Autotalks, a provider of V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication solutions, participated in a week-long C-V2X testing event, the OmniAir Quebec Plugfest, which took place on May 6th-10th in Blainville, Canada. 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 the Plugfest. The latest positive news comes just several weeks after the company reported the successful completion of a field test in China with a major local technology giant.

OmniAir Consortium® develops testing and certification programs for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) devices. OmniAir Consortium’s members work together to promote the deployment of safe, secure, and interoperable, connected vehicle technologies. As an OmniAir 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.

Autotalks’ deployment-ready, 2nd generation V2X chipset is the world’s first available solution which supports both DSRC based on 802.11p/ITS-G5 standards and C-V2X based on 3GPP release 14 and 15 specifications with embedded V2X cybersecurity functionality. The chipset allows customers to easily toggle between DSRC and C-V2X communications. The chipset isolates V2X from the non-safety domains, thus providing domain separation & security, scalability, and potential cost-optimizations of Telematics Control Unit (TCU) deployments.
