ITS Korea’s 2020 C-ITS K-Plugtest kicks off next week in Suwon, South Korea. The week-long, Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) testing event will assess device readiness and will bring together leading device manufacturers, test labs, and test equipment providers.
OmniAir Consortium® is a co-organizer of the K-Plugtest, which is scheduled to take place Monday, November 2 through Friday, November 6. The event will feature testing for both C-V2X PC5 and DSRC radios against OmniAir® test specifications, SCMS Security Certificate testing, field location accuracy, and interoperability testing. Bench testing will occur at the Suwon Convention Center, with field testing at the Korea Automobile Testing & Research Institute.
The event kicks off with an International Seminar on Monday, November 2, at 9:00 AM KST. OmniAir’s Executive Director, Jason Conley, will present on the Global Trend for Testing and Certification. Followed by David Sequino, Co-founder and CEO of Integrity Security Services and OmniAir Executive member, who will provide a unique perspective on the SCMS build-up across North America.
Under the auspices of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport (MOLIT) and the Cooperative Automated Driving Industry Development Council (CADIC), ITS Korea has provided specialized venues for testing connected vehicle technology.
C-ITS-related industry testing occurs twice a year, supporting technology development through business participation, which prepares V2X devices for certification and market entry. This event will support interoperability testing and provide consulting to device makers to support the commercialization of Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) technologies.
Next week’s K-Plugtest will introduce new certification tests, including OmniAir’s draft test specifications for C-V2X as well as a forum to discuss technology status for each region during international workshops.
OmniAir® and ITS Korea have been working in partnership over the past two years to promote alignment of testing and certification programs for connected vehicle technologies in Korea and the United States.
Event details are available on OmniAir’s website.
