NI, Shanghai University work together on 5G testbed for V2X communications

NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world´s greatest engineering challenges, has announced plans to collaborate with Shanghai University on a testbed focused on 5G ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC) for V2X applications, the company said.

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.

Immersed in the distinguished heritage and pioneering track record in a global city, Shanghai University is situated in the heart of Shanghai. We combine educational achievement with forward-looking courses and world class research that are attuned to the latest city developments in science, technology and culture.

NI ( empowers engineers and scientists with a software-centric platform that incorporates modular hardware and an expansive ecosystem. This proven approach puts users firmly in control of defining what they need to accelerate their system design within test, measurement and control. NI´s solution helps build high-performance systems that exceed requirements, quickly adapt to change and ultimately improve the world.
