DRIVE C2X relies on the prototypes of PRE-DRIVE C2X, which has proved system interoperability with demonstration vehicles and radio modules from different partners. Test vehicles equipped with the PRE-DRIVE C2X hardware platform have been evaluated under real life conditions, assessing their suitability to field operational testing.
A technology enhancement phase ensures that the DRIVE C2X FOT uses state-of-the-art technology for cooperative systems, provides all required functionality and is compliant with current communication standards. DRIVE C2X will also make the needed adaptations to the test sites specific requirements, especially taking legacy components into account.
Additionally, interoperability checks will be performed, in order to verify the correctness of the DRIVE C2X system on a technical level and to ensure interoperability of the system with components from different project partners and test sites.
