Interface: Connected Vehicle - Roadway (Environment)

Connected Vehicle to Roadway (Environment) Interface Diagram

Information Flow Definitions

environmental conditions  (Future)  

Current road conditions (e.g., surface temperature, subsurface temperature, moisture, icing, treatment status) and surface weather conditions (e.g., air temperature, wind speed, precipitation, visibility) that are measured by environmental sensors.

roadway characteristics  (Future)  

Detectable or measurable road characteristics such as friction coefficient and general surface conditions, road geometry and markings, etc. These characteristics are monitored or measured by ITS sensors and used to support advanced vehicle safety and control and road maintenance capabilities.
