~ providing conformance certification for emerging Connected Vehicle and Automation Market ~
Irvine, USA, September 7, 2017 - 7layers, a Bureau Veritas Group Company, has been authorized by the OmniAir Consortium as the first OmniAir Authorized Test Laboratory (OATL) for Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) based Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) technology. 7layers also announces its launching of OmniAir’s commercial Connected Vehicle certification program on October 1, 2017.
OmniAir Consortium (http://www.omniair.org) is the leading industry association promoting interoperability and certification in ITS, tolling, IoT technologies and connected vehicles. OmiAir and its members have worked collaboratively with transportation stakeholders to develop requirements and specifications for both tolling and Connected Vehicles. Since 2012, OmniAir has certified RFID tags and readers used in electronic toll collection systems.
OmniAir’s certification program provides third party accredited laboratory testing and validation of DSRC-based V2X devices for device manufacturers, suppliers and automotive OEMs entering the V2X market. It validates the products that conform to industry protocol standards and specifications for device communications.
7layers runs engineering and test centers specializing in wireless technologies. 7layers supports the development, testing and market access processes of connected devices, as well as the set-up and maintenance of smart IoT services through its test products and services. With facilities in North America, Europe and Asia, 7layers works with manufacturers, network operators, technology developers and organizations supporting wireless technologies across multiple industries, including the fast-growing automotive market with its Vehicle-to-Everything applications. As a member of OmniAir, 7layers participated in developing the Connected Vehicle Next Stage Certification Program, initiated by the US Department of Transportation (USDOT).
“Independent, third party certification for interoperable devices is a vital step that reveals a level of readiness and maturity of the technology,” said OmniAir Consortium’s, Executive Director Jason Conley. “Security certificate authorities are also looking at third party certification to serve as a litmus test deciding which devices will receive production certificates.”
Fernando Rodríguez, CEO of 7layers commented: “We are thrilled to be selected as the first OmniAir Authorized Test Laboratory for the Connected Vehicle certification program. We expect this program to be an important step in making our roads safer, and vehicle transport more efficient and environmentally friendly. As an OATL, 7layers now has the chance to support industry innovation through certification, by letting good quality products stand out in the V2X market.”
