OmniAir Michigan  Plugfest 

June 14 -18 

The OmniAir Michigan Plugfest is the premiere readiness testing event for connected vehicle technologies, bringing together V2X Device Manufacturers, Test Laboratories, and Test Tool Providers from around the world to test in a cooperative environment. 

The event will follow a hybrid meeting format allowing for limited in-person gathering, in addition to device testing through virtual witnessing via video platform. V2X device makers unable to attend in-person will have the option to ship their device(s) and experience device testing through virtual witnessing or to arrange a consultation to discuss results.  This format will allow for greater participation while adhering to current recommended safety guidelines. 

OmniAir Consortium and its event partners are committed to supporting a safe experience.  The health and safety of all event participants is our top priority.

Like all Plugfest events, this event will be cooperative, and open to all OmniAir members.

The OmniAir Michigan Plugfest is a week-long testing event with a focus on cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) testing. 

The primary objective of the Michigan Plugfest is to evaluate the readiness of V2X devices and test tools based off of our Release 1 test cases developed for OmniAir’s C-V2X certification program, the world’s first, for roadside-units (RSU) and onboard-units (OBU).  

This year’s event will feature a combination of remote and in-person testing. Bench and conformance testing will take place at our host facility in Novi, Michigan at Danlaw. 

Field interoperability and applications testing will take place at the Mcity Test Facility in Ann Arbor.  

OmniAir technical staff and participating OmniAir Authorized Test Lab (OATL) personnel, along with a combination of test equipment provided by OmniAir member companies, will perform tests for our members and strategic partners. V2X device makers unable to attend in-person will have the option to  ship their device and experience device testing through virtual witnessing via video platform, or arrange a consultation to discuss results. 

The OmniAir Michigan Plugfest will offer the following testing for conformance, interoperability, and security in both lab and field environments.

  • Radio testing for LTE-V2X (C-V2X PC5)
  • Upper Layer Conformance testing against OmniAir specifications for LTE-V2X (C-V2X PC5)
  • BSM Performance & Location Accuracy Testing for DSRC (upon advance request) and LTE-V2X (C-V2X PC5)
  • BSM Application Drive Comparison Testing for LTE-V2X (C-V2X PC5) 
  • SCMS Security Certificate Testing and Multi-source Certificate Interoperability Testing
