PM06: Loading Zone Management

This service package manages the occupancy of spaces in a loading/ unloading zone. It monitors the current status of each loading/unloading zone space under its control and makes this information available to arriving vehicles. The service package also operates a reservation system for loading zones, providing the capability for loading zone users, including commercial vehicle drivers or fleet operators, to reserve and pay for future use of a loading/unloading space. Interfaces to the general Vehicle OBE are included since loading zones may be used by any vehicle, though commercial vehicles are the most frequent users.

Includes Physical Objects:

Physical Object Class Description
Driver Vehicle The 'Driver' represents the person that operates a vehicle on the roadway. Included are operators of private, transit, commercial, and emergency vehicles where the interactions are not particular to the type of vehicle (e.g., interactions supporting vehicle safety applications). The Driver originates driver requests and receives driver information that reflects the interactions which might be useful to all drivers, regardless of vehicle classification. Information and interactions which are unique to drivers of a specific vehicle type (e.g., fleet interactions with transit, commercial, or emergency vehicle drivers) are covered by separate objects.
Fleet and Freight Management Center Center The 'Fleet and Freight Management Center' provides the capability for commercial drivers and fleet-freight managers to receive real-time routing information and access databases containing vehicle and/or freight equipment locations as well as carrier, vehicle, freight equipment and driver information. The 'Fleet and Freight Management Center' also provides the capability for fleet managers to monitor the safety and security of their commercial vehicle drivers and fleet.
Parking Area Equipment Field 'Parking Area Equipment' provides electronic monitoring and management of parking facilities. It supports an I2V link to the Vehicle that allows electronic collection of parking fees and monitors and controls parking meters that support conventional parking fee collection. It also includes the instrumentation, signs, and other infrastructure that monitors parking lot usage and provides local information about parking availability and other general parking information. The two primary approaches to monitoring parking area usage are sensing vehicles within parking spots or counting vehicles as they come in and as they leave the area. This portion of the functionality must be located in the parking area where it can monitor, classify, and share information with customers and their vehicles. See also the separate 'Parking Management Center' physical object that may be located in a back office, remote from the parking area, which interfaces with the financial infrastructure and broadly disseminates parking information to other operational centers in the region.
Parking Management Center Center The 'Parking Management Center' manages one or more parking lots by providing configuration and control of field infrastructure, user account management and interfaces with financial systems to manage payment. This p-object takes the back office portion of the Parking Management System's functionality as it was defined in ARC-IT 8.3 and prior.
Parking Manager Center 'Parking Manager' is the human operator that supports back office operations for one or more parking areas.
Personal Information Device Personal The 'Personal Information Device' provides the capability for travelers to receive formatted traveler information wherever they are. Capabilities include traveler information, trip planning, and route guidance. Frequently a smart phone, the Personal Information Device provides travelers with the capability to receive route planning and other personally focused transportation services from the infrastructure in the field, at home, at work, or while en-route. Personal Information Devices may operate independently or may be linked with connected vehicle on-board equipment.
Transportation Information Center Center The 'Transportation Information Center' collects, processes, stores, and disseminates transportation information to system operators and the traveling public. The physical object can play several different roles in an integrated ITS. In one role, the TIC provides a data collection, fusing, and repackaging function, collecting information from transportation system operators and redistributing this information to other system operators in the region and other TICs. In this information redistribution role, the TIC provides a bridge between the various transportation systems that produce the information and the other TICs and their subscribers that use the information. The second role of a TIC is focused on delivery of traveler information to subscribers and the public at large. Information provided includes basic advisories, traffic and road conditions, transit schedule information, yellow pages information, ride matching information, and parking information. The TIC is commonly implemented as a website or a web-based application service, but it represents any traveler information distribution service.
Vehicle OBE Vehicle The Vehicle On-Board Equipment (OBE) provides the vehicle-based sensory, processing, storage, and communications functions that support efficient, safe, and convenient travel. The Vehicle OBE includes general capabilities that apply to passenger cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Many of these capabilities (e.g., see the Vehicle Safety service packages) apply to all vehicle types including personal vehicles, commercial vehicles, emergency vehicles, transit vehicles, and maintenance vehicles. From this perspective, the Vehicle OBE includes the common interfaces and functions that apply to all motorized vehicles. The radio(s) supporting V2V and V2I communications are a key component of the Vehicle OBE. Both one-way and two-way communications options support a spectrum of information services from basic broadcast to advanced personalized information services. Route guidance capabilities assist in formulation of an optimal route and step by step guidance along the travel route. Advanced sensors, processors, enhanced driver interfaces, and actuators complement the driver information services so that, in addition to making informed mode and route selections, the driver travels these routes in a safer and more consistent manner. This physical object supports all six levels of driving automation as defined in SAE J3016. Initial collision avoidance functions provide 'vigilant co-pilot' driver warning capabilities. More advanced functions assume limited control of the vehicle to maintain lane position and safe headways. In the most advanced implementations, this Physical Object supports full automation of all aspects of the driving task, aided by communications with other vehicles in the vicinity and in coordination with supporting infrastructure subsystems.

Includes Functional Objects:

Functional Object Description Physical Object
Fleet Administration 'Fleet Administration' provides vehicle tracking, dispatch, and reporting capabilities to fleet management personnel. It gathers current road conditions, commercial vehicle-specific traffic and parking information, prepares vehicle routes, and provides a fleet interface for toll collection. It also provides route plan information for network performance evaluation. As part of the tracking function, it monitors commercial vehicle location, compares it against the known route and notifies the Emergency Management Center and Fleet-Freight Manager of any deviations, including HAZMAT route restriction violations. It supports carrier participation in wireless roadside inspection programs, monitoring geographic trigger areas and providing current safety data on behalf of the commercial vehicles it manages. It supports pre-hiring checks for potential drivers and monitors the performance of each driver who is hired. It also supports ongoing monitoring of the company's safety performance. Fleet and Freight Management Center
Loading Zone Management 'Loading Zone Management' manages loading zones. It monitors loading zone space occupancy and makes this information available to arriving vehicles and other applications. It monitors the time each vehicle spends in the loading zone and provides this information to drivers in the zone and other applications. Day and time specific management is supported for loading zones that revert to normal vehicle parking spaces in off hours and other day/time specific management strategies. In advanced implementations, reservations are accepted so that a loading zone spot can be reserved with an optional accompanying payment. Vehicles associated with the reservation are identified on arrival and directed to the reserved spot. Parking Area Equipment
Parking Coordination 'Parking Coordination' supports communication and coordination between equipped parking facilities and also supports regional coordination between parking facilities and traffic management systems. Coordination with traffic management supports local traffic control coordination in and around the parking facility and broader regional coordination. It also shares information with transit management systems and information providers to support multimodal travel planning, including parking reservations capabilities. Information including current parking availability, system status, and operating strategies are shared to enable local parking facility management that supports regional transportation strategies. Parking Management Center
Personal Interactive Traveler Information 'Personal Interactive Traveler Information' provides traffic information, road conditions, transit information, yellow pages (traveler services) information, special event information, and other traveler information that is specifically tailored based on the traveler's request and/or previously submitted traveler profile information. It also supports interactive services that support enrollment, account management, and payments for transportation services. The interactive traveler information capability is provided by personal devices including personal computers and personal portable devices such as smart phones. Personal Information Device
TIC Data Collection 'TIC Data Collection' collects transportation-related data from other centers, performs data quality checks on the collected data and then consolidates, verifies, and refines the data and makes it available in a consistent format to applications that support operational data sharing between centers and deliver traveler information to end-users. A broad range of data is collected including traffic and road conditions, transit data, emergency information and advisories, weather data, special event information, traveler services, parking, multimodal data, and toll/pricing data. It also shares data with other transportation information centers. Transportation Information Center
TIC Freight-Specific Travel Planning 'TIC Freight-Specific Travel Planning' provides traveler information and trip planning services for freight routes from source to destination, customized for freight users to indicate truck routes, truck stops, inspection stations, steep grades, etc. Transportation Information Center
TIC Travel Services Information and Reservation 'TIC Travel Services Information' disseminates information about traveler services such as lodging, restaurants, and service stations. Tailored traveler service information is provided on request that meets the constraints and preferences specified by the traveler. This application also supports reservations and advanced payment for traveler services including parking and loading zone use. Transportation Information Center
Vehicle Interactive Traveler Information 'Vehicle Interactive Traveler Information' provides drivers with personalized traveler information including traffic and road conditions, transit information, maintenance and construction information, multimodal information, event information, and weather information. The provided information is tailored based on driver requests. Both one-time requests for information and on-going information streams based on a submitted traveler profile and preferences are supported. Vehicle OBE

Basis Basis Basis
Driver Vehicle OBE driver input Moderate High High
Data included in this flow may include origin and destination information, which should be protected from other's viewing as it may compromise the driver's privacy. Commands from from the driver to the vehicle must be correct or the vehicle may behave in an unpredictable and possibly unsafe manner Commands must always be able to be given or the driver has no control.
Fleet and Freight Management Center Transportation Information Center commercial vehicle trip information Moderate Moderate Moderate
This data would be sanitized and so would not contain any PII. However it will include the location of commercial vehicles and their loads, which could be competitive if not made available on an equal basis. Thus there is a minimal confidentiality requirement. Data should be correct as it relates to CVO, however there this data is not used for any safety or security purposes, this MODERATE and not HIGH. Freight specific planning activities depend on the sharing of this data, so the flow must be reasonably available to support that application.
Fleet and Freight Management Center Transportation Information Center freight traveler information preferences Moderate Moderate Moderate
Includes identity of the freight traveler, which should be protected as it is PII. DISC: Changed from WYO's suggestion of LOW due to PII. No severe consequences if incorrect, but difficult to justify allowing errors in a flow with MODERATE confidentiality. Preferences settings while useful and convenient, do not necessarily need anything beyond LOW. DISC: WYO disagrees
Parking Area Equipment Driver driver parking information Low Moderate Moderate
This information is presented visually to the driver, essentially broadcast in a limited area. This information deserves some degree of confidence in its accuracy, as if it were compromised could be used to direct drivers to unsafe or inappropriate locations. Without direction information, could be LOW. Depending on the size of the parking infrastructure this might be LOW. For larger facilities, directions and locations of available spaces and exits will not be as readily observable, so this is more useful.
Parking Area Equipment Parking Management Center loading zone application status Moderate Moderate Moderate
This information could be of interest to a malicious individual who is attempting to determine the best way to accomplish a crime. As such it would be best to not make it easily accessible. If this is compromised, it could send unnecessary maintenance workers, or cause the appearance of excessive traffic violations, leading to further unnecessary investigation. A delay in reporting this may cause a delay in necessary maintenance, but (a) this is not time-critical and (b) there are other channels for reporting malfunctioning. Additionally, there is a message received notification, which means that RSE can ensure that all intersection safety issues are delivered.
Parking Area Equipment Vehicle OBE loading zone parking information Moderate Moderate Moderate
Reservation-related information is likely to have an identifier that can be associated with a specific vehicle and/or driver, compromise of which could affect the driver's privacy, or the operating company's business. Reservation-related information needs to be available and correct or the vehicle will not be able to access need loading zones and loading zones will be underused. Reservation-related information needs to be available and correct or the vehicle will not be able to access need loading zones and loading zones will be underused.
Parking Management Center Parking Area Equipment loading zone application info Low Moderate Moderate
This information flow does not contain any secret data. Information such as the loading zone operational areas will intentionally be broadcast at a later point. This may be raised if it contains sensitive data, as determined by the supplier (for example, because this flow contains proprietary or security-sensitive information about the device). The geofenced loading zone areas must be tracked accurately, otherwise a loading functions may occur in areas not expected, and personnel may be exposed to safety dangers because they are in areas they not expected to be. However, inaccurate information here does not directly lead to the injury of a crew member because there are other indicators of where the incident work zone is. This data should be received in a timely manner after it is sent. This will determine which lanes are blocked off for maintenance vehicle use.
Parking Management Center Parking Manager parking status Moderate High High
Backoffice operations flows should have minimal protection from casual viewing, as otherwise imposters could gain illicit control or information that should not be generally available. Backoffice operations flows should generally be correct and available as these are the primary interface between operators and system.

Parking Management Center Personal Information Device user account reports High High Moderate
Contains user identification and transaction history, which if compromised could lead to identity or financial theft. Payment setup information, if corrupted, could lead the user to not properly pay for his trips or perhaps pay for others. If intercepted by a malicious actor, this could be manipulated to trick the user into taking action not in his own best interest. These exchanges can be delayed but eventually have to go through or accounts will not be properly updated, mostly impacting revenue collection.
Parking Management Center Transportation Information Center loading zone information Low Moderate Moderate
Occupancy information may be sensitive but is also directly observable. So long as this information contains no identifiers other than the zone occupied, it is unlikely that compromise of this information has any significant impacts. If this information is inaccurate it may lead to double-bookings or less optimal usage of the loading zone. This is in effect a monitoring flow that should 'flip' fairly often. If this informaiton is not regularly available it will result in less optimal use of the loading zone.

Personal Information Device Transportation Information Center travel services request Moderate Moderate Moderate
Includes PII such as charges, time and location, reservations. If this information were corrupted or modified the reservations might be misinterpreted and/or incorrectly made, inconveniencing all parties, costing time and money. There are likely to be many different TICs that can provide this service, but loss of availability would represent a loss of use, which tends to lead to negative feedback. From a business perspective, MODERATE availability should be the minimum for this type of convenience service.
Personal Information Device Transportation Information Center user profile Moderate Moderate Low
Personal preferences and similar information will be associated with a user id of some kind, which should be protected to avoid identity and related thefts. User configuration information needs to be correct the user is subject to third party manipulation or poor quality of service. Probably many opportunities to exchange this data, and will not need to be done often.
Transportation Information Center Fleet and Freight Management Center freight-specific traveler information Moderate Moderate Low
Includes origin and destination of the freight traveler, which should be protected as it is PII. Consequences if incorrect limited to a specific vehicle or small group of vehicles, though they could be high priority or hazmat vehicles. Regardless, difficult to justify allowing errors in a flow with MODERATE confidentiality. Detailed routing information is a result, which has a significant effect on an individual commercial vehicle. Could possibly be LOW.
