Volume 4 of the ITU-R Handbook on Land Mobile (including Wireless Access) provides a summary of the use of wireless communications in intelligent transport systems (ITS), current and under development, around the globe, including architecture, systems, and applications. This is a rapidly developing sector, which is still partly in its infancy.



Dedicated short range communications

DSRC refers to a dedicated short range communication between a roadside infrastructure and vehicles or mobile platforms for ITS applications. DSRC is the use of non-voice radio techniques to transfer data over short distances between roadside and mobile radio units to perform operations related to the improvement of traffic flow, traffic safety and other intelligent transport service applications in a variety of public and commercial environments. DSRC services include vehicle control systems, traffic management systems, traveller information systems, public transportation systems, fleet management systems, emergency management systems and electronic payment services.
