National Instrument and Shanghai University collaborate on 5G-based V2X

National Instruments have announced plans to collaborate with Shanghai University on a testbed focused on 5G ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC) for V2X applications.

Vehicular networks, especially for autonomous driving applications, must offer ultra-reliability while requiring very low latency. Given the conflicting nature of these dual requirements and the unpredictability of the mobile wireless channel, a real-time experimental testbed where researchers can prototype their ideas is vital for success.

The planned testbed for this collaboration will be built on NI’s flexible software defined radio (SDR) hardware and a 5G New Radio URLLC reference design.
