OmniAir Michigan Plugfest will be the first Plugfest in North America exclusively-focused on testing and readiness of C-V2X-based Connected Vehicle technologies.

The event, hosted by Danlaw in Novi, MI, is scheduled for June 14-18. Field testing will take place at the University of Michigan’s Mcity facility in Ann Arbor.

Similar to our 2020 OmniAir Global Plugfest, OmniAir will facilitate both in-person testing, as well as remote testing and witnessing for both lab and field testing.

The OmniAir Michigan Plugfest will bring together leading automotive OEMs, suppliers, test labs, equipment vendors, engineering firms, and SCMS providers, for a week of intensive conformance, interoperability, security, and field testing in a confidential and cooperative environment. Testing will be offered for both C-V2X (LTE-V2X PC5) On-Board Units (OBUs) and Roadside Units (RSUs).

OmniAir Plugfests are designed to help device manufacturers to ensure their devices conform with published industry standards and are interoperable, in preparation for certification testing and deployment. Participants will have the opportunity to test and improve their devices with help from leading C-V2X experts in a cooperative and confidential environment. The week-long event will help focus engineering resources to bring test equipment and devices one step closer to being market-ready.

The event helps to identify issues and determine if the cause is with a specific test case, test equipment, device, or a combination of all. This one week of testing with experts in every field will help identify and find solutions that might take a company months of research to solve alone.

The OmniAir Michigan Plugfest will offer testing for conformance, interoperability, and security with bench testing. Indoor laboratory testing will occur at the Danlaw facility, our event host, June 14-16, and field testing will take place at Mcity on June 17 and 18.

Test cases will be drawn from OmniAir’s LTE-V2X Certification Program. This program, which will launch in April, will offer the world’s first comprehensive testing and certification program for LTE-V2X OBUs and RSUs.

Participants will take advantage of the following bench and field tests:

  • Radio testing for LTE-V2X (C-V2X PC5)
  • Upper Layer Conformance testing against OmniAir specifications for LTE-V2X (C-V2X PC5)
  • BSM Performance & Location Accuracy Testing for DSRC (upon advance request) and LTE-V2X (C-V2X PC5)
  • BSM Application Drive Comparison Testing for LTE-V2X (C-V2X PC5
  • SCMS Security Certificate Testing and Multi-source Certificate Interoperability Testing

In conjunction with the Plugfest, OmniAir will host an online technical workshop and parallel technical learning sessions for participants, focused on standards development, deployments, and testing around the world.

Space is limited. Those wishing to participate as a test station operator or a device manufacturer are encouraged to register now.
