Anto Komarica of Kapsch displays the V2X system
Kapsch is using the ITS World Congress Detroit to show for the first time the company’s V2X end-to-end capabilities by demonstrating the full V2X system integration, incorporated into its Dynac Traffic Management solution. (Communication from Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) or vice versa (I2V), or from Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) is commonly called “V2X”.)
The solution has been designed to enable seamless communication over TCP/IP, ITS-G5 5.9GHz, and Bluetooth at the same time. Ready for the global marketplace, it addresses the reliability and comfort of a Dynac V2X system for both operators and road users. The integration of V2X functionalities in Dynac, a proven system environment, shows the easy management of V2I and I2V simultaneously.
Using Kapsch TrafficCom 5.9 GHz equipment, the roadside ITS station (MTX-9450), the vehicle ITS station (EVK-3300) and the central ITS station (Dynac), a complete V2X end to end system is achieved. The development is based on existing ETSI/CEN standards including the most recent specifications from the ITS corridor project ECo-AT (part of the European ITS corridor).
The demonstration includes a 23-mile highway route along which several Cooperative ITS use cases will be demonstrated, for instance road works warning (RWW), in-vehicle information (IVI) including speed limits, hazardous location notification, bad weather warning and more.
In a second scenario, the Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) operation will be demonstrated. The vehicle ITS station (V-ITS-S) will generate incidents, similar to cars in real environments. These messages will be sent to Dynac via the R-ITS-S.
