Software

Featuring with V2Xcast®, Unex’s innovative software technology, RSU-351U allows two modes of operation:

1. Hostless Mode: RSU works as a standalone full-featured V2X unit

RSU-351E Roadside Unit,Applicaon Host

2. Hosted Mode: RSU works as a V2X communication unit to the application host

RSU-351E Roadside Unit,Applicaon Host

Unex RSU-351U 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-351U to facilitate V2I/I2V application development. It includes two parts – V2Xcast Service and V2Xcast SDK.

V2Xcast SDK

Deploy V2Xcast SDK in either RSU-351U or external application host, it includes APIs to get the services from V2Xcast Service and the main functions of facility layer, such as message encoder/decoder and example code.

V2Xcast Service

V2Xcast Service image resides in RSU-351U, it combines PC5 EU stack that includes GeoNetwork, BTP, DCC, Security, and POTI. V2X communication protocols will be easily enabled via configuration input without any programming.

Security

RSU-301E Roadside Unit,V2X safety msg, app

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-351U.

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

RSU, Intelligent Transportation SystemETSI TC-ITS: CAM, DENM, SPATEM, MAPEM 1609.x: J2735 BSM, SPaT, MAP

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-351U 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-351U.
