Interoperability and eCall service harmonization are critical challenges to be taken into account for the successful deployment and operation of the eCall service.

The 5th eCall TESTFEST event enabled vendors to run interoperability test sessions using test descriptions provided in approved guidelines.

The week-long event was dedicated to interoperability testing, and was designed for:

  • eCall In-vehicle system vendors
  • PSAP systems vendors
  • eCall Test solution vendors

New In Vehicle System (IVS) and Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) vendors were invited to join the event.

The event brought more value with the debriefing sessions where experts could answer technical questions or solve interoperability issues.

Additionally, compliance and performance checking sessions were scheduled to complement the interoperability tests.

This activity was supported by the European Commission.
