Ensuring compliance to the base standards with conformance testing does not necessarily guarantee the interoperability of implementations from different vendors. Therefore ERTICO and ETSI have decided to join their efforts to organize an interoperability program which complements the ITS conformance testing program.
This event is due to be held at TNO's test facilities in Helmond, The Netherlands.
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.
