Review of USDOT Report on Connected
Vehicle Initiative Communications Systems Deployment
As required in Section 53006 of P.L. 112-141 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century, July 6, 2012), a National Research Council committee shall conduct a peer review of a report by the U.S. Department of Transportation on vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications system deployment. The study committee will assess whether the USDOT report addresses the charge set forth by Congress in Section 53006 to:
(1) assess the status of dedicated short-range communications technology and applications developed through research and development;
(2) analyze the known and potential gaps in short-range communications technology and applications;
(3) define a recommended implementation path for dedicated short-range communications technology and applications that
a) is based on the assessment described in paragraph 1; and
b) takes into account the analysis described in paragraph 2;
(4) include guidance on the relationship of the proposed deployment of dedicated short-range communications to the National ITS Architecture and ITS Standards; and
(5) ensure competition by not preferencing the use of any particular frequency for vehicle to infrastructure operations.
The approximate start date for the project (contract) is September 2014.
The project is sponsored by the Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office, U.S. Department of Transportation.
A letter report is expected to be issued at the end of March 2015.
