Featured Speakers 

OmniAir’s Connected Vehicle Technical Workshop is held in conjunction with the OmniAir Ohio Plugfest testing event, in partnership with DriveOhio, The Ohio State University Center for Automotive Research, and The Beta District. OmniAir Plugfests are the premier testing events for connected vehicles, consisting of extensive week-long conformance and interoperability testing both in the laboratory and field. 

The Ohio Plugfest is the first North American event to conduct field testing in an open and live traffic environment for V2X connected vehicle technologies.

Who should attend?

The connected vehicle ecosystem comprises device manufacturers, tier-one suppliers, OEMs, deploying agencies, chipset manufacturers, test laboratories, test equipment providers, and others interested in contributing to developing a robust certification program for V2X communications. Government officials interested in deploying V2I technology are highly encouraged to attend to learn firsthand about the value that OmniAir Certification adds to their projects and deployments.
