Monday, 23 April 2018 was the first day of the InterCor PKI Security TESTFEST taking place from 23 to 26 April 2018 in Reims, France. The morning welcome session was well attended with about 80 participants to the desk top testing. After solving some expected technical obstacles, all the present teams received DENM (Decentralized Environmental Notification Message)  from French and Dutch Road Side Units (RSU).

The afternoon was reserved for open road testing with scenario #1. During the first test run 19 car platoons drove around the test trajectory with promising results. All participants’ On Board Units (OBU) were successful and received and understood the RSU generated events. Part of the vehicle generated DENM remained invisible for some participants due to the distance between their car and the message emitting vehicles. In the second test run participants report same or better results.
