OmniAir Consortium®, the leading industry association promoting certification and interoperability for ITS, Tolling and Connected Vehicles will offer full device C-V2X testing for the first time at the upcoming OmniAir European Plugfest in Málaga, Spain, September 30-October 4.
In anticipation of hosting our event in Europe, an initial set of 75 C-V2X test cases have been developed by OmniAir’s Technical Working Group. The Working Group has broad industry representation by leading device manufacturers, chipset providers, engineering firms, test labs, and test tool providers from Europe, Asia, and the Americas. This Plugfest is the only testing event in Europe that will offer to test against OmniAir specifications.
In addition to the new C-V2X test cases, OmniAir through its’ partnership with the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration is introducing a new series of RSU test cases. There are 28 new MAP application test cases based off of the SAE J2735 message set dictionary, 22 SPaT application test cases based off of the SAE J2735 message set dictionary, and 11 new SPaT application test cases based off of the new NTCIP 1202v03 Object Definitions for Actuated Signal Controller Interface standard. These new test cases will be tested on the bench and at DEKRA’s test track.
Bench testing will take place at the Caterpillar Demonstrations & Learning Centre and field testing at DEKRA’s test track during the week. The C-V2X test equipment will be separated from the DSRC test stations, providing additional privacy for C-V2X participants. For those that are not quite ready to have their device tested in a collaborative, interoperable, environment we are offering limited, private testing located off-site at DERKA’s test lab.
C-V2X devices can take advantage of traditional 3GPP Physical Layer/Radio Testing plus OmniAir’s 200 test cases for RSUs and 120 for OBUs. OmniAir Plugfest events are not just for certification but for device functionality and pilot readiness.
Security is an important focus this year with three major SCMS security certificate providers participating: INTEGRITY Security Services, Penta Security and BlackBerry Certicom. Each provider will have a field RSU with its unique certificates installed. Device participants will be able to experience true interoperability testing with the RSU’s broadcasting WSA, SPaT & MAP messages.
OmniAir has 16 companies providing over 20 V2X testing stations. No other V2X testing event can even come close to matching the level of expertise offered at the OmniAir European Plugfest!
