Intelligent transport systems - Cooperative systems - Data exchange specification for in-vehicle presentation of external road and traffic related data (ISO 17425:2016)

The scope of this technical specification is to specify the application that delivers information to ITS stations (vehicle or nomadic device) on qualified road and traffic conditions, in a consistent way with road authorities'/operators' requirements, in the manner that is coherent with the information that would be displayed on a road sign or variable message sign (VMS/DMS). This application is colloquially called "in-vehicle signage". The targeted draft includes the onboard information management, to be contextually coherent (e.g. vehicle characteristics, message priority, etc.). The production of information supporting this application, its qualification and its
relevance that are the responsibility of road authorities/operators (TCC or TMC in general) are out of the scope of this technical specification.

Področje uporabe te tehnične specifikacije je opredelitev programa za posredovanje informacij o razmerah na ustreznih cestah ali v prometu postajam inteligentnih transportnih sistemov (vozilo ali nomadska naprava) na način, ki je skladen z zahtevami cestno prometnih organov in upravljavcev cest ter z informacijami za prikaz na prometnem znaku ali znaku s spremenljivo vsebino (VMS/DMS). Ta program se pogovorno imenuje »znak v vozilu«. Ciljni osnutek vključuje upravljanje informacij v vozilu, da se zagotovi kontekstualna skladnost (npr. lastnosti vozila, pomembnost sporočila itd.). Priprava, odobritev in ustreznost informacij za namen tega programa, za kar so odgovorni cestno prometni organi ter upravljavci cest (na splošno TCC ali TMC), ne spadajo na področje uporabe te tehnične specifikacije.

Introduction

Traditional fixed road signs are positioned on road verges to inform drivers about the applicable

regulations, or to warn them about dangers or to provide them with other general information – this

can be considered as roadside signage information. Beyond this fixed signage, the newer technologies

have now allowed for some time for more accurate dynamic presentation of roadside signage

information depending on the actual road and environmental conditions using variable or dynamic

message signs. With the advent of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) it is possible to

provide more focused and timely guidance to vehicle controllers and drivers by supporting continuous

presentation of the content of roadside signage information in the vehicle along the impacted road

section rather only during the short moments its takes for a vehicle to pass traditional road signs.

Direct in-vehicle presentation of roadside signage information, called In-Vehicle Signage, facilitates the

potential provision of information to specific classes or characteristics of vehicles, and for potentially

more granular definition of affected road sections than stationary-position traditional fixed plate signs

and use of variable/dynamic road signs. It does not deal with contextual speeds which are covered by

ISO/TS 17426.

Delivering the In-Vehicle Signage service to road users can improve road safety, support traffic

management, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It does not preclude other usage of the delivered

information but such services are not in the scope of this Technical Specification.

All ITS services follow the same abstract process structure consisting of a sequence of detection (of an

event) including pre-processing of the detected content, execution of the service algorithm (processing

of detected content), and presentation or utilization of the service result. Figure 1 (extracted from

ISO/TS 17427) summarizes and details this process structure.

Figure 1 — General description of process for In-Vehicle Signage (from ISO/TS 17427:2014,

Annex A)

Based on this abstract and general description of process steps in an ITS service, a large number of

possible scenarios can be derived. This is true for In-Vehicle Signage. Every step in the process chain

can be executed by different actors or stakeholders. Additionally, the execution of a process step for

different spatial areas may be delivered by different actors. Each combination of different actors for

different process steps can be used to identify distinct scenarios.

Assuming that there are two main stakeholder groups in C-ITS, the Infrastructure stakeholder and

the Vehicle stakeholder, multiple combinations, and therefore multiple scenarios, are possible as every

step might be delivered by either stakeholder group (see Figure 2) or shared between both stakeholder

groups (see Figure 3).

ISO/TS 17425:2016(E)
Figure 2 — Possible scenarios — Simple combinations
Figure 3 — Possible scenarios — Complex combinations

Every scenario is one specific of combination of stakeholders executing process steps. This Technical

Specification addresses the scenarios where detection, content pre-processing, and the information

service generation (see Figure 1) are delivered under the responsibility of the infrastructure

stakeholder group (scenario 7 as seen in Figure 2). In scenario 7, the information service presentation

takes place in the vehicle. Scenario 7 is considered in detail in this Technical Specification.

The defined C-ITS applications rely on the functionality and procedures defined within the

Communications Architecture and by the reference ITS station architecture (as defined in ISO 21217

and other International Standards or Technical Specifications from the C-ITS standard set).

Annex A and Annex B contain profiles that define an instantiation for the IVS service. Annex A and

Annex B contain conditional mandatory requirements. There is no need to comply with these

requirements to claim compliance with this Technical Specification.

Annex A contains a profile that is communication technology agnostic. Annex B contains a profile

that is focused on ITS-G5. For details on the referenced standards, see the introduction of the

corresponding Annex.

These profiles are expected to be implemented and validated in European initiatives. Based on the

results of these initiatives, it is intended to specify one interoperable solution in a future version of this

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION ISO/TS 17425:2016(E)
Intelligent transport systems — Cooperative systems —
Data exchange specification for in-vehicle presentation of
external road and traffic related data
1 Scope

This Technical Specification specifies the In-Vehicle Signage service and application that delivers In-

Vehicle Signage information to ITS stations (vehicle ITS stations or personal ITS stations devices)

concerning road and traffic conditions, qualified by road authorities/operators, in a consistent way

with road authority’s/operator’s requirements, in the manner that is coherent with the information

that would be displayed on a road sign or variable message sign (VMS).

NOTE A Variable Message Sign is also named dynamic message sign. Both terms are considered as

synonyms and can be used interchangeably. In the text below, only variable message sign and its abbreviated

term VMS are used.
This Technical Specification defines the following:

— the In-Vehicle Signage service and the In-Vehicle Signage application that instantiates this ITS

service;
— the requirements to be fulfilled by the In-Vehicle Signage service;

— the requirements for using functions provided by the ITS station facilities layer supporting the use

of the In-Vehicle Signage service;

— the ITS-S application processes in the different ITS station, that instantiate the In-Vehicle Signage

ITS service.

This Technical Specification also specifies: the sets of communication requirements and objectives

(profiles) using the methods defined in ISO/TS 17423 to select the level of performance (best effort or

real-time, etc.), confidence and security (authentication, encryption, etc.) for each communication flow

between ITS stations in the scope of the In-Vehicle Signage service.

This Technical Specification defines the selection of relevant functions and procedures provided by the

ITS station facilities layer (ISO/TS 17429) and defines the message structure, content, syntax, atomic

elements to be used by the In-Vehicle Signage application.
NOTE This application is colloquially called “In-Vehicle Signage”.

The In-Vehicle Signage service includes the on-board information management. This management

ensures contextual coherence of the end-user ITS service (e.g. vehicle characteristics, message priority,

etc. avoiding amongst others things the presentation of conflicting information to end-users).

The production of information supporting the In-Vehicle Signage application, its qualification, and its

relevance are out of the scope of this Technical Specification.

This Technical Specification does not specify the design of in-vehicle Human Machine Interfaces (HMI),

but it does specify requirements that such interfaces shall be capable of supporting in order to permit

the correct dissemination and use of information provided by the In-Vehicle Signage service.
