DRIVE C2X organized a session with the title “Field operational tests as enabler for cooperative mobility in Europe?”. It was held at the 18th ITS World Congress in Orlando on the October 19th, 2011.

With approximately 50 participants, the Special Session was a great success. The speakers discussed various approaches and aspects deploying C2X technologies in Europe. The representatives of OEMs, standardization organizations, road operators and supporting initiatives focussed on business aspects like the calculation of a European-wide deployment of C2X.
