DEKRA’s laboratory based in Málaga, Spain is the first OmniAir Authorized Test Laboratory in Europe (OATL). The lab covers the testing and certification for Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) based Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) technology according to OmniAir requirements. DEKRA is also offering testing services against V2X European standards (ITS-G5) and US and EU regulatory certification for V2X devices.
As a member of OmniAir, DEKRA helps shape the V2X ecosystem through its participation in OmniAir’s Certification, Technical and Cybersecurity working groups. Our unique connected car test area in Málaga, Spain, replicates real-life operation and behavior.
This includes real and simulated infrastructure elements and vehicles as well as replicas of elements that interact with devices during testing. It is the ideal environment for R&D testing, pre-testing and testing for certification. It is an important component of the international testing network for connected and automated driving, which DEKRA is establishing. Another part of this is the recently acquired Lausitzring racetrack in Germany, which is Europe’s largest independent testing center for connected and automated driving. Moreover, the test capabilities cover interoperability testing between devices from different vendors and security testing for even more advanced tests such as penetration tests for V2X devices.
DEKRA offers a complete scope of laboratory testing, test area testing, field testing, certification services and market-based cybersecurity assessments to meet your testing and certification needs for the connected car, now and in the future. Key aspects we can help you with include wireless connections, interoperability, electromagnetic compatibility, cybersecurity and functional safety.
