evacuation assistance request  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

A request for evacuation assistance, which may be registered in advance or issued during an evacuation. It specifies the location, number of people that need to be evacuated, and any special needs/requirements.

interactive traveler information  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Traveler information provided in response to a traveler request. The provided information includes traffic and road conditions, advisories, incidents, payment information, transit services, parking information, weather information, and other travel–related data updates and confirmations.

road weather advisories  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Segment–specific weather and road conditions including real–time advisories of deteriorating road and weather conditions, medium–term advisories for the next 212 hours, and long–term advisories more than 12 hours into the future. The advisories may include advisories that are issued by the RSE based on locally collected environmental data (e.g., an ice on bridge advisory).

shelter recommendations  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Recommendation identifying the shelter or shelters best suited to the requestor. Hotels/motels may also be included as potential sheltering options. This flow may also include shelter assignments/reservations.

shelter request  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

A request for shelter information, recommendations, or assignment/reservation. Information provided my include name, current location, number of people in the group, additional requirements (e.g., evacuating with pets, needed medical support).

traffic regulation information  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Traffic rules, regulations, ordinances and statutes that have official status and must be understood by all motor vehicle operators and intelligent vehicles that operate at higher automation levels. The flow includes the regulations and the associated locations, effective date and time periods, and applicable vehicle classes. This flow supports targeted transfer of regulations to end user systems and may be initiated based on a query or pushed so that vehicles have access to relevant regulations for their vehicle classification at the current location, date, and timeframe.

travel services information  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Travel service information and reservations for tourist attractions, lodging, dining, service stations, emergency services, and other services and businesses of interest to the traveler.

travel services request  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Request for travel service information including tourist attractions, lodging, restaurants, service stations, and emergency services. The request identifies the type of service, the area of interest, optional reservation request information, parameters that are used to prioritize or filter the returned information, and sorting preferences.

traveler alerts  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Traveler information alerts reporting congestion, incidents, adverse road or weather conditions, parking availability, transit service delays or interruptions, and other information that may impact the traveler. Relevant alerts are provided based on traveler–supplied profile information including trip characteristics and preferences.

traveler request  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

A request for traveler information including traffic, transit, toll, parking, road weather conditions, event, and passenger rail information. The request identifies the type of information, the area of interest, parameters that are used to prioritize or filter the returned information, and sorting preferences.

traveler sourced updates  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Traveler posts on traffic and road conditions, transit services, traveler services, shelter information and other real–time crowd–sourced data that may be shared with other travelers.

trip confirmation  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Acknowledgement by the driver/traveler of acceptance of a trip plan with associated personal and payment information required to confirm reservations.

trip feedback  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Information provided at the conclusion of a trip that supports performance monitoring and system optimization. Information provided may include a record of the trip including HOV/HOT lane usage and user provided feedback at the conclusion of the trip.

trip plan  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

A travel itinerary identifying a route and associated traveler information and instructions identifying recommended modes and transfer information, ride sharing options, and transit and parking reservation information.

trip request  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Request for trip planning services that identifies the trip origin, destination(s), timing, preferences, and constraints. The request may also include the requestor's location or a request for transit and parking reservations and ridesharing options associated with the trip.

user profile  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Information provided to register for a travel service and create a user account. The provided information includes personal identification, traveler preferences (e.g., maximum transfer wait time, maximum walking distance, mode preferences, special needs), device information, a user ID and password, and information to support payment transactions, if applicable.

vehicle environmental data  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Data from vehicle safety and convenience systems that can be used to estimate environmental and infrastructure conditions, including measured air temperature, exterior light status, wiper status, sun sensor status, rain sensor status, traction control status, anti–lock brake status, vertical acceleration and other collected vehicle system status and sensor information. The collected data is reported along with the location, heading, and time that the data was collected. Both current data and snapshots of recent events (e.g., traction control or anti–lock brake system activations) may be reported.

vehicle situation data  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

This flow represents vehicle snapshots that may be provided by the vehicle to support traffic and environmental conditions monitoring. Snapshots are collected by the vehicle for specific events (e.g., when a sensor exceeds a threshold) or periodically and reported based on control parameters when communications is available. Traffic–related data includes snapshots of measured speed and heading and events including starts and stops, speed changes, and other vehicle control events. Environmental data may include measured air temperature, exterior light status, wiper status, sun sensor status, rain sensor status, traction control status, anti–lock brake status, and other collected vehicle system status and sensor information. The collected data is reported along with the location, heading, and time that the data was collected.

vehicle situation data parameters  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

A request for vehicle situation data that includes parameters used to control the data that is reported and the flow of data reported by the vehicle. This flow identifies the type of data/snapshots that are requested and reporting parameters such as snapshot frequency, filtering criteria (data thresholds for reporting), and reporting interval.
