Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are distributed systems with different communicating parties which are vehicles with ITS-supporting On Board Units (OBUs), Road Side Units (RSU) and user mobile devices. These parties collectively run application services that are developed and managed by different application service providers by communicating among each other under certain timing constraints. In the current state of art, hardware, software and communications that are required to implement a given ITS application are all specifically re-designed for each application service. This thesis presents a system architecture named as Car Content Delivery (CarCoDe) for ITS application development complete with a software stack and communication specifications. CarCoDe is generic and can be used by all ITS parties by defining the relevant specific features. It provides a simple software stack and supports both short range and long range communications over a third node. Furthermore, CarCoDe has been attached with great importance to flexibility and modularity features which make it extendable for future contributions. The features of CarCode are demonstrated by a realization of it for a vehicle OBU and implementing an icy road warning application.
