World’s first V2X certified device tested by 7layers – Bureau Veritas

World's First V2X certified device for automotive is tested by 7layers - Bureau Veritas. As the first OmniAir Authorized Test Laboratory (OATL) in the world, we are proud to be the first OATL supporting the world’s first certified V2X device. We are ready to assist the connected vehicle market in addressing wireless conformance and interoperability of V2X devices.

 

World’s first V2Xcertified device tested by 7layers – Bureau Veritas

While there are many DSRC-V2X products on the market, there is only one which has gained certification through OmniAir’s connected vehicle certification conformance program, Commsignia’s Smart City On Board Unit. This first ever device certification is a critical milestone in deploying Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication technology nationwide in USA; an initiative that has its roots in the Mobility 2000 initiative in the late 1980s with the envisioning of advanced vehicle control systems.

Developed to support the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program, OmniAir Certification verifies that wireless enabled transportation products meet connectivity and interoperability testing requirements developed from IEEE and SAE communication standards for the V2X technology. A vital step in widespread V2X implementation, certification allows device manufacturers to obtain long-lasting security and trust credentials. Securing certified or trusted communications devices is the key to seeing national deployment of these life-saving devices and will help ensure that users can trust that the components will work within the system.

“Our Connected Car team has worked very closely with OmniAir as well as Commsignia and the test equipment partners in recent months in support of this major achievement,” commented Jennifer Gasparian, Automotive Market Segment Manager at Bureau Veritas. “This program is instrumental in making our roads safer, and vehicle transportation more efficient and environmentally friendly.”

“We are delighted to be able to support this ground breaking development,” continued Gasparian. “As the first OmniAir Authorized Test Laboratory (OATL) in the world, Bureau Veritas is proud to be the first OATL supporting the world’s first certified V2X device. We now anticipate a sharp increase in the number of companies pursing OmniAir Certification to verify their V2X device.”
V2X communication is the passing of information from a vehicle to any entity (vehicle, pedstrian, infrastructure, device, grid) that may affect the vehicle, and vice versa with its main motivations being significant improvement in safety, congestion and energy savings. The wireless technology behind the certified V2X device was Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC), a vehicular communication system based on WLAN technology.

As a longstanding partner and member of OmniAir, 7layers – a Bureau Veritas Group Company – is a leading testing and certification partner for companies seeking to meet DSRC and Cellular V2X standards worldwide.

New: ERA-GLONASS certification

ERA-GLONASS certification organized by 7layers
Component and vehicle certification for ERA-GLONASS via 7layers, the Vehicle-2-X experts

Ratingen, 17 July 2017: ERA-GLONASS emergency calling systems, which have to be installed into vehicles such as cars, busses or trucks within in the EURASIAN Customs Union, are expected to reduce the impact of road casualties considerably.

As reliability and interoperability are key for such a life-critical system, ERA-GLONASS certification requirements demand a number of tests which have to be passed successfully for either the in-vehicle component certification or certification of the complete vehicle. A confirmation of conformity is then issued by an ERA-GLONASS certification body, accredited by e.g. BSCA, the national accreditation body of BELARUS.

7layers, a well-known partner of the German automotive industry, has years of experience in bringing wireless-connected automotive devices to the global market. The company has now extended its offerings with ERA-GLONASS certification services. The test services encompass all relevant ERA-GLONASS standards for both component and vehicle certification. For certification 7layers is cooperating closely with BV-VEO in China, a subsidiary of its parent company Bureau Veritas.

 “We have been very eager to complement our connected-car portfolio with ERA-GLONASS services for our long standing automotive clients”, says Thami Elidrissi, Director Sales and Business Development at 7layers in Germany. “Thanks to our years’ of experience, we cannot only provide excellent project handling services for ERA-GLONASS certification, but can ideally combine this with further services such as pre-testing, antenna and module integration and other international market access services.”

  • Session-2 is open only to device vendors. It will focus on vendor-to-vendor connected vehicle device testing as needed to develop certification services for multi-vendor connected vehicle networks. Testing will be around standards such as SAE J2945/1, IEEE 802.11, IEEE 1609.2, IEEE 1609.3, and IEEE 1609.4.

The USDOT’s event page describes the session as follows

“Session-1 (November 15, 2016)

Presentations covering general interest topics will include participants from industry, USDOT management, and the Certification Operating Council. This session will be open to anyone who is interested in attending and will be broadcast on the web.

Session-2 (November 16-18, 2016)

Breakout sessions will focus on certification testing activities for organizations that are developing products, software, and systems for the Connected Vehicle Pilot sites. Opportunities for interoperability testing will be provided. This session will be limited to organizations that have devices or systems that they would like to verify against the test procedures offered. Private, indoor areas can be reserved to conduct bench testing and vehicle testing if needed; however, the USDOT will not be providing vehicles.”
