World’s first conformance test system for V2X and ITS launched

The world’s first RF (Radio Frequency) multi-standard conformance test system for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) applications has been launched in Germany. Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) has introduced the TS-ITS100 test system, which is specifically designed for the standard-compliant testing of components for V2V, vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) applications and ITS equipment. The new TS-ITS100 provides the automotive industry with the first fully-automated test system for standard-compliant testing of RF components in line with the USA’s IEEE 802.11p standard for WAVE (Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments). Due to its compact size, the RF conformance test system can be used throughout the entire value chain; from R&D to pre-compliance and compliance testing.

Using the R&S CONTEST sequencer software, which was developed especially for RF conformance tests, the new test system makes it possible to verify compliance with the current regional standards: ETSI EN 302 571 in the European Union; IEEE 802.11-2012 in the USA; and the ARIB standard in Japan. These standards ensure that 802.11p user equipment works smoothly within the available spectrum and does not interfere with adjacent services in the licensed ITS 5.9GHz (5.85-5.925GHz) waveband. Taking fading into consideration, the TS ITS100 also covers specific performance tests as defined by the Car 2 Car Communication Consortium (C2C-CC), of which Rohde & Schwarz is a member. These tests are performed to verify the quality and reliability of 802.11p user equipment in traveling vehicles and their changing surroundings.

The CONTEST software can be used to create fully automatic test sequences by simply dragging and dropping the desired test cases into a test plan. It also offers many other useful tools for analysis and evaluation, such as test results that can be summarized in clear and concise reports. The R&S OSP-ITS switch matrix is integrated into the system and automatically switches all paths needed for the test, including the required filters. This makes test results easy to reproduce. The equipment offers highest measurement accuracy and fast test runs through the combination of the R&S SMW200A high-end vector signal generator, which generates the 802.11p signals, and the R&S FSV30 signal and spectrum analyzer, which analyzes the modulation quality of the signals.
