STEERING COMMITTEE FOR THE INTERNET OF THINGS HOLDS FIRST MEETING
SAE has launched a strategic steering committee for the
Internet of Things (IoT). The steering committee will be tasked
with providing guidance for future IoT standardization topics
including: smart data (including energy infrastructure and
cities); vehicle data and network ownership, governance, and
analytics; platform and interface best practices; and mapping
network protocols or operating system maintenance, which
may support or benefit from SAE automotive IoT standards.
The steering committee held a kickoff meeting in January,
and a follow-up meeting in February to further define their
action plans and deliverables. Monthly meetings are
expected to be held for the remainder of the year, and an
update will be provided at the SAE 2016 Convergence meeting,
September 19-21.
One key issue already identified by industry is IoT standardization
for creating, gathering, analyzing, and leveraging IoT data into
smart, actionable information. Topics under smart data would
include big data, data acquisition, metadata, linked data, over
the air and hardwired data transfer, semantics, communication
protocols, interoperability, and data analysis.
The committee will also work on: identifying existing IoT
domain policies, regulations, frameworks, and standards;

outlining cross-industry collaboration models, alliances,
and frameworks; and identifying blocks and hurdles to IoT
implementation.
The topic of cybersecurity, integral to the success of IoT,
will be handled in tandem with an existing SAE standards
committee. The IoT Strategic Steering Committee will also
make every effort to collaborate and take into consideration
IoT standards and frameworks developed or under
development in other domains.

NHTSA PROPOSES UPDATING FMVSS REQUIREMENT TO ALIGN WITH SAE J1766
On March 4, The US Department of Transportation's National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued a
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to update electrical
safety requirements for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and mild
hybrid vehicles.
The proposed updates to FMVSS No. 305 ("Electric-Powered
Vehicles: Electrolyte Spillage and Electrical Shock Protection")

will align that standard with the latest version of SAE J1766,
"Recommended Practice for Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicle
Battery Systems Crash Integrity Testing," issued by the Fuel Cell
Standards Committee and most recently updated in 2014.

AN ECONOMICAL PATHWAY FOR JOINT VENTURE RESEARCH:
THE COOPERATIVE RESEARCH PROGRAM OF SAE
Cooperative research ventures serve to bring more minds to the challenges and
issues faced by industry. The result is a more robust project than each participating
organization could complete independently. The pooling of financial resources also
affords each participant more efficient use of their research budgets and eliminates
duplication of efforts. Whether moving forward on the development of fuel cell
standards...researching alternative refrigerants...or developing a database of human
body measurements to foster ergonomic designs, SAE's Cooperative Research
Program can assist your company in its collaborative research needs.
