payment transaction field equipment coordination Quintuple

Bidirectional?: True

payment transaction field equipment coordination (A-Interconnect): This CVRIA application interconnect encapsulates all of the Layer 2 information flows between two application objects: 'RSE Toll Collection', and 'Roadway Toll Collection Support'. This application interconnect is bi-directional since the underlying layer 2 information flows carry data in both directions.

Roadside Equipment (Source Physical Object): 'Roadside Equipment' (RSE) represents the Connected Vehicle roadside devices that are used to send messages to, and receive messages from, nearby vehicles using Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) or other alternative wireless communications technologies. Communications with adjacent field equipment and back office centers that monitor and control the RSE are also supported. This device operates from a fixed position and may be permanently deployed or a portable device that is located temporarily in the vicinity of a traffic incident, road construction, or a special event. It includes a processor, data storage, and communications capabilities that support secure communications with passing vehicles, other field equipment, and centers.

RSE Toll Collection (Source Application Object): "RSE Toll Collection" collects electronic tolls using V2I communications in toll plazas and other designated toll collection locations. The RSE is connected with other field equipment that detects vehicles, identifies violators, and provides other toll plaza functionality.

ITS Roadway Payment Equipment (Destination Physical Object): 'ITS Roadway Payment Equipment' represents the roadway components of a toll collection system. It provides the capability for vehicle operators to pay tolls without stopping their vehicles. It supports use of locally determined pricing structures and includes the capability to implement various variable pricing policies. Typically, transactions are accompanied by feedback to the customer and a record of the transactions is provided to a back office system (e.g., the Payment Administration Center).

Roadway Toll Collection Support (Destination Application Object): "Roadway Toll Collection Support" provides toll plazas the capability to identify properly equipped vehicles, collect electronic tolls, and provide a positive indication to the driver that a toll was collected. Violators are identified and images are collected. Toll transactions are stored and reported to the Payment Administration Center. For CVRIA, this object represents the equipment that supports electronic payment transactions that are actually performed by the RSE (see "RSE Toll Collection") using V2I communications.
