This part of ISO/TS 13143 specifies the abstract test suite (ATS) to evaluate the conformity of on-board equipment (OBE) and roadside equipment (RSE) to ISO/TS 12813.
It provides a basis for conformance tests for dedicated short range communication (DSRC) equipment (onboard units and roadside equipment) to enable interoperability between equipment supplied by different manufacturers.
In order to ascertain that OBE and RSE fulfill essential radio requirements, they are also likely to be subject to additional factory, site and system acceptance testing (e.g. of physical and environmental endurance, quality assurance and control at manufacturing, and charge point integration), which is outside the scope of this part of ISO/TS 13143.
NOTE: For example, within the European market, the essential radio requirements are set out in European Directives, compliance with which is a prerequisite for CE marking and placing on the European market.
