|Purpose of Slide:
Discuss the deployment plan.
|Transition: The connected vehicle program is moving toward
|Key Messages: NHTSA has mobilized staff from their policy, legal, and
rulemaking divisions to work with their research division and the ITS Joint
Program Office (JPO) staff to analyze the results of the research to date and
make a decision on how to move forward.
|In early February,
NHTSA announced that it would finalize its analysis of the data gathered as
part of its year-long pilot program and will publish a research report on V2V
communication technology for public comment in the coming weeks. The report
will include analysis of the department's research findings in several key
areas including technical feasibility, privacy and security, and preliminary
estimates on costs and safety benefits.
announced it would begin working on a regulatory proposal that would require
V2V devices in new vehicles in a future year, consistent with applicable
legal requirements, executive orders, and guidance. DOT believes that the
signal this announcement sends to the market will significantly enhance
development of this technology and pave the way for market penetration of V2V
|Policy research on
system security, privacy, governance, business models, and legal issues are
also front and center to the decision-making process. We are well on our way
for the safety research. Assuming a positive decision, this paves the way for
the rest of the program. As we look ahead, the department is planning a
significant investment in infrastructure-related research for safety,
mobility, environment, and weather.
|You will see
significant research in applications development. We are also working on the
enabling technology and FHWA is planning to develop infrastructure deployment
guidelines for State and local agencies.
for these efforts, we see an opportunity to build off the safety pilot and
conduct additional pilots to assess benefits and seed implementation. We are
currently in an open process to look at the opportunities and needs for a new
wave of connected vehicle pilots.
