Track 1: Policy Research Related to Certification

Research Accomplishments
  • The US DOT has worked with industry stakeholders to identify the need for and scope of certification policies.
Critical Research Insights
  • Preliminary research has identified the basis for certification policies. This basis is grounded in the assumption that core system interfaces may require greater controls, management, and oversight due to higher risks.
Next Steps
  • Work with the ITS Standards team to launch analysis in summer of 2012 that will result in an interface inventory in spring of 2013.
  • Results will be used to inform the development of draft certification policies for the Connected Vehicle Environment.

Track 2: Technical Requirements for Certification

Research Accomplishments
  • The US DOT and industry stakeholders have defined an initial process that will be applied to devices and applications for the Safety Pilot Model Deployment. The results of those implementations will identify gaps and guide the definition of any further technical research that may be needed.
Critical Research Insights
  • All levels of the system need to be included in certification processes from the physical aspects of the communication media to the applications that rely on the communications.
  • Appropriate organizations need to be involved in the certification process. Different skills are needed at the different levels of the system.
Next Steps
  • Analyze results of the Safety Pilot implementation.
