This Technical Specification defines requirements for short-range communication for the purposes of compliance checking in autonomous electronic fee-collecting (EFC) systems. Compliance checking communication (CCC) takes place between a road vehicle's on-board equipment (OBE) and an outside interrogator (road-side mounted equipment, mobile device or hand-held unit), and serves to establish whether the data that are delivered by the OBE correctly reflect the road usage of the corresponding vehicle according to the rules of the pertinent toll regime.
This Technical Specification is applicable to OBE in an autonomous mode of operation; it is not applicable to compliance checking in dedicated short-range communication (DSRC)-based charging systems. It defines data syntax and semantics, but does not define a communication sequence. All the attributes defined herein are required in any OBE claimed to be compliant with this Technical Specification, even if some values are set tonot definedin cases where a certain functionality is not present in an OBE. The interrogator is free to choose which attributes are read, as well as the sequence in which they are read. In order to achieve compatibility with existing systems, the communication makes use of the attributes defined in ISO 14906 wherever possible.
Specific definitions are given for the CEN-DSRC specified in EN 15509, as well as for the use of ISO CALM IR, UNI DSRC and ARIB DSRC as alternatives to the CEN-DSRC. The attributes and functions defined are for compliance checking by means of the DSRC communication services provided by DSRC layer 7, with the CCC attributes and functions made available to the CCC applications at the road-side equipment (RSE) and OBE. The attributes and functions are defined on the level of ADU (application data units).
Test specifications are not within the scope of this Technical Specification.
