Successful debut for Car-to-X test systems

C2C-Forum2014It had something of a premiere: For the first time Qosmotec officially showcased its test bench setup for Car-to-X communication testing. At the 8th Car2Car Forum at Stadthalle Braunschweig we had built up our 5-port QPER system with two IEEE 802.11p capable radio modules communicating with each other via a radio link, on which signal strength was controlled by our emulation software. Additionally, the two modules were controlled via the CANoe software from Vector Informatik. “Last year at the Car2Car Forum in Munich, we planned to establish this co-operation with Vector. At this time, we did not even have the slightest idea, whether those to systems really fit together. All the more proud we are that we could demonstrate a fully integrated environment, executing several typical traffic scenarios like emergency break situations, slow vehicle warnings or communication between cars and infrastructure like traffic lights, only eleven months later ”, says Qosmotec’s Managing Director Mark Hakim.

The demonstration attracted many of the 250 congress participants, who appreciated to see a complete example for a hardware-in-the-loop test benches on our booth. Together with car manufacturers and vendors of radio equipment, we identified an important application case, that shall be followed up in the near future. “We want to proof the negative impact of WLAN noise from IEEE 802.11ac and 802.11n on the Car-to-car communication”, says Mark Hakim.

Besides to this setup we showed a first concept, how to extend interoperability tests with other signal propagation effects like Doppler and Multipath fading. Also we specified on the congress, how to support the ETSI Plugtest, that will be hosted by TASS international in March next year in Helmond, with Qosmotec test equipment.

Qosmotec at 8th Car2Car Forum 2014

DruckQosmotec presents its new test bench set-up for Car-to-Car Communication. It is a combination of our signal strength emulator QPER-C2X and Vector’s CANoe software offering a perfect platform for for automised tests in labs under real RF conditions.


October 21st and 22nd 2014


At the 8th Car2Car Forum at Stadthalle Braunschweig, Germany

The Car2Car Forum is the Car2Car Consortium’s (C2C-CC) annual congress. C2C-CC is a nonprofit organisation of European vehicle manufacturers and equipment suppliers, dedicated to the objective of further increasing road traffic safety and efficiency by means of co-operative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) with Car-to-X Communication.

Qosmotec’s managing director, Mark Hakim, and Ferdinand Schuber, Head of Sales, will showcase the new test system and examples of use.

We are looking forward to meet you in Braunschweig.
