Intelligent Transportation: The Broadband Plan should consider the future needs of a nationwide network that will enable ITS and vehicle safety applications to provide data from vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to roadside infrastructures.

    • Vehicle Communications: Vehicle communications can help electric vehicles (EVs) operate more efficiently and economically, help data and voice services, and improve mileage.

  • Public/Private partnership is needed to help deploy a high-speed nationwide interoperable network to support safety, mobility, environmental, and convenience applications.

  • Initiatives:
    • Department of Transportation (DOT) IntelliDriveSM - formerly known as Vehicle Infrastructure Integration (VII) www.intellidrive.org
      • Safe/smarter transportation system with fully connected driving environment to deliver safety, mobility, and other benefits through a wireless networked environment
      • Will use Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) and other advanced communications
    • Trade Associations such as ITS America and other Consortiums are working to foster the deployment of interoperable communication systems

  • Status:
    • Oct. 1999 - FCC allocated 5.9 GHz (5.850-5.925 GHz) band for DSRC-based ITS applications and adopted basic technical rules for DSRC operations
    • Dec. 2003 - FCC adopted R&O establishing licensing and service rules for the DSRC
  • Implementation Issues:
    • Relevant applications & technology exists
    • In-vehicle technology has been extensively tested
    • Communications equipment is available from many equipment suppliers
    • Needed sensors are already available on the in-vehicle network in most vehicles

  • The communications capability is waiting for government initiatives
    • 5.9 GHz spectrum is already allocated in Europe and the U.S.
      • Japan has allocated similar spectrum
    • Action is needed to put a qualified operator in place to build out the network on favorable terms
      • Can expand along with transportation management infrastructure
    • With sufficient communications infrastructure, regulators can evolve their standards toward a basis in real-world data

vehicle communications electric vehicles
Vehicle Communications & Electric Vehicles
  • Vehicle communications can make electric vehicles more attractive to consumers by helping electric vehicles:
    • Operate more efficiently and economically
    • Reduce dependence on fossil fuels
    • Reduce environmental impact of road travel
  • Issues:
    • Limited driving range
    • Recharge time and cost
    • Scarce recharging infrastructure
    • Battery costs

vehicle communications can help data services
Vehicle Communications Can Help Data Services
  • Range determination
    • Augments in-vehicle navigation system with real-time traffic and road conditions to determine and display one-way and round-trip range based on current battery charge
  • Remote battery and range monitoring
    • Driver-accessible Web portal to check EV battery charge status via PC or mobile phone
    • E-mail or text message to notify driver when charging is complete

Vehicle Communications Can Help Data Services
  • EV charging station location
    • Delivers location of nearby EV charging stations including queue status
    • Important for success of plug-in EVs in urban areas with street parking
  • EV battery swap station location
    • Delivers location of EV charging stations that swap batteries (no need to wait for recharge)
  • Economical EV charging
    • For extended (e.g., overnight) charge, monitors electricity rates and communicates to the EV when charging costs are low

WILLOW, LLC - Sheryl Wilkerson 8/25/09

vehicle communications can help voice services
Vehicle Communications Can Help Voice Services
  • EV roadside assistance
    • Assisted calls from EV drivers to a dealer or roadside assistance provider in the event of a breakdown or service issue
  • Battery replacement
    • Assistance in locating a battery replacement facility and scheduling an appointment
  • Push usage guidance
    • OEMs can contact EV owners with customized guidance on ways to improve battery usage

vehicle communications can help improve mileage
Vehicle Communications Can Help Improve Mileage
  • Vehicle owners with telematics systems can upload their fuel / power usage data and receive a comparison to other drivers
  • Provide vehicle and driver with detailed road characteristics and driving condition information
  • Vehicle automatically adjusts throttle / transmission for upcoming hills, curves, hazards
  • Vehicle can also prompt driver to adjust speed and acceleration

additional mileage improvements
Additional Mileage Improvements
  • Volume of data and real-time needs require delivering data in small increments, based on location of vehicle and direction of travel
    • Wireless delivery also minimizes in-vehicle hardware costs and ensures up-to-date map data
