Cooperative Mobility

Test facilities for cooperative mobility

Verification of V2X components
Validation of connected vehicle applications
Evaluation of ITS system effectiveness

Mobility Center

Cooperative systems are being developed for large scale deployment in the near future. Validation of the performance of cooperative systems, and evaluation of the impact of cooperative applications is crucial before large scale deployment can proceed. The TASS International offer facilitates testing, evaluation, and validation of cooperative systems from desktop simulation to indoor laboratory testing as well as outdoor testing on public roads.

Testing cooperative systems is even harder than testing traditional driver support systems because of networked interactions with other road users and road side equipment. TASS International Mobility Center provides services and facilities for testing in the fields of cooperative mobility, connected vehicle systems, and automated driving. Our test facilities range from desktop simulation software, indoor laboratory testing to the A270/N270 public highway for large-scale outdoor testing. Our test facilities have been used in wide range of Dutch projects and European projects such as the SPITS, Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge (GCDC) and Drive C2X.

DITCM test site

Our Facilities

The DITCM test site is a purpose-built facility for the development, testing and  validation of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and cooperative driving technologies. The DITCM test site is located on the A270 and N270 roads in and between the cities of Helmond and Eindhoven. It consists of both a motorway and urban environments. The DITCM test site is 8 km long, with 6 km of motorway. Roadside equipment is responsible for vehicle detection and V2X communication. All other equipment is placed indoor and includes sensor fusion facilities, application platforms and a traffic management center. The test site is connected to neighboring urban sections and other information sources via a high speed internet connection.
