Today, OmniAir is proud to announce our worldwide connected vehicle testing event – the OmniAir Global Plugfest!

For the first time, OmniAir will offer testing at locations across three continents, North America, Europe, and Asia!

This full-scale event will allow participants the opportunity to participate in virtual networking, tune into content from industry experts and thought leaders, and engage in extensive conformance and interoperability testing from the comfort of their home office.

This year’s event will feature testing hubs, strategically placed around the world, to provide access to vendors from the ease of their computers.

Testing will consist of a combination of on-site testing, conducted by OmniAir Authorized Test Laboratories (OATL) personnel, and virtual witnessing for C-V2X and DSRC devices at each location. Participating device manufactures will have the option of accompanying their device at each hub or send a device to each test hub and participate virtually.

What’s New This Year

V2X device makers will have the opportunity to have their units tested at each participating hub, by OmniAir technical staff and OmniAir Authorized Test Laboratories Bureau Veritas, DEKRA, SGS, and TTA. Test laboratories will be utilizing OmniAir Qualified Test Equipment, and OmniAir member test equipment from Anritsu, Danlaw, Keysight, Rohde & Schwarz, S.E.A., Spirent, SwRI, Vector and Wayties.
