Transit Vehicle OBE --> Connected Vehicle Roadside Equipment:
local signal priority request

Definitions

local signal priority request (Information Flow): Request from a vehicle to a signalized intersection for priority at that intersection. This flow also allows the vehicle to cancel a priority request (for example, when the vehicle clears the intersection).

Transit Vehicle OBE (Source Physical Object): The Transit Vehicle On-Board equipment (OBE) resides in a transit vehicle and provides the sensory, processing, storage, and communications functions necessary to support safe and efficient movement of passengers. The types of transit vehicles containing this physical object include buses, paratransit vehicles, light rail vehicles, other vehicles designed to carry passengers, and supervisory vehicles. It collects ridership levels and supports electronic fare collection. It supports a traffic signal prioritization function that communicates with the roadside physical object to improve on-schedule performance. Automated vehicle location enhances the information available to the transit operator enabling more efficient operations. On-board sensors support transit vehicle maintenance. The physical object supports on-board security and safety monitoring. This monitoring includes transit user or vehicle operator activated alarms (silent or audible), as well as surveillance and sensor equipment. The surveillance equipment includes video (e.g. CCTV cameras), audio systems and/or event recorder systems. It also furnishes travelers with real-time travel information, continuously updated schedules, transfer options, routes, and fares. A separate 'Vehicle OBE' physical object supports the general vehicle safety and driver information capabilities that apply to all vehicles, including transit vehicles. The Transit Vehicle OBE supplements these general capabilities with capabilities that are specific to transit vehicles.

Connected Vehicle Roadside Equipment (Destination Physical Object): 'Connected Vehicle Roadside Equipment' (CV RSE) represents the Connected Vehicle roadside devices that are used to send messages to, and receive messages from, nearby vehicles using Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) or other alternative wireless communications technologies. Communications with adjacent field equipment and back office centers that monitor and control the RSE are also supported. This device operates from a fixed position and may be permanently deployed or a portable device that is located temporarily in the vicinity of a traffic incident, road construction, or a special event. It includes a processor, data storage, and communications capabilities that support secure communications with passing vehicles, other field equipment, and centers.

Communication Solutions

Solutions are sorted in ascending Gap Severity order. The Gap Severity is the parenthetical number at the end of the solution.

Selected Solution

EU: Signal Control Messages - G5 TCP

Solution Description

This solution is used within Australia and the E.U.. It combines standards associated with EU: Signal Control Messages with those for V-X: G5 TCP. The EU: Signal Control Messages standards include upper-layer standards required to implement signal control information flows. The V-X: G5 TCP standards include lower-layer standards that support broadcast, near constant, low latency vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications using the ETSI GeoNetworking Bundle with TCP/IPv6 over the 5.9GHz spectrum.

Rating Not Applicable Moderate Low
Basis This information can be observed. Only approved vehicles should be allowed to make these requests to the RSE. A corrupted request may lead to a transit vehicle not receiving a green light after requesting it. In this case, this may lead to traffic delays. If an unapproved vehicle is able to forge these requests, they may cause larger scale traffic delays. If the RSE does not receive any requests, the vehicle may not receive the priority it requested. In the worst case scenario the transit vehicle would be forced to wait at some lights until they turned green. It would be more useful for a device to support this application, and only have some messages received, than to not support this application at all.
