2X systems need to be robust, reliable, and capable of recognizing when they are under attack—and these capabilities need to be tested.

Stay ahead of a constantly-evolving mix of threats from V2X. Spirent and Tata’s V2X emulator combines software and hardware simulation, creating a comprehensive, virtual field test environment. The DUT uses real signals to communicate with virtual vehicles and its environment, while performing well-established safety application trials.
