Certification Aspects of a Connected Vehicle
Autonomous cars are latest evolution or disruption in the Car Industry, and with a primary focus of significantly improving the safety, reliability and disrupt the experience around transportation. The next leap in car technology is primarily driven as the adjacent technologies evolved to provide reliable solutions in the space of Connectivity (LTE and heralding to 5G), Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision, High Speed In-Vehicle networking and fail safe hardware and software solutions. Improving, enhancing and aiding the autonomous cars with non-line of sight information greatly enhances the ability to make more informed decisions and greatly enhancing the safety. The process of gathering, and transmission of information in a vehicular systems (Vehicles, Vehicle networks, and Infrastructure) is broadly termed as V2X. Automotive vehicle-to-everything (V2X) - vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-pedestrian (V2P), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), vehicle-to-network (V2N) market is expected to be valued at USD 767.5 Million in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 2,815.5 Million by 2022. The V2X technology is still in incubation phase and the technological evolution is expected in phases over a period of next few years. Following are the major requirement categories that will be focused upon: 1.The system should consistently behave as expected to deliver the required functionality in any reasonable scenario. The adopted technologies should be able to provide service in all scenarios – in- out-of-coverage, non-subscribed users and network gaps. 2.Guarantee interoperability among their own devices and devices produced by other manufacturers. Two of the completing technologies like DSRC and LTE-V2X (possibly New Radio definition for 5G) will need to find a mechanism to co-exist and provide basic emergency services to all users. 3. Under all circumstances the safety of the driver and the passengers of the vehicle should not be compromised. Primarily address issues related to security credential management, deliberate and accidental jamming and advanced hacking and spoofing. 4. Reliability and latency aspects should conform to the expectations. The connected vehicle should comply with the Quality of Service guarantees. 5. Secure transmission across diverse connectivity pipes. 6. New standards need to be evolved for vehicle type approval to take care of regulatory and industrial specifications. One of the important aspects to recognize is individual technologies and their certification process could evolve marginally but the real challenges are around certifying the validity/accuracy/authenticity of the transmission from heterogeneous communication end points across V2X spectrum, as the information forms a vector into the decision matrix. This presentation will highlight how these requirements shall impose critical certification needs before these technologies could be commercially available in the intelligent transport systems.
