Plugfests provide a venue for vendor-to-vendor connected vehicle device testing as needed to develop certification services for multi-vendor connected vehicle networks.

At this event, three certification service providers (Danlaw, OmniAir, and 7Layers) will be on site to demonstrate certification testing products developed through the USDOT Certification Testing Program. Testing will focus on verifying conformance to current baseline standards (i.e., SAE J2945/1, IEEE 802.11, IEEE 1609.2, IEEE 1609.3, and IEEE 1609.4.) developed for vehicle-to-vehicle (safety) and vehicle-to-infrastructure applications.

Two separate sessions are planned.

Session-1 (November 15, 2016): Presentations covering general interest topics will include participants from industry, USDOT management, and the Certification Operating Council. This session will be open to anyone who is interested in attending and will be broadcast on the web.

Session-2 (November 16-18, 2016): Breakout sessions will focus on certification testing activities for organizations that are developing products, software, and systems for the Connected Vehicle Pilot sites. Opportunities for interoperability testing will be provided. This session will be limited to organizations that have devices or systems that they would like to verify against the test procedures offered. Private, indoor areas can be reserved to conduct bench testing and vehicle testing if needed; however, the USDOT will not be providing vehicles.
