Physical Object: Connected Vehicle Roadside Equipment

RSE Environmental Monitoring

Overview

'RSE Environmental Monitoring' collects environmental situation (probe) data from passing vehicles that are equipped with short range communications capability. The collected data includes current environmental conditions as measured by on-board sensors (e.g., ambient temperature and precipitation measures), current status of vehicle systems that can be used to infer environmental conditions (e.g., status of lights, wipers, ABS, and traction control systems), and emissions measures reported by the vehicle. The functional object collects the provided data, aggregates and filters the data based on provided configuration parameters, and sends the collected information back to a center for processing and distribution. This functional object may also process the collected data locally and issue short-term road weather advisories for the road segment using short range communications.

This functional object is included in the "Connected Vehicle Roadside Equipment" physical object.

This functional object is included in the following service packages:

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

Requirements

# Requirement
01 The field element shall communicate with passing vehicles to collect environmental monitoring data, including ambient air quality, emissions, temperature, precipitation, and other road weather information.
02 The field element shall aggregate and forward collected environmental probe information to the center.
03 The field element shall collect environmental monitoring data from sensors, including ambient air quality, emissions, temperature, precipitation, and other road weather information.
04 The field element shall provide application status to the center for monitoring.
05 The field element shall aggregate and filter the collected environmental data based on configuration parameters received from the controlling center.
06 The field element shall process the collected data locally and issue short-term road weather advisories for the road segment using short range communication.
07 The field element shall provide environmental data to other field elements.

Standards

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