We are beginning to return to the old experiences of parallel international events in the pre-epidemic period. This week, however, we are experiencing a new dimension. At the OmniAir Plugfest in Columbus, Ohio, we test the American version of our message authentication service for V2X communications.
One lesson is worth mentioning. We have become quite accustomed to online events during almost two years of the epidemic, and professional online friendships have also developed. Nevertheless, best practices that are not part of a technical standard could not be identified. One can only discover the informal professional consensus during face to face, joint work. Physical meetings are crucial.
And yes, there are times when you need to be present on two continents simultaneously. That is how it is this week. Although the annual European CAR 2 CAR Forum takes place online, the 6-hour time zone difference from the OmniAir Ohio Plugfest venue is challenging. Jet leg helps a bit during the first few days.
It used to be said that every "tech" giant (e.g. Amazon, Apple) necessarily started from a garage to success. Microsec and two dozen V2X developer companies with significant history came together at the Centre for Automotive Research of The Ohio State University. The pleasant rumble of industrial air exchangers, high-performance hoists, and electric vehicle components provide the factual background for experiments carried out by V2X equipment manufacturers, V2X security providers, and V2X test environments. We share the bench with Qualcomm, Continental, General Motors and Siemens guys.
