Connected Vehicle Technology-CVT


ü Connected Vehicle Technology (CVT), a great step in Intelligent Transportation System (ITS);

ü A communication platform for exchanging necessary data to improve the traffic management by installing equipments on vehicles and roads;

ü Increasing the awareness of drivers about other near vehicles by exchanging important informations such as position, speed and direction;

ü Helping drivers to make conscious decisions by using on-time informations to avoide dangerous conditions;

ü Using Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) technology due to its wide applicability;

ü Communication methods in CVT:

Ø Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V): exchanging data based on specific standards by means of wireless waves and using electronic equipments called vehicle On-Board Unit (OBU);

Ø Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I): exchanging data between vehicles and infrastructure by using equipments called Road Side Units (RSU).


ü Safety: awaring about surrounding situations by making alerts such as emergency brake warning, emergency vehicle arrival warning, accident occurrence warning, sidetrack-to-main-road vehicle arrival warning, informing vehicles about road traffic status of the out-of-sight regions, and etc.;

ü Traffic: electronic toll collection, emergency vehicle prioritization, proposing optimal route and estimating travel time, intelligent park system, and etc.;

ü Environment: optimizing the scheduling of traffic signals to decrease fuel consumption, transmiting some recommandations compatible with environment to the drivers, and etc.;

ü Other applications: on-time informing the driver by sending the alerts to change or repair the defective components, electronic toll collection according to crossed distance, distance-based insurance, long-distance management for vehicles, and etc.
