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.


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
