CAMP at National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Crash Avoidance Metrics Partnership (CAMP) is a research consortium of automobile manufacturers. The USDOT, the Vehicle Safety Communications 3 (VSC3) Consortium (Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai-Kia, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Toyota, and Volkswagen-Audi), have initiated a three-year collaborative effort in the area of wireless-based safety applications under the V2V-Interoperability Project. Formally, this project i part of Track 2 of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Vehicle-to-Vehicle Safety Application Research plan. The goal of the interoperability project is to ensure that all V2V safety applications work across any and all equipped vehicles, regardless of make, model or qualified retrofit equipment. This project demonstrates deeper understanding of V2V products and relevant Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) standards (e.g., SAE J2735, IEEE 802.11p, IEEE1609.2-4, etc.) as they relate to V2X applications.

Savari was selected as the supplier for the development, supply and testing of On Board Equipment (OBE) for Over-The-Air (OTA) communications interoperability and scalability testing. This project demonstrates Savari’s experience in developing DSRC OBE to support accurate positioning of the vehicle and reliable communication using DSRC, both of which are critical for developing safety applications on On-Board-Units.
