Physical Object: Vehicle OBE

Vehicle Environmental Monitoring

Overview

'Vehicle Environmental Monitoring' collects data from on-board sensors and systems related to environmental conditions and sends the collected data to the infrastructure as the vehicle travels. The collected data is a byproduct of vehicle safety and convenience systems and includes ambient air temperature and precipitation measures and status of the wipers, lights, ABS, and traction control systems.

This functional object is included in the "Vehicle OBE" physical object.

This functional object is mapped to the following Functional View PSpecs:

Requirements

# Requirement
01 The vehicle shall collect and process environmental sensor data, including air temperature and rain sensors.
02 The vehicle shall monitor the status of vehicle convenience and safety systems (wiper status, headlight status, traction control system status) that can be used to measure environmental conditions and record snapshots of significant events in these systems.
03 The vehicle shall transmit environmental probe data to the center along with location and timestamp information.
04 The vehicle shall transmit environmental probe data to field equipment located along the roadway using short range communications.

Standards

Currently, there are no standards associated with the functional object itself though the interfaces may have standards associated with them.
