Information Flow Definitions
intersection geometry (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
The physical geometry of an intersection covering the location and width of each approaching lane, egress lane, and valid paths between approaches and egresses. This flow also defines the location of stop lines, cross walks, specific traffic law restrictions for the intersection (e.g., turning movement restrictions), and other elements that support calculation of a safe and legal vehicle path through the intersection.
intersection status (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
Current signal phase and timing information for all lanes at a signalized intersection. This flow identifies active lanes and lanes that are being stopped and specifies the length of time that the current state will persist for each lane. It also identifies signal priority and preemption status and pedestrian crossing status information where applicable.
local signal priority request (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
Request from a vehicle to a signalized intersection for priority at that intersection. This flow also allows the vehicle to cancel a priority request (for example, when the vehicle clears the intersection).
location correction (Planned)
Information provided to improve positional accuracy. These corrections allow a mobile GPS receiver, such as a GPS system in a connected vehicle, to achieve a
greater absolute positional accuracy, compensating for errors that exist in satellite positioning.
map updates (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
Map update that could include a new underlying static or real–time map or map layer(s) update. Map layers can include highways, major roads, streets, public transport routes, pedestrian routes, topography, points of interest, and regulatory information including turn restrictions and speed limits.
parking facility geometry (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
Precise spatial description of a parking facility that locates each parking space and the ingress and egress routes that are used to travel to and from the spaces.
roadway geometry (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
The physical geometry of a road segment that specifies the location and width of each lane, including normal lanes as well as special lanes for pedestrians and bicycles, transit vehicles, and trains. This flow also may include the curvature, grade, and superelevation or banking of the road segment.
signal priority status (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
In response to a request for signal priority, this flow indicates the status of the priority or preemption request.
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 location and motion for surveillance (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
Data describing the vehicle's location in three dimensions, heading, speed, acceleration, braking status, and size. This flow represents monitoring of basic safety data ('vehicle location and motion') broadcast by passing connected vehicles for use in vehicle detection and traffic monitoring applications.
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.
