Intelligent digitalization of road networks is of critical importance for economic growth and quality of life. This is why Siemens has developed the Sitraffic ESCoS Vehicle2x technology. ESCoS is a secure, cooperative technology for communication between all kinds of vehicles and the infrastructure. Vehicle2x is part of the growing “Internet of Things”. Sitraffic ESCoS Road Side Units provide key data for a more precise picture of the current traffic situation, enabling more efficient traffic control, a significant reduction in accident numbers and an even greater cut in emissions than possible up to now.
There are many places where the routes taken by road vehicles intersect with those of other means of transport such as trains, ships and even airplanes (on the airfield). Our vision of the future transport “Internet of Things” includes constant communication between all those elements – a goal that we continue to work on every day.
When it comes to communication, Car2x is the solution: Siemens’ cooperative traffic management system allows vehicles to connect with the infrastructure and the traffic control centers. The Road Side Unit (RSU) provides the vehicles directly with time-critical data such as SPAT (Signal Phase and Timing) while non-time-critical information such as IVI (In Vehicle Information) is transmitted from the cooperative ESCoS-CMS traffic management center via LTE to the cars. The result: more effective prevention of congestion and accidents and a stronger reduction in pollutant emissions – essential factors for cities and other municipalities aiming to improve quality of life and boost economic growth.
Car2x – this is how the smart technology works
The technological heart of Vehicle2X consists in the cooperative control center Sitraffic ESCoS CMS and the field device Sitraffic ESCoS RSU for establishing the connection. Sitraffic CMS has been designed to integrate the complex structures of urban and interurban traffic control centers and parking guidance systems. Developed to communicate via WiFi 802.11p and LTE-V2x with any vehicles equipped with this standard, Sitraffic RSU is a perfect fit for urban road networks and motorways alike.
Sitraffic ESCoS-Vehicle2x. Benefits and highlights
Downloads, support and services
Growing traffic volumes, increasing air pollution, rising costs: A mobility solution cannot solve all your infrastructure challenges on its own. But it will always contribute to making your city or municipality even more modern, more attractive and more environmentally friendly.
On the Car2x corridor from Rotterdam via Frankfurt to Vienna and on a 45-km test r in Vienna: Car2x as the first element of a future inclusive Vehicle2x solution has already been implemented.
Improved roadworks management, less obstruction to traffic
Traffic sign content and traffic light switching state transmitted to the vehicles
Optimized traffic flow
Drivers dynamically adapt their driving behavior to current conditions
Significant harmonization of traffic flow
Increased road safety
