ITS NEWS & UPDATES, 29 April 2016
The U.S. Department of Transportation is pleased to announce IEEE’s publication of the 1609.3-2016 Standard for Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE) — Networking Services. IEEE 1609.3 defines network and transport layer services that support secure WAVE data exchange, including addressing and routing.
The lack of ubiquitous high-speed communications between vehicles and service providers and the lack of homogeneous communication interfaces between different automotive manufacturers have limited externally driven services to vehicles. The IEEE 1609 family of standards for WAVE completely address the issue of standardized communication interfaces between different manufacturers. This family of standards also provides a sufficient foundation for organizing management functions and modes of operation for system devices to address the lack of high-speed communications between vehicles and service providers.
The WAVE standards define an architecture and a complementary, standardized set of services and interfaces that collectively enable secure vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure wireless communications. Together, these standards provide the foundation for a broad range of transportation applications, including vehicle safety, automated tolling, enhanced navigation, and traffic management.
As part of the IEEE 1609 family of standards, the IEEE 1609.3 standard defines WAVE short messages and provides an efficient WAVE-specific alternative to Internet Protocol Version 6 that can be directly supported by applications. Further, this standard defines the management information base for the WAVE protocol stack.
