Details

The One Box Single Vehicle Architecture (OBSVA) Criteria sets out the requirements and testing regime for an electronic infrastructure intended to be fitted to emergency service vehicles - whether as original equipment (OE) or aftermarket fit. This will be used to provide power, control input and to process any output from all specialised emergency service equipment fitted to these vehicles by reusing and interfacing with existing vehicle electronic systems, wherever possible.

OBSVA compliance is mandatory for all relevant police vehicles and equipment from September 2012.
