Benefits and technology of an intelligent road side unit system for vehicle to infrastructure- and infrastructure to centre communication

Vehicle to infrastructure and vehicle to vehicle communication will enable the development of applications increasing traffic safety and efficiency. The center-to-center communication consortium (C2C-CC) aims to globally harmonise related standards. The underlying architecture is widely based on the upcoming IEEE802.11p / IEEE1609 standards, which adapt WLAN technology to the automotive environment. Moreover there are specific requirementsthat go beyond the layers covered by radio and MAC protocols. Road side units (RSU) are important tools to support and extend safety, as well as efficiency applications. Beneficial applications and the technological basisfor RSU systems are described. For the covering abstract see ITRD E140665.
