SAE DSRC Implementation Guidelines
SAE J2735 Standard 2009

"..Those vendors/products that pass DOT’s device certification testing will be placed on a Qualified Product List (QPL) and be eligible for supporting the upcoming IntelliDrive Safety Pilot model deployment which will involve approximately 2500-3000 vehicles. The devices will be used for identifying vehicle location, trajectory, and speed using the SAE J2735 basic safety message; messages will not include any personally identifiable information."

COMMENTS: All manufacters, with one exception, use the same chipset. Only difference is in the software stack. Lack of chipsets shows that mainstream silicon houses have not committed to DSRC







FCC Docket on Dedicated Short Range Communications


Vehicle and Infrastructure - Dedicated Short Range Communications - (DSRC) on the FCC Docket


ITS America originally petition the Congress and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for the spectrum allocation for DSRC, and has worked with the FCC on establishing technical and service rules on behalf of industry and the (non-federal) public sector, with support from, or in coordination with, the US Department Transportation (USDOT). Here is the record of policy and rulemaking activities over the last number of years.

Current FCC Rulemaking Activity


Policymakers have begun exploring areas of underutilized spectrum that could be opened up to help alleviate the looming spectrum shortage. The Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) National Broadband Plan of 2010 identified the need to make 500 megahertz of spectrum newly available for broadband within 10 years, of which 300 megahertz should be made available for mobile use within five years. In the plan, The FCC recommend that within the next 10 years, should free up a new, contiguous nationwide band for unlicensed use.

Following these recommendations, the U.S. Congress last year passed the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act, which among other things directed the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to examine the potential for spectrum sharing in the 5.4 GHz and 5.9 GHz bands. The law asked NTIA to evaluate “known and proposed spectrum-sharing technologies” and the potential risks if unlicensed devices are permitted to operate in that band.

On January 25, 2013, the NTIA issued its initial report on the potential use of up to 195 megahertz of spectrum in the 5 GHz band by Unlicensed-National Information Infrastructure (U-NII) devices. The report expressed concern about the potential risks associated with introducing a substantial number of new, unlicensed devices into the 5.9 GHz band without proper safeguards, and agreed with concerns expressed by ITS America and our partners that further analysis is needed to determine whether and how the multiple risk factors could be mitigated.

FCC opened a Notice of Proposed Rule making (NPRM) on February 20, 2012 - In the Matter of Revision of Part 15 of the Commission’s Rules to Permit Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (U-NII) Devices in the 5 GHz Band (ET Docket No. 13-49)

Department of Commerce NTIA Study on Unlicensed Use of 5.9GHz


On February 16, 2012 a conference bill report designated HR 3630 in Section 6406 (pp. 197-199) calls for the FCC to modify its rules to permit unlicensed devices in the 5350-5470 MHz band after an Department of Commerce NTIA study and certain conditions are met, as described below.
Specifically:

Subsection (b)(1): NTIA to conduct a study “evaluating known and proposed spectrum-sharing techniques and the risk to Federal users if unlicensed U-NII devices were allowed to operate in the … 5850-5925 MHz band.” Subsection (b)(2)(B): NTIA report to be submitted to FCC, Congress, DOT “not later than 18 months after the date of the enactment of this Act … with respect to the 5850-5925 MHz band.” Also note Subsection (a)(1) and (2) – Modification of FCC’s rules to permit unlicensed use in 5350-5470 MHz band may be made if the FCC, determines that – “(A) licensed users will be protected by technical solutions, including use of existing, modified, or new spectrum-sharing technologies, such as dynamic frequency selection; and (B) the primary mission of Federal spectrum users in the 5350-5470 MHz band will not be compromised by the introduction of unlicensed devices.”

Timeline for completion of NTIA study would be approximately June of 2013

2011 Overview Congressional Action on DSRC and Unlicensed Use



U.S. Congress Examines 5.9 GHz Spectrum – Implications for DSRC - Presentation by the Connected Vehicle Task Force ITS America’s webinar series on Wednesday, September 14 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern - US Congress Examines 5.9 GHz Spectrum: Implications for DSRC. The presentation will be led by Bob Kelly and Mark D. Johnson, experienced ITS and telecommunications attorneys with the law firm of Squire, Sanders & Dempsey (US) LLP in Washington, D.C. Kelly and Johnson will cover the latest on current bills in the U.S. Congress that threaten to alter the licensing and use allocation of the 5.9 GHz Band (5.850 - 5.925 GHz) currently allocated for Vehicle Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC). If enacted, the bills would open up the 5.9 GHz Band to a variety of new unlicensed uses, likely compromising the ability of DSRC to deliver critical safety and mobility services such as vehicle collision avoidance and tolling. See the presentation and the recording of the webinar!

2003 Dedicated Short Range Communications


On December 17, 2003 the Commission adopted a Report and Order establishing licensing and service rules for the Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) Service in the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Radio Service in the 5.850-5.925 GHz band (5.9 GHz band). The DSRC Service involves vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications, helping to protect the safety of the traveling public.


Policy History - 1997 - 2011


On May 19, 1997, the Intelligent Transportation Society of America (‘‘ITS America’’) filed a Petition for Rulemaking (‘‘Petition’’) requesting that the Commission allocate 75 megahertz of spectrum in the 5.850–5.925 GHz band on a co-primary basis for DSRC based ITS services.

5. In Sept. 2004, ARINC filed a petition for reconsideration regarding certain structural and technical issues adopted by the FCC, including a request to implement a “spectrum manager” to assist with siting of DSRC stations to avoid potential interference from co-primary Fixed Satellite Service operations. Other requested changes included designating Channel 172 for low-latency, high availability vehicle-to-vehicle safety communications and Channel 184 for higher-power, longer-range public safety communications. ITS America filed a separate petition regarding DSRC site registration and designation of Channel 172 for low latency, vehicle-to-vehicle safety commentations.
