Development and Performance Evaluation of a Connected Vehicle Application Development Platform (CVDeP)
Connected vehicle (CV) application developers need a development platform to build, test and debug real-world CV applications, such as safety, mobility, and environmental applications, in edge-centric cyber-physical systems. Our study objective is to develop and evaluate a scalable and secure CV application development platform (CVDeP) that enables application developers to build, test and debug CV applications in realtime. CVDeP ensures that the functional requirements of the CV applications meet the corresponding requirements imposed by the specific applications. We evaluated the efficacy of CVDeP using two CV applications (one safety and one mobility application) and validated them through a field experiment at the Clemson University Connected Vehicle Testbed (CU-CVT). Analyses prove the efficacy of CVDeP, which satisfies the functional requirements (i.e., latency and throughput) of a CV application while maintaining scalability and security of the platform and applications.
