by Heinz Sodeikat,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Pacific Rim TransTech Conference: Volume I: Advanced Technologies


From the ongoing major IVHS/RIT operational field tests in Europe and taking into account the results of the 3 years Berlin field trial LISB it can be assumed that the winning communications DS/TMC for low cost and low data rate one-way radio, IR beacons for high performance two-way communication , GSM/GPDS for wide area coverage two-way communication. Basic functions, advantages and initiations of either technology are described. Taking into account the requirements for compatibility and interoperability an integration of these 3 promising winners is proposed. This leads to a Universal Vehicle Information System (UVIS) representing the core of a Universal System Architecture. Cross reference to the US is given.
