NI and Shanghai University Collaborate on a 5G Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Testbed for V2X Communications

National Instruments recently announced its plans to collaborate with Shanghai University to develop a testbed focused on 5G ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC) for V2X applications. Shanghai University and the city of Shanghai want to be leaders in advancing vehicular technologies especially around autonomous vehicles and V2X communications.

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.
