DEKRA first OmniAir authorized test lab in Europe

| 25 April, 2018 |

International expert organization DEKRA has expanded its conformance and interoperability certification program with OmniAir. DEKRA’s laboratory and connected car test area in Malaga, Spain is now an OmniAir Authorized Test Laboratory (OATL) for dedicated short-range communications (DSRC)-based vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) technology.

At their connected car test area DEKRA exercises connected car scenarios using V2X beacons as well as safety applications, such as forward collision warnings, 'heavy braking ahead,' intersection collision warnings and road-side infrastructure warnings. The test track includes a 90-meter long tunnel and a simulated cityscape with intersections and curves.
OmniAir’s certification program provides third-party accredited laboratory testing and validation of DSRC-based V2V devices to ensure that device manufacturers, suppliers and automotive OEMs develop products that conform to industry standards and specifications, leading to trusted device communications.
Fernando Hardasmal, Managing Director at DEKRA Testing & Certification: “The recognition by OmniAir is in line with our vision of becoming the global partner for a safe connected world. Being able to offer IoV conformance and interoperability services for V2X devices with OmniAir are proof of the efforts that we have put into the development of our facilities.”
Jason Conley, Executive Director at the OmniAir Consortium: "I cannot think of a better time to announce that DEKRA has become an OATL. Independent, third-party certification for conformance and interoperability of V2X devices is necessary for the public to fully accept and adopt connected and autonomous vehicles.”
