During this summer, a full integration and installation procedure of the SAFESTRIP system, took place in Patras University Campus,  Greece, where CTI premises are hosted. This is the first time that both systems which constitute the SAFESTRIP road solution, the On Road Unit (ORU) and the Road Side Bridge (RSB), are installed in real road conditions and form an actual testbed. This testbed closes the second testing iteration with the successful integration of the individual parts that have been developed so far.

Several experiments were conducted concerning energy harvesting, encapsulation, strain gauges, sensing and communication validation, revealing hidden aspects towards optimization to the final setup.
