Enhancing DSRC Solutions, Capabilities, and Applications

Through enhanced safety features on automobiles, vehicle accidents are more survivable. Now the focus is on collision and accident avoidance. The development of the 5.9GHz Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) solution is making steady progress due to the noble efforts of a consortium of RFID providers working in a public/private partnership with the USDOT. The challenge presented here is for greater awareness and acceptance of Infrared Communications as a field-proven and viable form of DSRC that is widely accepted internationally, but under utilized in the United States. Continuous Air-interface for Long & Medium range initiative (CALM) TC204 is an ISO standard for DSRC that includes cellular communications (ISO 21212-3 and 21213-3), radio frequency communications (ISO 21215-3 and 21216-3) and infrared communications (ISO 21214-3). All technologies at the physical layer of the CALM architecture are required to comply with the CALM architecture and therefore be compatible at the network interface layer.
