V2X Roadside Unit, V2Xcast® – ITS-G5 stack, Europe
RSU-301E is a V2X (Vehicle to Everything) roadside unit with waterproof IP67 enclosure designed to enable V2X in the Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) environment. RSU-301E provides secure data communication between vehicles and infrastructure equipment, such as Advanced Traffic Controller, to enable cooperative ITS applications. Preloaded ITS-G5 stack and V2Xcast® software, RSU301E provides highest Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I or I2V) application flexibility to fit the various deployment needs of different ITS and V2X system integrators.
- A rich SDK contains facility-layer messages, APIs and example codes supports quick development of V2X applications.
- Seamlessly enable V2X on roadside Linux host via Ethernet connection and V2Xcast®.
- On-board mPCIe socket allows add-on module such as LTE modem.
- Surge protection on the antenna ports and PoE enhance immunity and robustness in voltage spikes events.

Featuring with V2Xcast®, Unex’s innovative software technology, RSU-301E allows two modes of operation:
Unex RSU-301E enables ease of V2X software development through its V2Xcast® technology. Previously, V2X protocol software had to be built and verified complicated APIs, resulting in a duplicated effort, risk and cost. With Unex intuitive V2Xcast solution that provides ready-to-use V2X communication services for V2X applications, customers can significantly cut time-to-market with less development and testing cost.
V2Xcast is supported in RSU-301E to facilitate V2I/I2V application development. It includes two parts – V2Xcast Service and V2Xcast SDK.
Deploy V2Xcast SDK in either RSU-301E or external application host, it includes APIs to get the services from V2Xcast Service and the main functions of facility layer (ITS-MSG), such as message encoder/decoder and example code.
V2Xcast Service image resides in RSU-301E, it combines ETSI ITS-G5 protocol stack that includes GeoNetwork, BTP, DCC, Security, and POTI. V2X communication protocols will be easily enabled via configuration input without any programming.
Security functions provided by V2Xcast® are designed based on a highly secure HSM (Hardware Security Module).
The highly secure HSM with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification is embedded in RSU-301E.
Cryptographic processor eliminates bottlenecks, maximizes application performance and offload CPU’s computation. To protect your sensitive cryptographic keys in a high-assurance key vault, the design provides leverage a keys-in-hardware solution. With the keys-in-hardware solution, all the cryptographic operations are inside HSM and those keys never leave the HSM.
Typical Using Case
The traffic controller unit acts as SPATEM/MAPEM or SPAT/MAP generator to perform the relative encode/ decode. Implement the required V2X stack on RSU-301 to co-operatively work with the traffic controller unit and serves to receive and forward the SPATEM/MAPEM or SPAT/MAP messages as a payload for communication between vehicles and traffic controllers in co-operative ITS. V2I/I2V applications can be flexibly implemented on the traffic controller unit or RSU-301.
