Three New Reports Released on Connected Vehicle Policy
The Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office has released the following three research reports related to Connected Vehicle policy.
- American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Connected Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Analysis
This report describes a deployment scenario for Connected Vehicle infrastructure by state and local transportation agencies, together with a series of strategies and actions to be performed by AASHTO to support application development and deployment.
- An Approach to Communications Security for a Communications Data Delivery System for V2V/V2I Safety: Technical Description and Identification of Policy and Institutional Issues
This report identifies the security approach associated with a communications data delivery system that supports vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications. The report describes the risks associated with communications security and identifies approaches for addressing those risks. It also identifies and describes the policy and institutional issues that require focus in support of implementation and operations, as well as the balance needed among the priorities of security and safety with cost, privacy, enforcement, and other institutional issues.
- Connected Vehicle Environment: Governance Roundtable Proceedings from June 20, 2011
This report documents a governance roundtable discussion hosted by the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Joint Program Office (JPO) on June 20, 2011 at the U.S. DOT’s John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This discussion was organized as a first step towards establishing an ongoing process for developing a governance framework for the V2V/V2I Connected Vehicle environment. The objectives of the discussion were to: 1) gather information from experts on the topic of governance and how it is defined across different industries; 2) identify multiple approaches to evaluating and developing a governance structure or model; and 3) obtain guidance from roundtable experts and observers on a set of next steps. The roundtable was structured as a one-day forum that engaged six experts in a discussion of governance from a non-transportation perspective.
