Information Flow Definitions

vehicle cluster coordination  (Planned)  Selected Comm Solution

Coordination between CACC–equipped vehicles that enable formation and management of strings of adjacent equipped vehicles that coordinate speed management across the string. This flow includes coordination between CACC–equipped vehicles that enable adjacent vehicles in the same lane to identify each other and couple. Depending on the CACC implementation, this flow also supports identification of the lead vehicle in the string, operating performance parameters for the string, destination information so that drivers can join strings that share their destination, and coordination so that strings of vehicles are ordered based on the individual weight and performance profile of each participating vehicle. This flow also supports dissolution of CACC vehicle strings as vehicles depart from the string.

vehicle environmental data  (Planned)  Selected Comm Solution

Data from vehicle safety and convenience systems that can be used to estimate environmental and infrastructure conditions, including measured air temperature, exterior light status, wiper status, sun sensor status, rain sensor status, traction control status, anti–lock brake status, vertical acceleration and other collected vehicle system status and sensor information. The collected data is reported along with the location, heading, and time that the data was collected. Both current data and snapshots of recent events (e.g., traction control or anti–lock brake system activations) may be reported.

vehicle location and motion  (Planned)  Selected Comm Solution

Data describing the vehicle's location in three dimensions, heading, speed, acceleration, braking status, and size.

vehicle path prediction  (Planned)  Selected Comm Solution

The predicted future vehicle path of travel. This flow includes an indication of the future positions of the transmitting vehicle that can be used by receiving vehicles to support coordinated driving maneuvers and enhance in–lane and out–of–lane threat classification.

vehicle platoon coordination  (Planned)  Selected Comm Solution

Coordination of control commands between leader and follower vehicles allowing vehicles to join, coordinate with, and separate from platoons of cooperative vehicles. This flow shares platoon size, location, and performance parameters (e.g., platoon speed and spacing) between platooned vehicles. It also coordinates maneuvers between platooned vehicles, including maneuvers as vehicles join and leave the platoon.

vehicle profile  (Planned)  Selected Comm Solution

Information about a vehicle such as vehicle make and model, fuel type, engine type, size and weight, vehicle performance and level of control automation, average emissions, average fuel consumption, passenger occupancy, or other data that can be used to classify vehicle eligibility for access to specific lanes, road segments, or regions or participation in cooperative vehicle control applications.
