Consider the spatial environment in which a wireless technology is planned to assure signal reception will be sufficient to support V2I applications.

Experience deploying DSRC and cellular communications in Oakland County, Michigan.

Novi; Michigan; United States

Background (Show)

Lesson Learned

  • Identify areas with poor cellular signals. Even though the cellular signal was adequate for the field test, better reception would be needed for a larger deployment.
  • Consider line-of-sight design constraints. Early field testing of dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) technology was challenging because of the limitations the radios had when transmitting and receiving data. Trees interfered with DSRC radio signals.
  • Consider the effects of driver behavior. There may be a limited speed-range window in which a driver will have freedom to maneuver in traffic and comply with recommended intersection approach speeds.
