ITS Cooperative Mobility Services Event 5

In the continuous effort to support rapid ITS deployment and to validate the ETSI ITS Release 1 standards, a fifth Plugtest will be organized in November 2016 focusing on Co-operative Mobile Systems standards from ETSI, CEN and ISO and to test the interoperability of ITS equipment from all key vendors.

ETSI is looking to recruit technical expertise and test session chairs to support and conduct this event. The call is available here: Call.its cms 2013

Stakeholders in the Plugtest scope (see Overview) are invited to submit Use Cases to plugtests@etsi.org.

Overview

ETSI, in partnership with ERTICO, are pleased to invite you to the fifth C-ITS Plugtests™ event which will take place from 9th to 18th November 2016. This event will be hosted by CNIT and the Livorno Port Authority at the Port of Livorno, Tuscany, Italy.

Similar to past events interoperability and conformance tests will be conducted:

  • With the support of infrastructure vendors, the lab testbed will be extended with Traffic Management components in order to enable end-to-end interoperability scenarios, while testing ITS protocols at the air interface between OBUs and RSUs.
  • The ETSI Conformance Validation Framework will be used to pre-qualify implementations and it will be available during the Plugtest.

With the support of Regione Toscana, AVR, Autostrade Tech, Telecom Italia and ITRI access to the Port and the Florence-Livorno highway will be provided. ITS infrastructure vendors will have the opportunity to deploy RSUs in the Port as well as along the highway and to connect RSUs to the AVR highway control center.

The scope of the event includes base standards such as Security (ETSI TS 103 097), CA Service (ETSI EN 302 637-2), DEN service (ETSI EN 302 637-3), GeoNetworking (ETSI EN 302 636-4-1), ISS/RTP/IVI/ISC infrastructure services (ETSI TS 103 301), Decentralized Congestion Control (TS 103 175), ITS-G5 Channel Models and Performance (TS 103 257), ETSI ES 200 674 and ITS-G5 Mitigation (TS 102 792) as well as on pre-standardization topics such as Platooning or Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control.

Stakeholders in the above-mentioned scope are invited to submit Use Cases to plugtests@etsi.org. In the preparation of the Plugtest the Use Cases will be discussed and Interoperability Tests will be developed.

Furthermore, the Livorno Port hosts an IoT/M2M testbed which allows to demonstrate ITS-IoT/M2M Transportation Use Cases centered on wireless distributed monitoring. Vendors will be invited to showcase ITS-IoT/M2M based applications in the domain of Smart Mobility. 

This activity is supported by the European Commission.EC

Yogoko succeeded to make a secured journey on the test drive! On its way it loaded EA and AT certificates from its IPv6 enabled RSU and sent secured CAMs and verified secured DENMs received from other vehicles. The ISE PKI server received Yogoko’s certificate requests and issued the certificates, see screenshot below.

PKI logs - USE CASE 10 - YOGOKO

Today the main scope was to test the Mitigation of Tolling and ITS. RSUs broadcasted CAMs with ProtectedZone information. The test vehicles received the CAMs and reduced the Tx power when approaching the protectedZone. ActiveTollingzone

ITS Plugtest Headquarter preparation

The headquarter was prepared yesterday, each vendor has a dedicated area with power and network connectivity, thus allowing them to remotely control the RSUs installed in the test track.

room preparation

The complete network setup connects remote labs, the headquarter, the harbour test track and the highway test track.
