The US Intelligent Transportation Systems Commercial Vehicle Operations program focuses on the study and application of advanced technologies in order to improve the quality of service, productivity, safety, and efficiency of commercial vehicles. Communication technologies are the backbone of this process. They allow the exchange of information between the commercial vehicle, the operations center, the administration center and the transportation infrastructure.
This paper addresses US efforts toward the development of a Commercial Vehicle System Information Network (CVISN). The key issue in CVISN is the definition of flexible and cost-efficient physical communication systems. A brief overview of CVISN concepts is offered. Then, existing and emerging communication technologies are presented. Candidate CVO communication solutions are identified and discussed in detail with respect to specific CVO systems and CVISN operations requirements.
