Register for Event

Although winter’s in full swing, it’s not too early to start planning for spring–sunshine, warm weather, and V2X testing!

Join us May 7-11 for OmniAir Consortium’s Motor City Plugfest and Connected Vehicle Workshop, in Michigan.  This year’s Plugfest will be bigger and better than ever! OmniAir is partnering with Intertek, to host the event at their testing facility in Plymouth.  Field testing will take place at the American Center for Mobility‘s Willow Run test track in Ypsilanti.


What to Expect

The week starts off with a one-day workshop and reception, featuring leading government and industry experts–discussing policy, technical, and operational issues related to Connected and Automated Vehicle transportation environment leading toward conformance / interoperability and trusted device communications.  This will be followed by 4 days of intensive bench and field testing–with testing stations operated by leading test laboratories and test tool providers and parallel educational/informational sessions.

Bench testing at Intertek will be conducted in separate spaces allowing device makers and test providers a high level of privacy. There will be individual test sessions, group interoperability, and parallel learning sessions.

Field Testing at the American Center for Mobility’s site comes with a number features.  Plugfest participants will appreciate including double overpasses, a railroad crossing, and a highway loop to test at sustained highway speeds. Testing can occur during all four seasons, day and night, in sun, rain, ice, and snow.

Do you have OmniAir Certification? If so, you still have several reasons to participate.  There are a few new test procedures for you and those that are close to certification.

  • SAE J2945.1 V-V BSMs Minimum Performance
  • Message and Device Interoperability
  • V2I Field Testing
  • High precision location-based OBU testing
