# Plexe

The Platooning Extension for Veins.

## Instant Plexe

As Instant Veins, Instant Plexe is a virtual machine that comes with all the required software pre-installed, so you can try Plexe without having to go through the whole download, build, and setup procedure.

You can download the Instant Plexe virtual machine as an Open Virtualization Format file (.ova) that can be imported into any virtualization software that support this format like, for example, Oracle VM VirtualBox or VMWare Workstation Player. This permits you to test Plexe on any operating system, even though Plexe is best suited to be run in Unix/Linux environments.
