IVS-KOM: A Reference Platform for Heterogeneous ITS Communications
Various radio technologies address the diverse performance requirements of today's ITS applications and compete for deployment. Instead of choosing a specific technology, a heterogeneous mix of currently available as well as emerging V2X technologies is considered. Benefits are: the support of mixed deployments, flexible technology choice based on application requirements and reliability enhancements achieved by redundancy concepts. Besides presenting the highly heterogeneous architecture, we show the implementation design of its main components. Further we present a proof-of-concept implementation, which is validated in the Dresden test-bed for different use cases.
