What is V2X and OmniAir Certification?

Developed to support the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program, OmniAir Certification verifies that wireless enabled transportation products meet connectivity and interoperability testing requirements developed from IEEE and SAE communication standards for the V2X technology. A vital step in widespread V2X implementation, certification allows device manufacturers to obtain long-lasting security and trust credentials. Securing certified or trusted communications devices is the key to seeing national deployment of these life-saving devices and will help ensure that users can trust that the components will work within the system.

OmniAir Consortium (http://www.omniair.org) is the leading industry association promoting interoperability and certification in ITS, tolling, IoT technologies and connected vehicles. OmniAir and its members have worked collaboratively with transportation stakeholders to develop requirements and specifications for both tolling and Connected Vehicles. Since 2012, OmniAir has certified RFID tags and readers used in electronic toll collection systems.

OmniAir’s certification program provides third party accredited laboratory testing and validation of DSRC-based V2X devices for device manufacturers, suppliers and automotive OEMs entering the V2X market. It validates the products that conform to industry protocol standards and specifications for device communications.
