The Architecture Reference for Cooperative & Intelligent Transportation (ARC-IT) provides a framework for planning, programming, and implementing intelligent transportation systems.
As shown in the figure, ARC-IT is comprised of 4 Views:
- Enterprise - Describes the relationships between organizations and the roles those organizations play within the connected vehicle environment
- Functional - Describes abstract functional elements (processes) and their logical interactions (data flows) that satisfy the system requirements
- Physical - Describes physical objects (systems and devices) and their functional objects as well as the high-level interfaces between those physical objects
- Communications - Describes the layered sets of communications protocols that are required to support communications among the physical objects that participate in the connected vehicle environment
