Connected car to demo diagnostics M2M communication on LTE network simulator

February 03, 2015 // By Julien Happich
At the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2015 (Barcelona, 2-5 March), Anritsu will be showcasing a cloud-based connected car system for fleet tracking, developed by the University of Hertfordshire in the UK with the help of network simulation technology from Anritsu.

The connected car demonstration will show a car’s diagnostics system connecting to the cloud via a simulated LTE network environment provided by Anritsu’s mobile network simulator, the MD8475A.

An application in the cloud enables a fleet manager on any internet-connected device to view the location and operating parameters of any vehicle in the fleet in real time.

The MD8475A enables the university’s development team to test, from their Hertfordshire laboratory and with a single instrument, how the system’s in-car LTE modem would perform in mobile networks all across the world, and operating according to all major worldwide standards.
