Sharing Data between Mobile Devices, Connected Vehicles and Infrastructure Task 12: D2X Hub Prototype Field Test, Evaluation Plan and Results

“Sharing Data between Mobile Devices, Connected Vehicles and Infrastructure” was a U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT)-sponsored research project to study the integration of mobile devices (such as smartphones) into the Connected Vehicle (CV) environment. Objectives included examining the feasibility and benefits of utilizing non-DSRC (Dedicated Short-Range Communications) communication mechanisms for the transmission of mobility and safety messages, developing and testing modifications to the existing mobility and safety messages to make them applicable for mobile devices, and creating and demonstrating potential methods for coordinating messages and communications related to safety and mobility between mobile devices, vehicles, and infrastructure. The Field Test Plan / Field Test Evaluation Report documents the field test plan, experimental design, system, and results, including answers to the research questions posed by the contract, lessons learned, and recommendations for future research. Overall, results showed the ability to reliably generate, transmit, and receive messages between mobile devices and connected vehicles. The messages to incorporate mobile devices into the CV environment functioned as designed and provided the necessary data for the prototype mobility and safety applications to perform their functions. Furthermore, coordination of messages between mobile devices functioned as designed, reducing mobile device DSRC message volume and thereby improving CV message and application processing time.
