Rohde & Schwarz joins Car Connectivity Consortium to support development of smartphone-to-car communications including UWB
Rohde & Schwarz has joined the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) to support the organization’s mission to foster industrywide standards for communications between vehicles and smartphones. The company will contribute its broad expertise in mobile device and automotive technology testing. In particular, the company will provide its solutions for the development and production of UWB devices and modules for automotive applications such as keyless vehicle access.
The CCC is a cross-industry organization that advances technologies for smartphone-to-car connectivity solutions. The recently launched CCC Digital Key Release 3.0 specification enables compatible mobile devices to perform passive keyless access and start the engine via UWB in combination with Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE).
UWB is a radio based communications technology for short range, high speed spatial and directional transmission of data. It is likely to feature on a wide range of computer devices and IoT peripherals in the future. Testing the performance of UWB devices is important in the lab and on the production line to ensure compatibility and correct operation. As a leader in wireless device testing, Rohde & Schwarz provides a full range of UWB test solutions for R&D, certification and production that accurately measure key parameters such as time of flight (ToF) and angle of arrival (AoA).
