    Abstract

    In the future, vehicles will communicate and cooperate more and more with each other and the infrastructure, enabling them to work together to reduce traffic jams and harmful emissions and to increase road capacity and safety. These cooperative driving and smart mobility solutions allow for better and safer traffic management and cleaner and more fluent traffic for travelers. To achieve these objectives, much research and experiments are still needed. Especially sites allowing real-life tests are required. Not many good examples of these kinds of sites exist, although they are logical extensions of the traditional, controlled and closed research environments. This study identifies the main cornerstone factors for establishing and maintaining test sites for cooperative mobility by benchmarking two successful test sites. The results revealed that it is not about the technology but mostly about triple helix collaboration managed by a neutral party and supported by public authorities.
