This is the Standards Requirements Package for Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC). It includes the following main components: General introduction to the scope and intent of this package; Message transaction sets; Decomposition of the interfaces; Communications layer description; Constraints; and Data dictionary element definitions and sizes. DSRC is the set of wireless interfaces between roadside devices and the vehicle subsystems. These interfaces are dedicated short range links that most commonly utilize radio frequency or infrared communications technology. The DSRC links support electronic tolling and commercial vehicle electronic clearance in current deployments, and the National ITS Architecture envisions that parking management, AHS, and in-vehicle signing could also utilize DSRC in the future. The critical need for standardization for DSRC is to create the possibility of the various applications using the same hardware. This will require the coordination of message set and protocol development, and, of course, common hardware and lower level protocols.
