Physical Viewpoint

An icon shown as a purple parallelogram representing the Physical Viewpoint

The Physical Viewpoint represents physical elements that operate in the mobile environment, the field and the back office, where connections between elements and interactions with the external environment are considered. The Physical Viewpoint deals with the composition of these physical objects (including application servers, data stores, network components, mobile and non-mobile transportation elements, and wired and wireless links), their physical connections and interactions, and the allocation of functionality to those elements. For analysis of the CVRIA the focus is on physical objects, links, and application objects assigned that implement the connected vehicle functionality.

The following table shows the symbols used to represent elements of the Physical Viewpoint:
