Helmond, The Netherlands
The Helmond test site is named DITCM, which stands for “Dutch Integrated Testsite for Cooperative Mobility”. DITCM is a testsite which consists of several intersections (including traffic lights) and a highway with full 802.11p and camera coverage. Within the project DITCM acts as the so-called System Test Site (STS) where the full DRIVE C2X reference system is installed. This allows the partners to test and validate the different DRIVE C2X applications on a single testsite before these are deployed on the other six testsites where the Field Operational Tests take place. Having a single STS where all OEMs can perform their tests also allows to perform combined tests in order to guarantee interoperability.
