Keysight Technologies announced that the company is working with Qualcomm Technologies and SGS to help advance testing of cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology.

The three companies focused on test cases covering radio frequency (RF) and radio resource management (RRM) performance verification of devices used for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) deployment scenarios. The test cases, based on 3rd generation partnership projects’ (3GPP) Release 14 specifications, support C-V2X test plans prescribed by the OmniAir Consortium and the Global Certification Forum (GCF). In August 2020, SGS used Keysight’s RF/RRM DVT & Conformance Toolset and the Qualcomm Snapdrago Automotive 4G Platform to verify initial test cases at the certification company’s lab in San Diego.

The automotive industry is in the process of implementing C-V2X technology to improve safety for drivers and passengers in moving vehicles, as well as pedestrians in transit. Keysight’s conformance test platforms enable hardware and software providers to validate compliance of C-V2X devices to standards set by 3GPP. Keysight’s connected car solutions support a wide range of technologies including, 5G, C-V2X, DSRC and GNSS, to improve reliability, cybersecurity and safety in an increasingly complex world.
