OmniAir Consortium®, the leading industry association promoting interoperability and certification for ITS, tolling, and connected vehicles announced that it has released its initial set of test cases developed specifically for C-V2X technology.  These new test cases will form the basis for a new, independent, third-party testing and certification program for C-V2X technologies to be offered by OmniAir Consortium.

Over the past twelve months, OmniAir® members have developed the first comprehensive set of test cases for C-V2X (PC5) radios, based on industry standards.  These include new test cases for On-Board Units (OBU) and Roadside Units (RSUs).  Many test cases are based on existing test specifications for OmniAir’s existing certification program for DSRC-V2X radios.

OmniAir C-V2X Test Cases are Based on the Following Standards: 

  • 3GPP 36-521 & 36-523 Radio Transmissions & Receptions
  • SAE J3161/1:2020 OBU LTE-V2X Communications
  • IEEE 1609.2:2017, 2a & 2b:2019 Security Services
  • IEEE 1609.2.1(CAMP):2020 SCMS & Certificates
  • IEEE 1609.3:2020 Network Services
  • IEEE 1609.4:2016 Multi-Channel Operations
  • SAE J2735 Message Decoding
  • SAE J2945/1:2020 V2V Minimum Performance
  • SAE J2945/1 & /1A:2020 BSM Checklist Driving Test
  • SAE J2945/1A:2020 BSM Min. Performance & Location Accuracy Field Testing
  • SAE J2735 SPAT per 783-OA-TSS&TP-SPAT
  • SAE J2735 MAP per 782-OA-TSS&TP-MAP

“The development of over 300 new OmniAir test cases for C-V2X radios is a major milestone for the industry,” said Jason Conley, Executive Director for OmniAir Consortium. “This will help ensure that C-V2X radios will meet the same rigorous, independent testing and certification process as other connected vehicle communications technologies.”

OmniAir’s initial C-V2X test cases will be evaluated during the OmniAir Global Plugfest, scheduled to begin September 28.  OmniAir Plugfests are the premier testing event for connected vehicle technologies, bringing together leading device manufacturers, test laboratories, test equipment providers from around the world.  This year’s event will offer remote field, bench, and security testing at six locations across Europe, Asia, and North America over a three-week period.

The draft plugfest test plan will be made available in advance of this event exclusively to OmniAir members, as well as registered participants of the OmniAir Global Plugfest.  Testing will help to strengthen and validate our initial test cases in advance of the launch of OmniAir’s C-V2X Certification program later this year.

If you are interested in participating in the OmniAir Global Plugfest to demonstrate your C-V2X device capabilities and readiness, contact Ryan Hall, Sr. Director of Marketing & Business Development.
