Wireless Environment

The ACE wireless environment can enhance and fast-track;

The Development of:

  • Autonomous Vehicles
  • Connected Vehicles
  • Wireless Automotive Systems

We have created an environment where companies can test:

  • Performance of AV sensors and antennas in a full-scale automotive climatic environment.
  • Performance of radar systems under severe weather environments (e.g. snowstorm).
  • Transmission and emissions of information; including indoor GPS, DSRC, antennae power, Radar and LiDAR system signal degradation measurements. 

GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) simulation.  Allow generation of fixed and moving profile of coordinates based on GPS, Galileo, BeiDou and/or GLONASS networks. Power levels are controllable and any coordinates are possible.  Useful for checking GNSS module sensitivity vs. climate or for doing other tests when GNSS system like GPS is required to enhance the simulation.

V2X transmission standards, specifically DSRC, ITS-G5 and WAVE power analysis vs. climate using the 802.11p standard. Set a reference power level with your module, change the environment and see how your transmission power has been affected. (2020 Planned Enhancement)

Enhancement to include C-VSX based on 3Gpp release 16 to measure module transmission power analysis vs. climate on this new standard.
