On March 5-6, Omniair Executive Member Qualcomm hosted a small technical workshop for interested members from Bureau Veritas, SGS, SwRI and TUV SUD at Qualcomm’s San Diego, California headquarters in preparation of a larger C-V2X presence during May’s Quebec Plugfest.
This event was the first of upcoming workshops OmniAir will offer our members as we begin to engage stakeholders in the development of an OmniAir C-V2X certification program. During our last Board of Directors meeting in February, C-V2X certification was one of four high-priority initiatives identified by the board to actively pursue.
The two-day technical seminar discussed subjects ranging from radio functionality, advance features, V2X testing, test tools, time/location accuracy, and PC5 test cases to a deep dive into everything C-V2X. OmniAir provided a certification overview for Qualcomm’s C-V2X staff. SwRI provided an in-depth review of their field OBU evaluation tool becoming commercially available covering GNSS location accuracy and DSRC–BSM performance. This test tool will be operated at upcoming Quebec Plugfest for device conformance and test laboratory evaluations.
Members discussed the need to add a greater level of interoperability and field testing during the Quebec Plugfest and brought up concerns about co-existence during the event when both DSRC and C-V2X devices are operating in tandem.
