ITS Canada, OmniAir Consortium® and the Standards Council of Canada have entered into a landmark agreement that will advance the testing and certification for connected vehicle, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technologies.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) pledges collaboration between the three organizations in the development of a certification framework, the creation of a joint accreditation program for test laboratories and building awareness of the benefits of certification within the Canadian ITS stakeholder community. The organizations aim to create a single-window approach for stakeholders seeking accreditation, testing, or procurement of OmniAir Certified V2X devices.
The MOU, which was developed with support from Transport Canada’s Program to Advance Connectivity and Automation in the Transportation System, (ACATS) will help align Canadian and U.S. approaches to the testing and certification of connected vehicle safety technologies in the United States and Canada.
