Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture workshop

The US Department of Transportation (USDOT) Intelligent Transportation System Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) will host a free Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture (CVRIA) public workshop meeting to discuss and solicit feedback on preliminary architecture viewpoint drafts and to gain important feedback from the stakeholders who will be involved in manufacturing, developing, deploying, operating, or maintaining the connected vehicle technologies and applications.

Successful implementation and operation of a connected vehicle environment (CVE) will require vendors and implementers to understand where standards will be needed; planning for deployment of these new technologies and applications will require guidelines that assist deployers with using the new connected vehicle elements within the National ITS Architecture. These efforts to identify standards and develop guidelines are most effectively performed by developing a set of System Architecture Viewpoints that describe the: functional, physical and logical interfaces; enterprise relationships; and communications dependencies for each technology and application within the connected vehicle environment. These viewpoints result in a Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture (CVRIA).

A consolidated list of interfaces to be considered for standardization will be developed from the CVRIA. This consolidated list will include interfaces to be considered for standardization, and a plan for the development, modification, and adoption of standards to cover selected interfaces of sufficient public interest. The resulting architecture viewpoints will be incorporated into the National ITS Architecture.


The public meeting will take place 30 April 2013, 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. PDT and 1 May 2013, 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. PDT at the Hyatt Place, 282 Almaden Boulevard, San Jose, California.
