It is necessary to standardize the interfaces and data structures in good time for the universal use of the technologies that are likely to become established in the automotive industry. This can be seen from the experience of standardizing optical identification media such as barcodes and radio-based identification media such as RFID. For example, it is foreseeable that technologies such as Bluetooth and Ultra Wide Band will be used more and more frequently in the logistics process chain. The aspects of authenticity and integrity of the information may also play a role.
Note: VDA 5050 is currently being revised by a working group of VDA and VDMA to a version 2, which will be published in H1 2022.
Topics that the AK deals with:
Sensor technology (own status, physical quantities, coordinates)
Technology-independent standards for data structure and data exchange
Quality requirements for technology from the process point of view, quality assurance measures related to the respective technology
Usage for anti-counterfeiting
Utilization evaluation of new technologies and, if necessary, influence on important technology properties and standardization requirements for the automotive industry (e.g. data quality and security, frequency utilization plans of ETSI, data authenticity and protection)
Cooperation with AK SID regarding standardized solutions for data exchange with a focus on Track & Trace
Cooperation with DIN and ISO committees as well as international organizations in the automotive industry
Exchange of information with other professional associations (such as AIM, ZVEI) as required
