Physical Object: ITS Roadway Equipment
Roadway Traffic Gap Assist
'Roadway Traffic Gap Assist' measures the headway to the next approaching vehicle. Based on programmed thresholds, unsafe gaps are identified and reported via roadside signs. Traffic gaps and associated advisories and warnings are also provided to the RSE for communication to connected vehicles.
This functional object is included in the "ITS Roadway Equipment" physical object.
This functional object is included in the following service packages:
This functional object is mapped to the following Functional View PSpecs:
|01||The field equipment shall measure the headway of approaching vehicles and identify gaps that would be unsafe for a vehicle to cross the intersection.|
|02||The field equipment shall provide advisories or warnings signage to vehicles waiting to cross the intersection when the gap with approaching vehicles is determined to be unsafe for the crossing vehicle to proceed.|
|03||The field equipment shall provide traffic gap information as well as advisories or warnings to connected vehicles waiting to cross the intersection.|
Currently, there are no standards associated with the functional object itself though the interfaces may have standards associated with them.
