ISO 15638-5:2013 defines generic basic vehicle and core application data provision to application service providers to be supported by in-vehicle systems (IVS) for cooperative telematics applications for regulated commercial freight vehicles (TARV), and to provide basic vehicle data for cooperative intelligent transport systems.
ISO 15638-5:2013 provides the specifications for generic basic vehicle data that it is required for all TARV IVSs to support and make available to application service providers via a wireless communications link supported by the IVS, in order to support the provision of regulated and commercial application services.
Some further data concepts, while not required in all cases for every TARV in every jurisdiction, may be required generically for all equipment within a particular jurisdiction, or class of TARV within a jurisdiction, in order for the jurisdiction to achieve its regulation of TARVs.
Equipped vehicles operating internationally will need to carry all of the additional data concepts required by all of the jurisdictions within which they operate, in order to determine their core application data. ISO 15638-5:2013 provides standard definitions for these commonly expected additional data concepts.
A second set of (largely complementary) 'basic vehicle' data is required to support interoperable cooperative intelligent transport systems and this is also determined and provided within ISO 15638-5:2013. The framework architecture and many of the protocols are common between both (TARV and C-ITS) sets of requirements, and also with those being adopted by the wider cooperative ITS sector.
