Vehicle Level Validation Test Procedures for V2V Safety Communications J3161/1A_202204

This document provides vehicle-level data collection, data analysis, and data verification procedures that may be used to verify that an instrument under test (IUT) satisfies the vehicle-level requirements specified in SAE J3161/1. For the purposes of this report, “vehicle-level requirements” primarily consist of those requirements which can be verified external to the vehicle. The IUT for these procedures is a configured LTE-V2X vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) device as defined in SAE J3161/1 and is installed on a light vehicle1 or public safety vehicle2. While the IUT is conceptually separated from the vehicle it is installed on, the tests outlined in this document are primarily vehicle-level so the terms “vehicle” and “IUT” can generally be considered interchangeable. Additionally, non-vehicle-level complimentary tests, not included in this document, are required to verify that the entire set of requirements specified in SAE J3161/1 is satisfied.
This document also includes a Traceability Matrix to provide traceability between SAE J3161/1 sections and the test procedures. This can be used to ensure thoroughness of testing coverage. The traceability matrix in Section 7 correlates test procedures from this document with the sections in SAE J3161/1 being tested.
The SAE J3161/1 sections that are addressed in this document are indicated in Table 1. SAE J3161/1 major section numbers that are indicated as N/A do not contain any requirements (subsections may include requirements). Sections that are not in scope, such as standards profiles, are expected to be tested and verified as part of device-level certification, done prior to the vehicle-level testing described in this document.
