DRIVE C2X and COMeSafety2 present cooperative systems
DRIVE C2X @ 65th International Motor Show IAA
DRIVE C2X and the supportive action COMeSafety2 present Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (C-ITS) during the 65th International Motor Show IAA in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, from September 12 to 22.
DRIVE C2X and COMeSafety2 show a real-life traffic scenario with a Smart, a mobile traffic light and a printed intra-urban intersection on the back wall, simulating different use cases of cooperative systems. This year, the connected vehicle is one of the guiding themes addressed by the automotive industry.
Visit DRIVE C2X in hall 3.1/booth C31.
DRIVE C2X @ TSS, Gothenburg, June 13-14, 2013
Final event of test site campaign
For the third and last time DRIVE C2X made cooperative systems cooperate. More than 300 visitors from the expert community and the public joined the event. At the Test Site Sweden in Gothenburg on June 13-14, the visitors experienced cooperative driving in demonstration tours, discussed research during workshops in a conference, learned more about the first project results and related organisations in an exhibition and gained insight into the field of operational testing during a video session.

DRIVE C2X @ TSS
DRIVE C2X is pleased to announce the last major demo event of DRIVE C2X’s test site campaign "Making cooperative systems cooperate". Visitors will have the unique opportunity to drive themselves and gain hands-on experience of the DRIVE C2X functions in a running FOT. The event will take place on June 13-14, 2013 at the Test Site Sweden (TSS), in Gothenburg.
Registration is now closed.
Successful integration of HITACHI and NEC platforms achieved
DRIVE C2X and PRESERVE integration
The DRIVE C2X and →PRESERVE projects have reached a milestone in their cooperation: The DRIVE C2X platform for Car-2-X communication was integrated with the PRESERVE security solution. The successful testing in a laboratory environment has proven the interworking of the two systems.
In the first set of tests, HITACHI Europe communication stack specifically implemented for DRIVE C2X and SCORE@F was fully integrated with Vehicular Communication security system (VSS) developed by PRESERVE project. Secure V2X communication (VSS Kit 1) in a form of a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based Hardware Security Module (HSM) was integrated with GeoNetworking (GN) protocol stack developed by HITACHI Europe. As a result, the DRIVE C2X RIS reference system is now successfully integrated with the PRESERVE security module. After integration and validation tests, the successful collaboration between the research teams led to a joint demonstration at the 19th ITS World Congress 2012 in Vienna, October 22 – 26 and during the IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference 2012 in Seoul, Korea, November 14-16. The next milestone in their cooperation is to validate the setup during FOT phase of SCORE@F (March/April, 2013).
An integration and validation meeting between DRIVE C2X and PRESERVE was then organized by NEC Labs in Heidelberg on 15-16 January 2013. The researchers from →NEC Labs and →University Twente ran successful tests for secure communication over ITS-G5 radio using digital signatures and certificates. The tests were carried out with NEC’s embedded hardware platform and PRESERVE’s HSM. As a result, the DRIVE C2X VIS reference system is now successfully integrated with the PRESERVE security module.
PRESERVE is a research project funded by the European Union under the →7th Framework Programme. The mission of PRESERVE is to design, implement, and test a secure and scalable V2X Security Subsystem for realistic deployment scenarios, complementary to the mission of DRIVE C2X. DRIVE C2X and PRESERVE have cooperated since both projects started in January 2011 and exchanged information to harmonize architectures and interfaces. To the same end the partners in the projects also collaborated on standardization efforts in →ETSI and →C2C-CC.
DRIVE C2X premieres two cooperative driving films
DRIVE C2X is pleased to announce the creation of two short films depicting the benefits of cooperative driving in an entertaining fashion. The first, 90-second film uses real actors and a humorous, fictional "road movie" storyline to present how C2X makes driving safer, more comfortable, and environmentally friendlier – Europe-wide.
The second movie, a 3-minute animation, focuses on the DRIVE C2X functions: it shows how traffic participants communicate via C2X to avoid accidents, warn each others of obstacles and bad weather, and approach traffic lights at the right speed for a green light. By communicating and being informed about potentially hazardous traffic situations, both the traffic participants and the environment benefit. Thanks to the international focus of the project, DRIVE C2X becomes the European reference for cooperative driving.
