Description of Paper:
In the last decade, various research and development activities in communication systems for car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure communication have reached a mature technological level. From such communication systems, in particular operating in the 5GHz frequency band with WLAN technology, a great benefit in safety and road traffic efficiency is expected. DRIVE C2X is a European project that plans, executes and evaluates field tests for cooperative systems using CAR-2-X communication. This paper summarizes the testing framework of the project. It covers test functions and scenarios, system specification and implementation, tools for test execution and control, as well as operational and technical guidelines. The framework will be used at various test sites across Europe. It enables test sites to execute field tests and assess the impact of the system on safety as well as socio-economic aspects.
