September saw the first Transport Protocol Experts Group (TPEG) Testfest in Munich, Germany, where sixteen organisations active in the provision of TPEG services around the world gathered to carry out three days of intensive testing.
Jointly organised by ERTICO and Traveller Information Services Association (TISA), the Testfest follows a series of interoperability test events already organised by ERTICO on various ITS services, such as cooperative mobility and eCall.
Tests focused mainly on the implementation of TPEG applications currently defined in the various TISA specifications which are soon to become worldwide standard; a good level of interoperability was displayed, with an average success rate of 87 per cent.
The event also provided TISA members with valuable feedback on the interpretation of the standards and how they could be refined in the future to ensure an even more consistent implementation of the TPEG technology worldwide.
Matthias Unbehaun, TISA Executive Director Designate commented, “this initiative was a success which should pave the way for future activities aiming at assessing and continuously improving the compliance between TPEG clients and TPEG services. Given the maturity level reached by the TPEG technology today, the timing was perfect for this first TPEG Testfest".
