iMobility Forum – Standardisation and Certification Workshop
June 13, 2013 @ 11:00 pm - June 15, 2013 @ 10:59 pm
ITS standardisation has reached a level of maturity enabling many applications and services to reach the marketplace. Most of the ITS applications are based on communication services requiring interoperability as well as some minimum level of performance and reliability. Certification is therefore critical to allow the successful deployment of ITS systems and services.
This workshop aims at introducing the certification issues, being a relevant part of the whole standardisation process. Furthermore needs from different stakeholders about certification will be presented and discussed. Finally, testing tools and methodologies forming the essential part of the certification toolbox will be explained.
The workshop comprises 3 sessions that address the following topics:
Session 1: Enabling ITS certification through standardisation ITS systems will rely on interoperable services, granted by international standards. Certification schemes will therefore refer to requirements stated in these standards. Furthermore certification requires using testing procedures published by SODs in technical specification standards. The absence of an EU-wide scheme for standardisation and the certification of ITS systems has been a major cause for the fragmentation of ITS systems deployment. This hampers investments and efficiency, and it hinders interoperability as a major driver for deployment. Certification is necessary to make investors, road operators, public Authority, ITS vendors, vehicle manufacturer and end users confident about cooperative ITS devices.
Session 2: Stakeholder needs on ITS Certification Interoperability is a capability of the ITS systems and services that shall be assessed at a global level. However stakeholders from different ITS sectors are likely to have different needs. Understanding the needs from all relevant stakeholders is critical to ensure a global certification framework is applied to ITS systems and services. This session aims at presenting stakeholder views. Furthermore, discussions among the relevant stakeholders shall take place to collect requirements and needs for suitable certification activities.
Session 3: Toolbox for certification of ITS systems and services Certifying equipment results from assessing its compliancy against requirements, a process which requires carrying out many different and complementary tests. The certification toolbox includes tools and methodologies necessary to perform the compliancy tests. Testing experts will use their know-how to provide comprehensive presentation of the toolbox components.
