The OmniAir Ohio Plugfest, in partnership with DriveOhio, The Ohio State University Center for Automotive Research, and The Beta District is coming up fast!

It is just two weeks until OmniAir Consortium® kicks off the premier testing event for connected vehicle technologies in Columbus, Ohio the week of November 8-12.

This event is designed as a readiness event for connected vehicle and infrastructure radios and modules.

OmniAir Plugfests offer a week of comprehensive lab, field, and security testing for On Board Units (OBU), Roadside Units (RSU), and modules. This OmniAir Plugfest will focus on C-V2X (LTE-V2X PC5) devices preparing for OmniAir Certification.

Building off of our success at the recent OmniAir Michigan Plugfest, we will offer bench simulation and field testing for nine different V2X applications, representing important safety use cases.

Laboratory bench testing will take place over 5 days at The Ohio State University, Center for Automotive Research. Field testing, in a live traffic environment, is made possible through our partnerships with the Beta District and DriveOhio.

Field testing will begin on Wednesday, November 10, and continue through Friday, November 12 along the 33 Smart Mobility Corridor in Marysville and Dublin.

We have an incredible amount of test stations offered by the following OmniAir® members: Anritsu, AUTOCRYPT, INTEGRITY Security Services, Keysight Technologies, Microsec, Qualcomm, Rohde & Schwarz, S.E.A. Datentechnik GmbH, Spirent, Wayties, WSP, NI, and Nordsys.

The following companies are already registered and will take advantage of the opportunity to bring multiple devices for testing: Applied Information, Autotalks, Cohda Wireless, Commsignia, Continental, Danlaw, HARMAN, Kapsch, Siemens, and Qualcomm.

These companies have registered several C-V2X On-Board Units (OBU) and Roadside Units (RSU) that are ready for security, conformance, and interoperability testing.

“OmniAir is excited to bring the world’s premier testing event for connected vehicle devices and applications to the Buckeye State,” said Jason Conley, Executive Director of OmniAir. “Strong participation by leading device manufacturers, test equipment providers, labs, and engineering firms is an indication of the growing market for these life-saving connected vehicle technologies.”

As space is limited we are only able to accommodate a few more C-V2X device makers. Register now to ensure your OBU or RSU is ready for certification and deployment!

Registration ends at the close of business, Thursday, October 28.
