payment device transaction Quintuple

Bidirectional?: True

payment device transaction (A-Interconnect): This CVRIA application interconnect encapsulates all of the Layer 2 information flows between the 'Vehicle Toll/Parking Payment' application object and the 'Payment Device' physical object. This application interconnect is bi-directional since the underlying layer 2 information flows carry data in both directions.

Payment Device (Source Physical Object): The 'Payment Device' enables the electronic transfer of funds from the user of a service (I.e. a traveler) to the provider of the service. Potential implementations include smart cards that support payment for products and services, including transportation services and general purpose devices like smart phones that support a broad array of services, including electronic payment. In addition to user account information, the payment device may also hold and update associated user information such as personal profiles, preferences, and trip histories.

Vehicle OBE (Destination Physical Object): The Vehicle On-Board Equipment (OBE) provides the vehicle-based processing, storage, and communications functions necessary to support connected vehicle operations. The radio(s) supporting V2V and V2I communications are a key component of the Vehicle OBE. This communication platform is augmented with processing and data storage capability that supports the connected vehicle applications.

In CVRIA, the Vehicle OBE includes the functions and interfaces that support connected vehicle applications for passenger cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Many of these applications (e.g., V2V Safety applications) apply to all vehicle types including personal vehicles, commercial vehicles, emergency vehicles, transit vehicles, and maintenance vehicles. From this perspective, the Vehicle OBE includes the common interfaces and functions that apply to all motorized vehicles.

Vehicle Toll/Parking Payment (Destination Application Object): "Vehicle Toll/Parking Payment" includes the on-board systems that pay for tolls and parking electronically. It includes in-vehicle equipment that communicates with the toll/parking plaza and an optional interface to a carry-in payment device. See also "Vehicle Payment Services", which provides a broader range of payment services.
