|(Continuation of Question 27/16) |
Vehicle information obtained from electronic devices as part of an in-vehicle network are critical to telecommunication/intelligent transportation system (ITS) services and applications, and to related industries (insurance, fleet, etc.), including emergency telecommunications. In such vehicle-centric services, a wide range of applications can be proposed, and it is believed that vehicle information has an important role in the value chain of telecommunication/ITS. Currently, the way of extracting vehicle information differs by manufacturer, model type, and data bus type. A few SDOs are developing related specifications that focus on the scope of their interest.
In addition, recognizing the importance and urgency of the climate change and road safety issues, ITU should be actively involved in ITS, which can help reduce carbon emissions – for instance by reducing congestion. It is anticipated that vehicle-centric services implemented based on global standards will contribute to mitigating climate change.
Vehicle gateways are intended to provide and support telecommunication using the network environment both within the car and outside it (vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure). In this context, vehicle gateways have a significant role to support ubiquitous connectivity in heterogeneous environments. Therefore, global standards for vehicle gateways should be developed to support global seamless ITS services and applications, and to allow in any vehicle plug-and-play operation of any consumer device.
Study items to be considered include, but are not limited to:
- definition and the scope of vehicle gateway;
- functions and service requirements of a vehicle gateway platform to support vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) telecommunications;
- functional architectures and mechanisms of a vehicle gateway;
- use cases and scenarios for vehicle gateways as a bridge between cars (V2V) and between cars and infrastructure (V2I);
- study enhancements required to provide energy savings and reduction of gas emissions, and to include direct or indirect support of emergency and early warning services (e.g. for traffic accidents);
- study road safety issues;
- study items on integration of ubiquitous devices;
- considerations on how to help measure and mitigate climate change.
Tasks include but are not limited to:
- studies on the requirements in terms of services and functions to support V2V and V2I;
- studies on the functions of vehicle gateway and its reference model(s);
- studies on the open interface between in-vehicle network and ICT devices;
- studies on the relevant necessary protocols to support vehicle oriented services and applications.
