FDOT District 5 Regional ITS Architecture (Final)

Functional Requirements: Roadway Probe Data Communications


Description: This equipment package collects probe data from passing vehicles that are equipped with a short range communications device. The probe data collected by this equipment package may include link travel times, average speeds, road conditions, and any other data that can be measured and communicated by passing vehicles. This equipment package consists of field equipment that communicates with passing vehicles using short range communications, collects the provided information, and sends the collected information back to a center for processing and distribution.
Functional Requirements:
  1. The field element shall communicate with passing vehicles for traffic data link time calculations and send collected data to the controlling center; identification will be removed to ensure anonymity.
  2. The field element shall communicate with on-board equipment on passing vehicles to collect current vehicle position, speed, and heading and a record of previous events (e.g., starts and stops, link travel times) that can be used to determine current traffic conditions.
  3. The field element shall communicate with on-board equipment on passing vehicles to collect current status information and a record of previous events (e.g., temperature, wiper status, headlight status, traction control system status) that can be used to determine road and surface weather conditions.
  4. The field element shall communicate with on-board equipment on passing vehicles to collect vehicle trip information (e.g., origin and destination information, travel times) that can be used to support transportation planning.
  5. The field element shall communicate with on-board equipment on passing vehicles to collect a history of precise positioning information that can be used to derive or verify accurate roadway geometry and lane features for use by map update providers.
  6. The field element shall aggregate and forward collected probe information to the center.
  7. The field element shall provide roadside equipment operational status to the center.
  8. The field element shall provide roadside equipment fault indication to the center for repair.
