OmniAir Consortium®, the global leader in vehicle-to-everything (V2X) certification, announces our newest member – Qualcomm. OmniAir has seen a spike in high-profile corporations join OmniAir since the official launch of our V2X certification program in October. From Tier 1 automotive giant DENSO, international testing house TÜV SÜD, and now one of the world’s largest and most recognized chipset makers and V2X proponents – Qualcomm.
“Having corporations like Qualcomm join your association at an executive level and serve on the board sends a strong market signal that OmniAir is the premier, independent, third-party certification body for V2X technology,” said Jason Conley, Executive Director at OmniAir.
“As a key provider of wireless solutions for automotive, Qualcomm Technologies is honored to participate in OmniAir’s leading efforts for certification of V2X systems,” said Jim Lansford, Director, Technical Standards at Qualcomm. “Qualcomm Technologies has been at the forefront of inventing and commercializing V2X communication, and we are honored to work with key automotive and technology stakeholders towards 5G C-V2X.
