Physical Object: Transit Vehicle OBE
Transit Vehicle V2V Safety
'Transit Vehicle V2V Safety' exchanges current vehicle location and motion information with other vehicles in the vicinity, uses that information to predict vehicle paths, and notifies the driver when the potential for an impending collision is detected. Information from on-board sensors (e.g., radars and image processing) are used to augment the V2V communications, if available. In addition to notifying the driver, control information can also be provided to support automated control functions that can avoid the collision. This object is similar to the 'Vehicle Basic V2V Safety', but it accounts for crash scenarios that are unique to transit vehicles (e.g., Vehicle Turning Right in Front of Bus). It is also stop-aware since stop locations pose specific crash threats for transit vehicles. Finally, the detection and control algorithms, filters, and timing account for bus performance and risk profiles associated with remote vehicles that are unique to transit.
This functional object is included in the "Transit Vehicle OBE" physical object.
This functional object is included in the following service packages:
- PT12: Transit Vehicle at Station/Stop Warnings
- PT13: Vehicle Turning Right in Front of a Transit Vehicle
- VS04: V2V Special Vehicle Alert
This functional object is mapped to the following Functional View PSpecs:
|01||The transit vehicle shall exchange current vehicle location and motion information with other vehicles in the vicinity.|
|02||The transit vehicle shall provide to other vehicles an indication of its intent to leave a transit stop.|
|03||The transit vehicle shall provide a warning to the transit vehicle operator if a nearby vehicle is a collision threat as the transit vehicle prepares to leave a stop or station.|
|04||The transit vehicle shall identify if another vehicle is pulling in front of it to make a right turn using location information received from other vehicles.|
|05||The vehicle shall broadcast transit vehicle behavioral information (pulling out, about to stop, etc.) to other vehicles in the vicinity.|
|06||The vehicle shall acquire transit vehicle trajectory information.|
Currently, there are no standards associated with the functional object itself though the interfaces may have standards associated with them.
