Test site calendar
Media invited to winter tests
VTT, Technical Research Centre of Finland arranges a press conference at the winter test site of DRIVE C2X on December 12 . In the press conference, the project consortium will be represented by Mr. Matthias Schulze, Senior Manager, Driver Support, Daimler together with research scientists. In the end of the press conference the representatives of the media will have a possibility to experience in practice how cars communicate slipperiness of the road to the driver.
DRIVE C2X partners have been carrying out DRIVE C2X winter tests in Tampere, Finland in which they were testing the Weather Warning (WW) function providing drivers with a warning on slippery road conditions ahead. Three DRIVE C2X vehicles are in use for these tests: Opel Insignia, Volvo V70 and Mercedes 500.
With the end of these tests, the project celebrates the successful conclusion of all DRIVE C2X testing activities during an extensive testing period carried out in Germany, Italy, France Spain, Sweden, the Netherlands and Finland.
Winter tests in Finland
DRIVE C2X partners have been carrying out winter tests in Tampere, Finland in December. Partners were testing the Weather Warning (WW) function providing drivers with a warning on slippery road conditions ahead. DRIVE C2X used the opportunity to test the systems under harsh winter weather conditions.
Three DRIVE C2X vehicles are in use for these tests: Opel Insignia, Volvo V70 and Mercedes S 500.
SCORE@F Final Event
The European project SCORE@F invites to its final event at Inria Rocquencourt near Paris, France on September 24.
In SCORE@F 21 partners have been working in coordination with the pan-European project DRIVE C2X aiming at preparing for the deployment of Cooperative ITS, as driven by the European Commission ITS Directive and the ITS Standardisation Mandate M/453 adopted in 2010.
DRIVE C2X will hold a session moderated by the DRIVE C2X Coordinator Matthias Schulze. The session will take place from 14:00-15:00 focusing on:
- FOT preparation - Francois Fischer, ERTICO
- Data management - Thomas Benz, PTV Group
- Outlook: Data evaluation - Pirkko Rämä, VTT

simTD final event after successful FOT
On June 20th, 2013, the research project simTD presented its system of car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure communication. At the fairgrounds in Frankfurt/Main more than 350 participants from industry, academia and politics were welcomed to the final event of the project.
More than 20 representatives from TV, print and online media attended the press conference in which the project results were presented to the public. At the subsequent expert conference simTD experts showed technology, field test and results of the project as well as a preview of the forthcoming implementation of the car-to-x technology. Accompanying, the participants had the opportunity to learn more about additional results of simTD and discuss the future of mobility with experts at an exhibition.
The highlight of the event were the driving demonstrations in real traffic. For this purpose, a total of 17 cars and two motorcycles of the project partners were available. More than 250 visitors took advantage of this opportunity and participated in a demonstration run experiencing the simTD system in real operation.
More information and current information material can be found on www.simtd.de.
DRIVE C2X @ TSS
For the third and last event of the “Making Cooperative Systems Cooperate” tour DRIVE C2X joins up with the Test Site Sweden in Gothenburg to demonstrate C2X technology to the expert community and - for the first time - to the general public.
Forum des Acteurs, Versailles, France
The second Forum des Acteurs des ITS Coopératifs at the Satory test site in Versailles, France, on 25 September 2012 brings together the partners of the French test site consortium SCORE@F for information exchange, presentations and a demonstration of the SCORE@F system.

DRIVE C2X @ DITCM
In the second event of the “Making Cooperative Systems Cooperate” tour DRIVE C2X joins up with the Helmond test site to show the full DRIVE C2X reference system to the public for the first time.
Workshop on Cooperative Mobility services, Versailles, France
From 11 to 15 June 2012, cooperative mobility solution vendors will meet at IFSTTAR to test the interoperability of their communication components. This will be an opportunity for experts involved in the standardization, the development and the deployment of cooperative systems to present the principles of these technologies as well as their views about benefits and challenges of the cooperative systems. This workshop on benefits and deployment challenges will take place on 14 June 2012 at IFSTTAR, Versailles-Satory, involving members of DRIVE C2X and the C2X community.
The availability of appropriate V2V and V2I communication systems will allow proposing a wide range of application to the drivers:
• Safety application to warn drivers about potential dangers
• Application to broadcast information like parking availability
• Business applications like fleet management
Cooperative Mobility Services Plugtest, Versailles, France
The success of the previous Cooperative Mobility Services Plugtests™ event on ETSI ITS Transport and Networking communication layer protocols has led ERTICO and ETS to pursue their efforts in providing a further series of interoperability events for Cooperative Systems.
The next event is intended to focus on Facility protocols.
The aim of the interoperability program is to validate the ITS communication layer base standards and thus support the standardization process. Vendor to vendor test sessions will assess the level of interoperability and the correct understanding of the base standard requirements. By performing Plugtests, suppliers are preparing Cooperative ITS equipment for deployment according to the Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area.
