The first ETSI C-V2X Plugtests, performed in partnership with 5GAA, came to a close with a success rate of 95% of the executed tests, showing an extremely positive level of multi-vendor interoperability. 320 test scenarios were executed in lab and field environments for interoperability with 70 people present onsite for testing.

This event enabled vendors to run test sessions to assess the level of interoperability of their implementation and validate the understanding of the ETSI TC ITS and 3GPP standards.

This week-long face to face PlugtestsĀ at Dekra, Malaga, provided an opportunity to test C-V2X devices. Field interoperability testing included road hazard signalling, road works warning, longitudinal collision risk warning and intersection collision risk warning.

The ETSI 5GAA joint workshop which was organized in parallel, addressed C-V2X interoperability and deployment and was attended by 65 people. Leading speakers from the European Commission, the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Global Certification Forum presented the latest updates on ITS deployments and certifications.

Participants included:

  • Eight On-Board Units: Bosch, Commsignia, Ficosa, Huawei, LGE, Neusoft, Qualcomm, Savari
  • Four PKI Providers: Crypta Labs, Gemalto (Thales), Microsec, Penta Security
  • Five Test Equipment Vendors: Anritsu, Keysight, Rhode & Schwarz, Spirent, Software Radio Systems
