Nordsys has unveiled its mobile test and diagnosic tool for car2x communication environments. The waveBEE touch system is a ruggedised tablet computer that receives wireless communication based on Europe’s ETSI/ITS and the US’s IEEE WAVE specifications and enables the operator to analyse car2X messages in detail.
The tablet allows car2X communication data to be received, visualised and analysed ‘in the field’. Until now, such messages have usually been recorded in equipment-filled vehicles and taken back to base for analysis.
Errors in car2X test scenarios can be detected by the tablet from ranges of around 500m to 3km.
A car2X-equipped vehicle can generate warnings for events such as nearby emergency or broken-down vehicles, as well as poor conditions such as slippery roads.
