Specialist Task Force 447:
GeoNetworking media-dependent functionality for
Who we are:
Team Leader: Jan de Jongh, TNO,
Team Members: Jérôme Haerri, Eurecom,
Katrin Sjöberg, Volvo,
Dieter Smely, Kapsch,
Tessa Tielert, KIT,
What we do:
The proposed action of the STF aims at the development of the standard for
GeoNetworking media-dependent functioning for ITS G5 (TS 102 636-4-2) and will
provide recommendations (change requests) to other standards. For the ETSI TS
102 636-4-2 standard development, the work includes in particular the
specification of network-layer DCC and network-layer support for multi-channel
operation of ITS-G5. For the recommendations/change request, the action should
develop suggestions for other standards developed in TC ITS WGs 2, 3 and 4 in
order to resolve dependencies of these standards with the GeoNetworking

Terms of Reference
Why we do it:
proposed action will allow the finalization of the last critical part of the
relevant series of standards for GeoNetworking and is an important part to
successfully execute the mandate M/453 and improve the overall set of standards
developed by ETSI TC ITS. The overall GeoNetworking series represents the major
part of the standards for the ITS Network and Transport Layer and is an
important step towards the finalisation of the overall minimum set of
proposed action will complete the series of networking and transport protocols
for ad hoc communication with ITS-G5. The completion of the series is a
requirement for the deployment and market introduction of the system.
ETSI TC ITS:
The tasks will be executed by TC ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems), which is
the ETSI lead technical body. TC ITS is responsible for the development and
maintenance of the standards, specifications and other deliverables to support
the development and implementation of ITS Service provision across the network,
for transport networks, vehicles and transport users, including interface
aspects and multiple modes of transport and interoperability between systems,
but not including ITS application standards, radio matters, and EMC.
has created Technology Clusters to group standardisation work around a set of
technology domains such as Internet of Things, Transport, Wireless Technologies,
etc. Each cluster groups the relevant ETSI Technical Bodies with related
Standards Partners (including Fora), research partners and applicable mandates.
It summarises the current (standardisation) work, but also identifies new areas
of work and activities. The intention is to enable collaborative efforts within
clusters as well as across clusters. They are also a valuable dissemination tool
to identify the key areas of ETSI standardisation. This project will liaise with
the Transport Cluster.
This project will take into consideration the result of completed EC projects
FP7 GeoNet, InterSafe-II, PRE-DRIVE C2X. It will work closely with the EC
projects ecoMove and DRIVE C2X. The cooperation with the field trial project
DRIVE C2X is particularly important as it prepares and conducts Field-Operational
Tests (FOTs) on cooperative systems and is associated with various national
field test projects across Europe, such as simTD in Germany, SCOREF in France,
and also in Italy, Spain, Sweden and Finland.
How we do it:
will be carried out by an ETSI Specialist Task Force (STF) under the
responsibility of TC ITS.
The TC ITS
Chairman and TC ITS/WG 3 Chairman will monitor the progress of the day-to-day
work and no steering committee is planned other than the TC ITS plenary meetings
and the specific TC ITS/WG3 meetings.
will be undertaken both at joint meetings (mostly in Sophia Antipolis at ETSI
headquarters) and by teleconferences / Skype session support.
will be supported by a number of ETSI members who are prepared to voluntarily
contribute to the drafting of the technical report as well as performing reviews
of the STF deliverables for approval in the working group and technical body.
will report to ETSI TC ITS/WG3 (generally by conference call / e-mail but with
physical meetings being held in conjunction with some ETSI TC ITS/ WG3 meetings,
and, most importantly, ETSI TC ITS Plenary meetings).
In order to
achieve its goals, STF447 is equipped with the combined expertise on
and transport protocols, in particular ad hoc networking and specifically
- IEEE 802.11
standards and its ITS-specific extensions for DCC and multi-channel operation,
- Wireless and
mobile communication systems and protocols,
architecture and cross-layer optimization,
- General ITS
projects on cooperative ITS.
proposed action has two main deliverables:
- To produce
one base standard in the GeoNetworking standard series, i.e. the media-dependent
functionality of GeoNetworking for ITS-G5, ETSI TS 102 636-4-2.
- To analyze other standards of the Minimum Set of Standards in M/453, which have
interdependencies with the GeoNetworking standards series and develop
recommendations (change requests) in order to resolve the dependencies among
STF447, the following Work-Breakdown Structure applies:
