Intelligent digitalization of road networks is of critical importance for economic growth and quality of life. This is why Siemens has developed the Sitraffic ESCoS Vehicle2x technology. ESCoS is a secure, cooperative technology for communication between all kinds of vehicles and the infrastructure. Vehicle2x is part of the growing “Internet of Things”. Sitraffic ESCoS Road Side Units provide key data for a more precise picture of the current traffic situation, enabling more efficient traffic control, a significant reduction in accident numbers and an even greater cut in emissions than possible up to now.
When it comes to communication, Car2x is the solution: Siemens’ cooperative traffic management system allows vehicles to connect with the infrastructure and the traffic control centers. The Road Side Unit (RSU) provides the vehicles directly with time-critical data such as SPAT (Signal Phase and Timing) while non-time-critical information such as IVI (In Vehicle Information) is transmitted from the cooperative ESCoS-CMS traffic management center via LTE to the cars. The result: more effective prevention of congestion and accidents and a stronger reduction in pollutant emissions – essential factors for cities and other municipalities aiming to improve quality of life and boost economic growth.
Car2x – this is how the smart technology works
The technological heart of Vehicle2X consists in the cooperative control center Sitraffic ESCoS CMS and the field device Sitraffic ESCoS RSU for establishing the connection. Sitraffic CMS has been designed to integrate the complex structures of urban and interurban traffic control centers and parking guidance systems. Developed to communicate via WiFi 802.11p and LTE-V2x with any vehicles equipped with this standard, Sitraffic RSU is a perfect fit for urban road networks and motorways alike.
