The intelligent system for communication between road vehicles and infrastructure 

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 infrastructure components are equipped with Sitraffic ESCoS RSU technology
  • The cars use the RSU’s GPS and their own Car2x onboard units to continuously report their position, speed and direction of travel
  • The traffic management system transmits traffic information, traffic restrictions and hazard warnings
  • The control center uses the available Car2x information for more efficient traffic control and guidance
