Basic Safety Message Data Emulator

Metadata Updated: November 22, 2018

The Trajectory Conversion Algorithm Version 2.3 (TCA) is designed to test different strategies for producing, transmitting, and storing Connected Vehicle information. The TCA uses vehicle trajectory data, roadside equipment (RSE) location information, cellular region information and strategy information to emulate the messages connected vehicles would produce. This data set contains common data sets generated by the TCA using the BSM and PDM at 100% market penetration for two simulated traffic networks, an arterial network (Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco, CA) and a freeway network (the interchange of I-270 and I-44 in St. Louis, MO).

This legacy dataset was created before and is only currently available via the attached file(s). Please contact the dataset owner if there is a need for users to work with this data using the analysis features (online viewing, API, graphing, etc.) and the USDOT will consider modifying the dataset to fully integrate in
