5GAA to organise a first-ever C-V2X Plugtests™ event with ETSI, 02-06 December, Malaga (Spain)
The 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) is proud to be a partner of the European Telecommunications Standard Institute (ETSI) in the first C-V2X-only Plugtests™ event, to take place in Malaga, Spain, from 02 to 06 December 2019. This interoperability test is being held with the support of the European Commission and hosted by DEKRA, member of 5GAA, in its Connected Vehicle Test Development Centre, where trials will be carried out both in lab and field environments.
Plugtests™ represent an important tool to allow vendors to evaluate the interoperability of their systems and provide precious feedback to independent experts in order to improve the standard-making process. Moreover, this event is a further milestone in the cooperation between 5GAA and DEKRA, a leader in automotive safety testing, that already had the chance to collaborate during a previous plugfest in April 2019.
On 04 December, an ETSI-5GAA Plugtests™ conference is scheduled, focused on nowadays achievements and challenges in the connected automotive sector, to offer the audience a complete update on the opportunities and implementation models of C-V2X technology.
