Application: Communication method, vehicle-to-everything platform, on-board unit and storage medium (Patent ID: US20240073281A1)

The patent application by ZTE Corp. describes a communication method for a vehicle-to-everything (V2X) platform, involving determining the operating state of a road side unit (RSU) using long-distance communication interfaces, establishing communication connections with on-board units (OBU) via short-distance communication interfaces, and issuing V2X information accordingly. The method also includes receiving safety messages, adjusting information based on these messages, and stopping V2X information issuance when the RSU returns to normal or communication restoration information is received.

Furthermore, the patent application details a communication method for OBUs in vehicles, which involves determining the RSU's operating state, transmitting V2X information to the RSU or V2X platform based on the RSU's status, and reporting vehicle information to the V2X platform. The method also covers scenarios where the RSU returns to normal, communication restoration information is reported, or the vehicle approaches another RSU. Additionally, the patent includes claims for a V2X platform, an OBU, and a computer-readable storage medium storing the communication program for implementation.
