OnBoard Security® announced that their Aerolink® Communications Security is being used to protect Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications for the Ann Arbor Connected Vehicle Test Environment (AACVTE) project. The Ann Arbor based connected vehicle and infrastructure living laboratory will include approximately 3000 vehicles and over 100 miles of roads, with onboard units provided by Danlaw and Aptiv and road side units from Lear and Savari, all of which use Aerolink Communications Security.

UMTRI and its partners have maintained dominance in the field of connected vehicle transportation, including research and deployments. The Ann Arbor living lab serves as a reference environment for other connected vehicle deployments including the U.S. DOT’s pilots in New York, Florida and Wyoming

OnBoard Security®, an industry leader in automotive cyber security solutions, announced today that their Aerolink® Communications Security is being used to protect Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications for the Ann Arbor Connected Vehicle Test Environment (AACVTE) project.

The Ann Arbor based connected vehicle and infrastructure living laboratory will include approximately 3000 vehicles and over 100 miles of roads. The living lab included the onboard units provided by Danlaw and Aptiv and road side units (RSUs) from Lear and Savari, all of which use Aerolink Communications Security.

OnBoard Security’s Aerolink Communications Security libraries implement the IEEE 1609.2 standard for connected vehicle security which defines how to sign and verify transmitted messages, protect driver privacy and ignore misbehaving vehicles. Aerolink Communications Security has been used in almost every pilot deployment as well as the Cadillac CTS, the first production vehicle to offer V2X capability.

“We are proud to work closely with UMTRI and our industry partners by contributing our cybersecurity expertise in the Ann Arbor deployment,” explained Mark Peters, Automotive Business Development Director for OnBoard Security.

“UMTRI and its partners have maintained dominance in the field of connected vehicle transportation, including research and deployments. The Ann Arbor living lab serves as a reference environment for other connected vehicle deployments including the U.S. DOT’s pilots in New York, Florida and Wyoming,” said Debby Bezzina

In 2012, UMTRI and the U.S. Department of Transportation launched the Safety Pilot Model Deployment (SPMD), a $50 million research project to assess the effectiveness of connected vehicle safety applications at reducing crashes. Building on the success of SPMD, UMTRI and its partners are expanding the existing infrastructure footprint from northeast Ann Arbor to the entire 27 square miles of the city of Ann Arbor with additional vehicle deployments.
