Provider of V2X communication solutions Autotalks participated in the OmniAir Quebec Plugfest, a week-long C-V2X test event, which took place on May 6-10 in Blainville, Canada.
The trials consisted of interoperability and bench tests. Autotalks performed a successful chipset level interoperability test with another chipset vendor, and successfully interoperated with all dedicated C-V2X test equipment manufacturers that were present at Plugfest.
This positive news comes just several weeks after the company reported its successful completion of a field test in China with a major local technology giant.
“OmniAir Plugfest testing events are designed to drive V2X technology forward, both for DSRC and C-V2X, in a cooperative environment,” said Jason Conley, executive director for OmniAir. “We had two major C-V2X chipset providers successfully test for interoperability, and we encourage other C-V2X device makers to participate in our fall 2019 edition.”
The OmniAir Consortium develops testing and certification programs for V2V, V2I and V2X devices. As a consortium member, Autotalks works closely with OmniAir and other stakeholders on the C-V2X certification effort.
In addition, after passing all relevant bench tests of leading test equipment providers, Autotalks continues to work closely with this sector in order to further define and develop C-V2X test suites.
Amos Freund, Autotalks vice president for R&D (pictured), said, “Achieving this significant milestone shows the maturity of our C-V2X technology toward commercial deployments. Our close collaborations with the ecosystem combined with our deep V2X expertise and know-how is shortening our development time on our automotive qualified chipset, which is already leveraged by many Tier 1 automotive companies.”
