Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication technology is supposed to turn separate vehicles into a connected system of road users in the foreseeable future. To develop and test such systems in a holistic fashion today, the options are to use either large-scale network simulation or small-scale experimentation. Combinations following the Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) concept are not readily available. Our ego vehicle approach tackles this problem by coupling existing tools of different scales and levels of detail. However, the coupling of real-time systems with non-real-time event-based simulation brings many new challenges. We proposed to simulate only a selection of road traffic and communication around a selected ego vehicle, thus, reducing the computation effort to a achievable amount. We showcase our approach for an urban scenario with beaconing using the Veins simulator controlled via the Ego Vehicle Interface (EVI). Result show that only a small number of vehicles are needed to perform a complete simulation for the perspective of the ego vehicle in a typical urban scenario, which can easily be achieved by Veins on a typical PC platform. We see our real- time interactive V2X simulation platform as a step towards more integrated system design and test for future connected cars.
