On-Board System Requirements for V2V Safety Communications
This standard specifies the system requirements for an on-board vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) safety communications system for light vehicles , including standards profiles, functional requirements, and performance requirements. The system is capable of transmitting and receiving the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) J2735-defined Basic Safety Message (BSM)  over a Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) wireless communications link as defined in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1609 suite and IEEE 802.11 standards  – .
Rationale: This standard is the first edition of on-board system requirements for V2V safety communications. It provides the information necessary to build interoperable systems that support select safety applications, which rely on the exchange of Basic Safety Messages.
