Vehicle path information sent by a vehicle that is violating the stop bar at an intersection. This flow includes the vehicle's position, heading, speed, acceleration, transmission, steering–wheel angle, braking status, size information and trajectory.
intersection safety warning (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
A warning of an imminent unsafe vehicle infringement at an intersection that may endanger other vehicles or pedestrians. This allows vehicles approaching the intersection to be warned in the event of an imminent red light or stop sign violation or potential infringement on an occupied crosswalk. All connected vehicles at the intersection receive the warning, including both the infringing vehicle and other vehicles at or near the intersection.
intersection status (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

This flow identifies active lanes and lanes that are being stopped and specifies the length of time that the current state will persist for each lane. It also identifies signal priority and preemption status and pedestrian crossing status information where applicable.
ITS information (Planned )
Information exchanged by ITS systems or devices. This flow is a super–flow; it does not define specific content since it represents any information flow exchange between physical objects defined in ARC–IT. This information flow represents any of those information flows and inherits the data content and attributes defined in the more detailed information flows.

The advisories may include advisories that are issued by the RSE based on locally collected environmental data (e.g., an ice on bridge advisory).
roadway geometry (Planned ) Applicable ITS Standards
The physical geometry of a road segment that specifies the location and width of each lane, including normal lanes as well as special lanes for pedestrians and bicycles, transit vehicles, and trains. This flow also may include the curvature, grade, and superelevation or banking of the road segment.
service advertisement (Planned ) Applicable ITS Standards
An advertisement of available services and identification of how those services may be accessed (e.g., RF parameters, identifiers, etc.). Services include network services such as IPv6 routing, public roadside services such as intersection safety, back office services including situation data services and security credentials, or private services.

Measured gap to the next approaching vehicle per lane and direction of travel
vehicle control event (Planned ) Applicable ITS Standards
Notification that the vehicle has performed an emergency action that could impact the safety of surrounding vehicles. This includes hard braking and activation of traction/stability control systems or other actions that warrant immediate notification of surrounding vehicles.
