Connected Vehicle Core System Baseline Documentation
The Connected Vehicle Systems Engineering Research Program produced baseline documentation defining the Core System that will enable vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure, and vehicle-to- personal device communications. This documentation was developed in conjunction with interested stakeholders across the Country. The documentation provides a concept for the core system operations, and initiates a high-level design of the system defining what the system must accomplish. The documentation also identifies potential areas for new and updated standards, and identifies critical risks to system deployment.
The Core System documentation is particularly useful for those interested in building, deploying, or writing applications for Connected Vehicle systems. The Core System documentation includes:
- Core System Concept of Operations (ConOps) [PDF 2.43MB]
- Core System Architecture Document (SAD) [PDF 3.34MB]
- Core System Requirements Specification (SyRS) [PDF 1.68MB]
- Core System Deployment Critical Risk Assessment Report [PDF 432KB]
- Core System Standards Recommendations [PDF 475KB]
These documents describe a Core System that can use various means of communications technology, can be deployed incrementally, and promotes national interoperability.
