vehicle charging coordination Quintuple

Bidirectional?: True

vehicle charging coordination (A-Interconnect): This CVRIA application interconnect encapsulates all of the Layer 2 information flows between two application objects: 'Electric Charging Station Management', and 'RSE Electric Charging Support'. This application interconnect is bi-directional since the underlying layer 2 information flows carry data in both directions.

Electric Charging Station (Source Physical Object): The 'Electric Charging Station' provides access to electric vehicle supply equipment that is used to charge hybrid and all-electric vehicles. This includes public charging stations that support consumers, workplace charging stations, and fleet charging stations.

Electric Charging Station Management (Source Application Object): 'Electric Charging Station Management' manages vehicle charging. It communicates with the vehicle during charging and provides charge status information to the driver. A connection with Roadside Equipment provides the capability to integrate charging station coordination and communication into the broader Connected Vehicle Environment.

Roadside Equipment (Destination 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 Electric Charging Support (Destination Application Object): "RSE Electric Charging Support" uses short range communications to coordinate with a vehicle that is being charged, receiving information about the operational state of the electrical system, the maximum charge rate, and the percentage-complete of the charge from the vehicle.
