Cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) based on Vehicle2X (V2X) communication are currently under development in the automotive industry and regarded to be in mass-production in the near future. In order to develop and test cooperative ITS services, the Institute of Transportation Systems of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) operates a large-scale test site in the city of Braunschweig, Germany. This research infrastructure facilitates test activities, measurements as well as evaluation activities for C-ITS in a real-life environment.
