The standardisation of infrared communication

An essential key requirement of future ITS communication is the ability to set up "ad-hoc connections" and to transmit KBytes of data in a few milliseconds. The most crucial and time-consuming part in a multinode environment is the link-setup procedure, especially in a free space situation withunpredictable and fast changing link conditions. ISO-CALM Infrared, the new ISO-Standard (ISO 21214) for car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure communication, presents an outstanding solution to this problem. The standard offers a simple method to address other communication partners directly andto communicate with them direction-oriented. Infrared communication has outstanding capabilities to shape communication zones according user-requirements, features high data rate for up- and download, and offers, due to the beaming characteristics, high reliability and protection of privacy.
