An Industry Review of Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications

In an effort to make our roads and vehicles smarter and safer, the FCC allocated an allotment of 75 MHz of spectrum in 5.9 GHz for Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC), intended for use in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The objective is the ability of Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-roadside communications (in combination referred to as V2X), enabling a range of features to warn drivers of upcoming dangers.

The US Government, system manufacturers and car manufacturers have been collaborating for many years to develop standards for communications, which efforts have been concentrated within IEEE 802.11p and IEEE 1609. Progress is reflected in various field trial deployments around the country.

In our upcoming event, we will review wireless technologies and standards for V2X communications, trials and other developments to date, and expectations of Intelligent Transportation Systems in the future, providing both a system manufacturer and car manufacturer perspective.
