1.1.7: Collect Vehicle Environmental Data

This process shall collect environmental data from passing vehicles that are equipped with environmental sensors and a short range communications device. This communications with equipment onboard the vehicle provides vehicle sensor data such as measured air temperature, exterior light status, wiper status, sun sensor status, rain sensor status, traction control status, Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) status, and other collected vehicle system status and sensor information that may be used to determine environmental conditions. Inputs shall also be collected from equipped Maintenance and Construction Vehicles that may have environmental sensors on board. Both current data and snapshots of recent events (e.g., traction control or anti-lock brake system activations) may be reported. The field equipment represented by this process collects the information and sends it to a center for processing and distribution. In all of these roadside systems, the vehicle ID may be read but shall be translated into a unique but anonymous ID that is not traceable in any way to the vehicle owner. The process shall return operational status (state of the device, configuration, and fault data) of the vehicle environmental probe roadside equipment to the Manage Maintenance and Construction function to arrange for repair.
