Developing Functionalities for Connected Vehicles

It is difficult to imagine new vehicles be successful without connectivity.

And yet, the age of connected cars has just begun. The next generation of applications based on cellular V2X (C-V2X) or dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) will allow vehicles to ‘see through the eyes’ of their traffic fellows and significantly extend the sensing range provided by their own sensors, such as cameras, radar, or lidar. Collective perception paired with cooperative driving will lift vehicles up to the next level of safety, comfort, and efficiency. Over-the-air (OTA) applications will become a key enabler for software-defined vehicles, and 5G complemented by edge computing will ring in a new era of smart mobility and connected automated driving. No matter your requirements or preferences for communication technology, joint solutions from dSPACE and our cooperation partners will help implement your idea of connected cars and launch them on the market faster.

The following examples give you an overview of the wide range of dSPACE solutions for developing, testing, and validating functionalities for connected vehicles:
