Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


This deliverable summarises the different approaches involved in the definition of RTT/ATT applications and their classification according to the joint CEN/CENELEC/ETSI expert group TET. Most of the applications require wireless communication from the vehicle to roadside equipment, i.e. a beacon, and vice versa. At least one group of applications, i.e. co-operative driving, needs communication between different vehicles. COMIS aims to specify the air-interface for a maximum number of applications. The work is based on a questionnaire on communication and traffic characteristics which has enabled estimates of the characteristics to be established. The frequency band for communication ranges from 63 GHz to 64 GHz. The benefits of this frequency choice are explained together with the position and functionality of the air-interface MICOS inside the vehicle, at the roadside and beneath other communication facilities. The following data channels will be available: (i) beacon - vehicle; (ii) beacon - relay vehicle(s) - vehicle; (iii) vehicle - relay vehicle(s) - vehicle.
