Danlaw to Host the USDOT Connected Vehicle PlugFest

Danlaw, Inc., a global provider of automotive electronics, engineering tools and embedded engineering services, will welcome companies to the USDOT Connected Vehicle PlugFest at their headquarters in Novi, Michigan, from November 15 through 18, 2016. The four-day event will include one day of industry presentations followed by three days of interoperability testing. 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 V2V and V2I safety applications.

“Development of the standards and products that meet the standards have now reached a point where companies need to come together for testing,” said Andrew Donaldson, Program Manager - Connected Vehicle, at Danlaw. “We are excited that Danlaw can provide a venue where our industry peers from around the world can come together.”

Danlaw is working with the USDOT in conjunction with the OmniAir Consortium and 7Layers Inc. to develop a certification environment for testing and validation of connected vehicles using the Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) standard, ISO 802.11p. These three companies will be on-site to demonstrate certification testing products as well as connect with companies ready to verify their implementations.

Danlaw will be showing its MxDSRC Test Tool that not only assesses the DSRC communications, but simulates systems in the vehicle that interact with the DSRC radio module to create tests closely replicating real-world scenarios. Opportunities will also be available for vendor-to-vendor interoperability testing. Interested parties can register here.
