Deliverables

All the deliverables created as part of the project are listed here. For a quick summary of all the activities of the project, the reader is advised to start with Deliverable D7.1. The other deliverables contain more details about individual activities.

Deliverable D1.1 - UseCases, Requirements, Performance Evaluation Criteria

The objective of this document is to describe V2X use cases, requirements and performance evaluation criteria. The use case definitions include a short description of the stakeholders/roles and what is accomplished by the use case. Traffic scenarios that should be targeted with the use cases are defined

such as the deployment environment, and vehicle characteristics (density, speed, lanes). Based on the selected use cases and traffic scenarios, the set of requirements will be defined that are to be used and satisfied by the implementation technology. This includes requirements on:


  • Communication links / protocols
  • Intra-car-connectivity (sensors / actors),
  • Applications (messaging, processing, HMI)
  • General features to be supported by the selected use cases


Additionally, this document describes the test measurements and logs that are to be collected along with the collection methodology. The evaluation criteria applied to the results of the use case trials and the data collected during drive tests will be defined. Qualitative evaluation criteria will be used to determine whether requirements and targeted features of the selected use cases have been satisfied. Quantitative evaluation criteria will be used to determine selected performance metrics such as effective range of safety messages or effective latency of warning signals etc..

Deliverable D2.2 - Final ConVeX Architecture

This document describes the functional architecture and the supported topology of the various system components to be implemented for the ConVeX trial.

In this sense, all hardware related components that build up the trial system and the interfaces between them with the used communication protocols are        included here. Specifically, the following components and functionalities will be described in detail:


  • C-V2X communication platform for in-vehicle, Road Side Unit and Vulnerable Road User
  • 4G/ 5G Test Network architecture
  • Communication links and used protocols
  • Interfaces between different components to support the exchange of information and allow to utilize functions (e.g. APIs)
  • Introduction of the simulation platform used in the scope of the project

Deliverable D3.1 - Radio Technologies 

This document analyses and compares the features of existing radio technologies 802.11p and LTE, both cellular and sidelink. For the features relevant for use cases defined in the project, the document assesses the theoretical performance and on that basis draws a conclusion on the suitability for the respective use cases. Furthermore, the radio spectrum requirements are estimated, together with the required density of cellular base stations and R-ITS. 


Deliverable D3.2 - Radio Performance 

This document provides a simulative evaluation of C-V2X and ITS-G5 link level performance and C-V2X system performance. Chapter 4 presents the link level simulators for C-V2X and ITS-G5, followed by simulation results. Chapter 5 then presents the system simulator for the C-V2X mode 3, where the car to car communication is completely scheduled by eNBs of the LTE network, followed by the discussion of simulation results. The final chapter 6 contains a summary and conclusion.


Deliverable D4.1 - Roadside ITS Station Specification

This document describes the elaborated architecture of C-V2X enabled Roadside Units in the field of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS). This document describes both, the generic design concepts (blueprint character) and the specific demonstrator implementations.


Deliverable D5.1 - Vehicular ITS Station Specification

This document describes the usage of the C-V2X development platform as vehicular ITS station and how it is integrated into the Audi vehicle.


Deliverable D6.1 - Report on Lab and First Field Trials

This document summarizes results from initial laboratory and field test campaigns performed by the ConVeX project with the C-V2X equipment. Also, a summary of how to test the C-V2X equipment in a lab environment is provided as well as how to examine that the required functionality is properly in operation after installation of a DP in vehicular and roadside ITS stations.


Deliverable D7.1 - Final Report on Field Test and Evaluation Results

This document summarizes and evaluates field testing results of the ConVeX project. The executive summary highlights the most important achievements and findings of the project and lists key events, where practical results from the project were demonstrated. Further chapters summarize performance aspects related to the physical layer for V2V/V2I and relevant network aspects for V2N, the results of the use case work and the outcome of the simulation activities.
