Interface: RTA Paratransit Vehicles - Connected/Automated Vehicles
Architecture Flow Definitions
vehicle control event (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Notification that the vehicle has performed an emergency action that could impact the safety of surrounding vehicles. This includes hard braking and activation of traction/stability control systems or other actions that warrant immediate notification of surrounding vehicles. The information flow conveys the vehicle's position, heading, speed, acceleration, transmission, steering wheel angle, braking status, size information, and trajectory.
vehicle environmental data (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Data from vehicle safety and convenience systems that can be used to estimate environmental and infrastructure conditions, including measured air temperature, exterior light status, wiper status, sun sensor status, rain sensor status, traction control status, anti–lock brake status, vertical acceleration and other collected vehicle system status and sensor information. The collected data is reported along with the location, heading, and time that the data was collected. Both current data and snapshots of recent events (e.g., traction control or anti–lock brake system activations) may be reported.
vehicle location and motion (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Data describing the vehicle's position, heading, speed, acceleration, transmission, steering wheel angle, braking status, size information, and trajectory.
vehicle path prediction (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
The predicted future vehicle path of travel. This flow includes an indication of the future positions of the transmitting vehicle that can be used by receiving vehicles to support coordinated driving maneuvers and enhance in–lane and out–of–lane threat classification.
vehicle platoon coordination (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Coordination of control commands between leader and follower vehicles allowing vehicles to join, coordinate with, and separate from platoons of cooperative vehicles. This flow shares platoon size, location, and performance parameters (e.g., platoon speed and spacing) between platooned vehicles. It also coordinates maneuvers between platooned vehicles, including maneuvers as vehicles join and leave the platoon.
