How should the automotive industry test V2X systems?

OmniAir associate-level member, Spirent developed a white paper that addresses several hurdles that V2X stakeholders will need to overcome, and quickly if the promised advances in connected vehicle functionality are going to meet users’ expectations:
  1. Integrating heterogeneous systems
    Systems engineers will need to predict, account for and reconcile a rapidly increasing variety of factors – both inside and outside the vehicle itself – and enable the vehicle to process and prioritize the information correctly
  2. Sheer technical complexity
    Even by the high standards of the automotive industry, creating a working V2X system is a difficult technical challenge. Each V2X system will need to interface on many fronts – including several that are wireless or based on technologies which are new and, as yet, not fully proven.
  3. Satisfying stringent requirements
    Before a V2X system is deemed acceptable for the market; it will need to deliver consistently high standards across a range of requirements.
  4. Susceptibility to channel interference
    Any wireless communication channels that V2X system uses could be affected by signal interference and other impairments.
  5. Improving security against cyber attacks
    The risks to connected vehicles from deliberate hacking and spoofing are real, current, and growing.
  6. Meeting regulatory legislation and standardization
    To ensure safety and interoperability, authorities in the US and EU are taking an active interest in V2X, establishing standards, with regulatory legislation likely to follow.
  7. Rapidly changing market conditions
    Drivers have always demanded absolute reliability from automotive systems – with significant brand damage if a manufacturer acquires a poor reputation.
