Basic Vehicle (Terminator*)This terminator represents the basic vehicle platform that interfaces with and hosts ITS electronics. The Basic Vehicle terminator provides an interface to drive train, driver convenience and entertainment systems, and other non-ITS electronics on-board the vehicle. This interface allows general vehicle systems (e.g., the stereo speaker system) to be shared by ITS and non-ITS systems. It also allows monitoring and control of the vehicle platform for advanced vehicle control system applications.

Inputs/Outputs: Architecture Flows* and Data Flows*
Basic Vehicle Vehicle
- basic vehicle measures (Architecture Flow*) - Information provided to on-board ITS equipment from the vehicle platform indicating current vehicle status.
Roadway Basic Vehicle
- broadcast advisories (Architecture Flow*) - General broadcast advisories that are provided over wide-area wireless communications direct to the vehicle radio. These analog advisory messages may provide similar content to ITS broadcast information flows, but include no digital data component. Existing Highway-Advisory Radio (HAR) advisory messages are a prime example of this flow.
