1.1.7–Collect Vehicle Environmental Probe Data (Pspec*)This process shall collect environmental probe data from passing vehicles that are equipped with a short range communications device. This communications with equipment onboard the vehicle provides vehicle sensor data such as measured air temperature, exterior light status, wiper status, sun sensor status, rain sensor status, traction control status, ALB status, and other collected vehicle system status and sensor information that may be used to determine environmental conditions. Both current data and snapshots of recent events (e.g., traction control or anti-lock brake system activations) may be reported. The field equipment represented by this process collects the information and sends it to a center for processing and distribution. In all of these roadside systems, the vehicle ID is read and translated into a unique but anonymous ID that is not traceable in any way to the vehicle owner. The process shall return operational status (state of the device, configuration, and fault data) of the vehicle environmental probe roadside equipment to the Manage Maintenance and Construction function to arrange for repair.
