USDOT Connected Vehicle Plugfest

SAVE THE DATE: May 8-12 2017 – San Antonio, Tx, USA

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) will hold its next Connected Vehicle PlugFest in San Antonio, Tx on May 8-12, 2017.  These events provide a venue for vendor-to-vendor connected vehicle device testing as needed to develop certification services for multi-vendor connected vehicle networks.

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 for V2I communications (i.e., IEEE 802.11, IEEE 1609.2, IEEE 1609.3, IEEE 1609.4, RSU 4.1). Provisions will be available to support continued testing of V2V communications as time permits.

An introduction and orientation session will be held on Monday afternoon, with testing available Tuesday-Friday.

May 8, 2017 (afternoon): Orientation and introduction session to facilities, schedule, and logistics for the week.

May 9-12, 2017: Break-out sessions will focus on certification testing activities for organizations that are developing products, software, and systems for the CV-Pilot sites, and opportunities for interoperability testing will be provided. An outdoor test track will be available for testing both RSUs and OBUs. Private indoor areas can be reserved to conduct bench testing and vehicle testing if needed, however, USDOT will not be providing vehicles.
