The first IEEE802.11p-compliant V2X services are, Anritsu notes, already being deployed in Japan, and the US and Europe are rapidly rolling out commercial services. However, each region is using a different V2X standard, requiring automotive, in-vehicle and roadside equipment manufacturers to develop communications equipment supporting different regional standards. This is also coupled with the additional burden on development engineers to search and analyse large volumes of protocol data from V2X systems in order to identify incorrect message definitions.
The MX727000A Evaluation Software addresses some of these problems by analysing V2X messages without needing to search large amounts of data, leading to improved development efficiency. Testing for all regional standards is supported by one test platform, eliminating the need to purchase separate measuring instruments for each standard and layer.
The MX727000A PC application software product line is composed of three versions for the US (MX727020A), Europe (MX727030A), and Japan (MX727040A) and can be used in combination with either the Anritsu Signal Analyzer MS269xA or MS2830A to analyse V2X messages captured from in-vehicle and roadside equipment. The Signal Analyzer captures the live V2X messages exchanged between the vehicle and roadside equipment, which are then analysed by the MX727000A software to provide objective evaluation results.
