Connected Vehicle Technology

Growing traffic volumes, increasing air pollution, rising costs: Connected Vehicle technology will help you lead the way to seamless mobility making your city ready for the next mobility revolution.

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
  • Integration of all required international V2x communication standards
  • High security standards incl. PKI handling via ESCoS CMS
  • Open interfaces to communicate with controllers via standard connections
  • Defined security concept for maintenance purposes
  • Spare interfaces for future connection of innovative technologies such as LTE5G
  • Full hardware and software compatibility with all Vehicle2x solutions
  • Deployment as stand-alone or integrated solution
  • Complete integration in the Sitraffic system landscape possible via link-up to ESCoS CMS and Sitraffic Cxx
  • Full compliance with EU and US standards
  • Easy installation
  • Modular concept enables the creation of project-specific solutions and facilitates adaptation to future requirements
  • Multi-purpose mounting system
  • Very accurate positioning performance

Tampa: Innovative vehicle-to-infrastructure technology
