|Purpose of Slide:
Explain how connected vehicles work.
connected vehicle concept is illustrated here.
|Key Messages: Real-time
data is transmitted through multiple sources and alerts drivers to avoid
crashes or back-ups. Infrastructure data includes signal phase and timing,
speed warnings (drive 35 mph), and the number of available parking spaces.
with dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) will broadcast information
such as their location, speeds, and direction of travel. In the future, it
may be possible to share additional data such as crash notifications and
location, pavement condition, or slippery road surfaces.
|The full set of
vehicle data available through the basic safety message includes brake
status, turn signal status, vehicle length, vehicle width, and bumper height,
as well as time, heading angle, lateral acceleration, longitudinal
acceleration, yaw rate, throttle position, steering angle, headlight status,
wiper status, external temperature, and vehicle mass.
|What this picture
does not show is data being transmitted to the traveler via cellular
technology. The connected vehicle concept encompasses connectivity between
vehicles, the infrastructure, and the traveler.
