The journey to full autonomy is a challenging one for autonomous vehicle developers. From urban signal denial through to sensor handover edge cases, there are a great number of issues to address of a safety-critical nature. For this reason, comprehensive lab testing is crucial.

To support this, Spirent is hosting a seminar addressing the latest challenges, and developments in simulation and testing for autonomy. In it we will cover topics such as why GNSS is growing in importance, additional required sensors, the transition from infotainment to safety-critical, and the why/what/how of testing.

We will also be demonstrating a range of the technology being employed in the industry today to model environments and generate signals and scenarios – HiL with a driving simulator; testing position, navigation and time in multipath environments; record & playback drive testing; V2X emulation and GNSS vulnerabilities testing solutions for jamming and spoofing.


  • Why is positioning and timing becoming increasingly important in automotive?
  • What is the future of GNSS in Advanced Driver-Assisted Systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD)? What are the implications on vehicle-to-everything (V2X) systems?
  • How will the transition between infotainment and safety-critical systems happen?

The need for testing:
  • Why do we need to test our position, navigation and timing system?
  • What scenarios do we need to test for and what edge-cases should one be aware of?
  • How do you test your GNSS receiver in concert with other sensors?

Use Cases, demonstrations and solutions:
  • Hardware in the loop (HiL) testing using a driving simulator
  • Testing positioning, navigation and timing of a receiver in multipath and obscuration environments
  • Spirent and Tata Elxsi’s V2X Emulator with Cohda Wireless
  • Drive testing with a record & playback system
  • Spirent Testing Solutions for GNSS Vulnerabilities: Jamming/Spoofing
    • Introduction to GNSS Vulnerabilities
    • Use cases of jamming and spoofing for the automotive industry
    • Spirent test solutions for anti-jamming and anti-spoofing system capabilities
  • Q and A
