Working and Sub-Working Groups


Parthiv Parikh, Connectivity & Products Global Business Manager - SGS

The Certification Working Group (CWG) develops OmniAir Consortium® policy manuals and documents detailing the purpose, scope, process, and instructions associated with the operation of certification services and programs. When OmniAir establishes a new certification program, the CWG initiates and authors the program manuals and documents based on internationally recognized certification body and quality standards.


Brian Romansky, Connected Vehicle Security and Product Innovation - Integrity Security Services

The Cybersecurity Working Group (CWG) develops security test specifications and certification criteria for V2X devices such as vehicle onboard units (OBUs) and roadside units (RSUs). The Working Group’s certifications will enable OEMs and suppliers to develop and deploy secure devices used in critical applications. The goal of our specifications will be to define the necessary security criteria for the full lifecycle of V2X deployment.

V2X Technical

Frank Perry, Vice President Sr. Technical Principal Connected and Automated Vehicles - WSP

The working group discusses various technical topics supporting current scope of OmniAir®V2X certification, change requests for technical scope, OmniAir Plugfests and future certification scope.

Cybersecurity SWG 1609.2.1

Woody Kim, Technical Director - Saesol Tech

The 1609.2.1 standard specifies certificate management protocols to support the provisioning and management of digital certificates to authorize application activities. This group will develop specific test cases that will allow for certification testing of the latest standards for security. 1609.2.1 is based on a CAMP (Crash Avoidance Metrics Partnership) developed protocol. The CAMP protocol will be retired as the group focuses on the move toward MBD (Misbehavior Detection), CRL (Certificate Revocation List) and CTL (Certificate Trust List) test cases.

V2X Technical SWG Plugfest Planning

Aaron Moore, Connected Vehicle Operations Manager - Drive Ohio

The Technical Planning Committee will identify a basic set of test cases that must be passed before performing more advanced testing. They will identify advanced test cases, such as applications/use cases and location accuracy, and provide mandatory requirements for devices under test (DUT) and test equipment. They also develop reporting methodologies and testing matrixes and provide a testing schedule.

V2X Technical SWB RSU

Nick Hegemier, Managing Director of Infrastructure - DriveOhio

Develop new certification programs and identify new standards to develop test cases for Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) based roadside units (RSU).

V2X Technical SWG Applications

Tom Timcho, Project Director of Emerging Technology - HNTB

The V2X Application Testing working group is designed to advance certification testing for applicable V2X applications and use cases by identifying and developing bench and field certification test cases for conformance and interoperability.


V2X/RUC Tolling Initiative

Suzanne Murtha, Connected & Automated Technologies Lead - AECOM

Focused on the development of strategies, requirements, recommendations, and test specifications that will lead to nationwide interoperability among toll agencies. The Tolling and Emerging Payment Technologies working group (TEPTWG) will provide input and guidance on the OmniAir tolling certification program, as well as evaluate and make recommendations on best tolling practices and new technologies.
