OmniAir Consortium®, the leading industry association promoting interoperability and certification for Connected Vehicles is launching a new initiative, focused on developing certification tests for V2X applications.

To support this effort, Omniair has formed a new Sub-Group to the existing Technical Working Group.  The Application Testing Sub-Group will initially focus on identifying and developing conformance bench and field testing for critical baseline applications from the V2X standards requiring certification.  Applications like Vehicle Pre-emption, Forward Crash Warning or Left Turn Assist under consideration for testing using BSM, SPaT, MAP, RSM (TIM) message types.  Bench Application Testing and its certification is possible with graphics and simulation capabilities of emerging 5G radio test equipment.

“With the increasing number vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P) applications, there is a growing need for testing and certification,” said Jason Conley Executive Director, OmniAir Consortium.  “OmniAir’s new V2X Application Testing Initiative aimed at addressing this critical need.

Hassen Alwalie, ITS Project Manager – Connected Vehicles for Danlaw, will serve as the Chair of the new Sub-Group.

OmniAir is currently recruiting volunteers with the requisite expertise and experience to contribute to this effort.  Specifically, we are seeking V2X engineers, software experts, and representatives from automotive OEMs, device manufacturers, municipalities, test labs, and test equipment vendors.

The V2X Application Testing Sub-Group will hold a face-to-face, kick-off on Thursday, April 30 during the Lone Star Plugfest in Austin, Texas.

With nearly 200 test cases already a part of OmniAir’s certification program, we are excited to see where the application conformance testing from the V2X Applications subcommittee will take us.

If you or your colleagues are interested in joining an OmniAir Working Group, we have an easy sign-up form on our website, or contact Kate Oldham, Sr. Director of Meetings & Membership.  If you are not yet an OmniAir member, it is easy to join.
