1st ITS CMS Plugtests

This event aimed to test the interoperability of  ITS protocols CAM, DENM, BTP, GeoNetworking and ITS-G5. A radio bench setup was provided to enable testing multi hop scenarios and to provide GPS feed via a position server for all test scenarios. This event was intended to help the acceleration of the ITS standardization as well as recommendations for ongoing and future projects to lead the deployment of cooperative ITS systems. It was hosted by TNO, Helmond, The Netherlands.

This event was attended by fourteen companies from eight countries worldwide and over the course of the testing week more than 750 interoperability tests were carried out.
As the first event of its kind, this was very well attended and the collaboration between the participating companies was very clear.

During the interoperability event, a video was produced by ETSI, which was linked to the ETSI website home page and which is permanently available for download from the ETSI Vimeo channel : http://vimeo.com/channels/etsi/35757545

As well as the interoperability event, a workshop was also organized with the aim of presenting the benefits and results of the first Plugtests sessions. The presentations and the discussions were intended to help participants to understand the critical role of interoperability events in enabling a seamless deployment of cooperative ITS systems.
The workshop was attended by more than 70 participants and was held on Thursday 27 October 2011, in parallel to the Plugtests testing event.
