Anritsu Corporation has announced the launch of its LTE V2X PC5 Communications Software MX725000A to evaluate the function of PC5 of Cellular V2X (C-V2X)
This software links the communications reference module, V2X emulator software, and GNSS simulator to support evaluation of V2X (C-V2X) PC5 communications for future vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications; it supports typical national use cases defined by the ITS standards.
Costs are kept low by the simple equipment configuration and easy-to-use GUI that eliminates test-scenario programming expenses. As a result, multiple evaluation scenarios can be tested easily to help improve the quality of V2V and V2I communications.
The C-V2X PC5 standard defined by 3GPP Release 14 is essential for implementing self-driving vehicles and the “connected car.” PC5 is a communications technology for directly exchanging data between vehicles (V2V), as well as between vehicles and roadside equipment (V2R) interactively. Hazard data obtained by communications using the high-speed, low-latency C-V2X PC5 interface helps support driver safety and amenity, facilitating connected-car development.
Since PC5 communications over C-V2X play a critical role in preventing road accidents and assuring safety, R&D sections of automobile OEMs and Tier 1 makers must perform a variety of function and regression tests. Previous evaluation incurred high development costs for programming required scenarios for testing combinations of communications and vehicle driving conditions. Moreover, earlier systems for evaluating C-V2X PC5 communications functions have been configured using expensive equipment, while creation of test scenarios requires high-level protocol programming skills, so there is urgent demand for a less-expensive and more responsive evaluation system.
Consequently, Anritsu has developed its LTE V2X PC5 Communications Software MX725000A to solve these problems for its customers.

The LTE V2X PC5 Communications Software MX725000A for evaluating PC5 communications functions supports typical use cases defined by national ITS standards. It operates by linking the C-V2X reference module, V2X emulator software, and GNSS simulator.
Use of a commercial C-V2X reference module eliminates the need for expensive equipment, helping cut costs. Evaluation scenarios are selected using a menu-style GUI, while vehicles are emulated realistically on geographical maps on the C-V2X emulator screen for easy-to-understand evaluations, helping improve communications quality for vehicles with C-V2X functions and cutting development times.
Moreover, scenarios are created using a menu-style format, while realistic vehicles are emulated on geographical maps for graphical easy-to-understand evaluations, confirming communications logs and helping to improve communications quality and cut development times.
