Functional Objects

Functional ObjectDescriptionUser Defined
EV Barrier System Control'EV Barrier System Control' provides local control of automatic or remotely controlled gates and other barrier systems from an emergency vehicle. Using this capability, emergency personnel can open and close barriers without leaving the vehicle, using V2I Communications to control the barriers.False
EV On-Board En Route Support'EV On-Board En Route Support' provides communications functions to responding emergency vehicles that reduce response times and improve safety of responding public safety personnel and the general public. It supports traffic signal preemption via short range communication directly with signal control equipment and sends alert messages to surrounding vehicles.False
EV On-Board Incident Management Communication'EV On-board Incident Management Communication' provides communications support to first responders. Information about the incident, information on dispatched resources, and ancillary information such as road and weather conditions are provided to emergency personnel. Emergency personnel transmit information about the incident such as identification of vehicles and people involved, the extent of injuries, hazardous material, resources on site, site management strategies in effect, and current clearance status. Emergency personnel may also send in-vehicle signing messages to approaching traffic using short range communications.False
EV Service Patrol Vehicle Operations'EV Service Patrol Vehicle Operations' provides on-board processing and communications to service patrol vehicles that reduce response times and improve safety of responding personnel. It supports service patrol vehicle dispatch and provides incident information back to the dispatching center.False
MCV Barrier System Control'MCV Barrier System Control' provides local control of automatic or remotely controlled gates and other barrier systems from a maintenance and construction vehicle. This allows maintenance and construction field personnel (e.g., snow plow operators) to open and close gates and other barrier systems without leaving the vehicle, using V2I Communications to control the barriers.False
MCV Roadway Maintenance and Construction'MCV Roadway Maintenance and Construction' includes the on-board systems that support routine non-winter maintenance on a roadway system or right-of-way. Routine maintenance includes landscape maintenance, hazard removal (roadway debris, dead animals), routine maintenance activities (roadway cleaning, grass cutting), and repair and maintenance of both ITS and non-ITS equipment on the roadway (e.g., signs, traffic controllers, traffic detectors, dynamic message signs, traffic signals, etc.).False
MCV Vehicle Location Tracking'MCV Vehicle Location Tracking' monitors vehicle location and reports the position and timestamp information to the dispatch center.False
MCV Vehicle System Monitoring and Diagnostics'MCV Vehicle System Monitoring and Diagnostics' includes on-board sensors capable of monitoring the condition of each of the vehicle systems and diagnostics that can be used to support vehicle maintenance. The status of the vehicle and ancillary equipment and diagnostic information is provided to the vehicle operator, repair facility, and dispatch center.False
MCV Winter Maintenance'MCV Winter Maintenance' supports snow plow operations and other roadway treatments (e.g., salt spraying and other material applications). It supports communications with the center to receive information and instructions that are provided to the vehicle operator and also supports remote control of on-board systems. It tracks operational status of snow and ice control operations and provides this information back to the center.False
MCV Work Zone Support'MCV Work Zone Support' provides communications and support for local management of a work zone. It supports communications between field personnel and the managing center to keep the center appraised of current work zone status. It controls vehicle-mounted driver information systems (e.g., dynamic message signs) and uses short range communications to monitor and control other fixed or portable driver information systems in the work zone.False
