CDPD AS A NATURAL PLATFORM FOR WIDE-AREA ITS APPLICATIONS

Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) applications can be naturally divided into wide-area and short-range. As a cell-based packet data service, Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) is a natural means for providing wide-area distribution/collection of ITS information and for leveraging huge and pervasive investments in cellular technology (~$13 billion in the United States alone). CDPD is the only fully standardized packet data service in existence, and is already deployed in a few major metropolitan areas, and planned for many more. The localized impact of major incidents on ITS data loads has also been analyzed and shown to be easily accommodated by CDPD. In this paper, the authors do not dwell on CDPD performance, but instead focus on wireless data loads generated by wide-area ITS applications from the viewpoint of involved transportation entities.
