wide area broadcast traveler information Quintuple

Bidirectional?: False

wide area broadcast traveler information (A-Interconnect): This CVRIA application interconnect encapsulates all of the Layer 2 information flows between two application objects: 'WAID Broadcast Services', and 'Personal Traveler Information Reception'. In this case, there is only a single Layer 2 flow associated with this interconnect, so the Layer 1 application interconnect name and the Layer 2 information flow name are both 'wide area broadcast traveler information'. This application interconnect is uni-directional since the underlying layer 2 information flows go from 'Wide Area Information Disseminator' to 'Personal Information Device'.

Wide Area Information Disseminator (Source Physical Object): The 'Wide Area Information Disseminator' represents the Connected Vehicle center based systems and communications equipment that is used to send messages to equipped vehicles using wide-area wireless communications such as satellite radio, terrestrial FM broadcast subcarrier, or cellular data networks.

Frequently a smart phone, the Personal Information Device provides travelers with the capability to receive route planning and other personally focused transportation services from the infrastructure in the field, at home, at work, or while en-route. Personal Information Devices may operate independently or may be linked with connected vehicle on-board equipment.
