    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.
    NEW: There is currently the NHTSA Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM {ITSA Summary of Vehicle to Vehicle Communications ANPRM and Readiness Report Sept 2014.pdf} ) is at the the White House for review until mid May 2016 . A V2V Fact Sheet provided to the White House is posted here {ITS America Fact Sheet White House Review of V2V Rulemaking April 2016 for Docket.pdf} . A letter to the President from a consortium of companies suggesting DSRC is not an important technology {Big Tent Letter on 5.9 for White House final.pdf} and that it does not deserve the consideration it is currently provided in FCC rules and proposed rulemaking, despite the universal support it has from auto industry and road operators.
    If you want to make your views heard on the OMB review of the NHTSA NPRM, here are some instructions to how to engage OMB on rulemakings before them..

    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.

    NEW! White House Announces Intention to proceed with V2V Rulemaking - See press release {RDH Press Release Federal Automated Vehicles Policy and V2V 09202016 with JG edits.pdf}
    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM)in August of 2014. This ANPRM suggests the USDOT may mandate DSRC in vehicles. The ANPRM seeks comments on USDOT research (Safety Pilot) conducted to date and on key regulatory questions.
    Here is a high level overview of ITS America's Advocacy in the area of Connected Vehicle. A 2010 NHTSA study documenting the crash types that V2X may prevent. The study concludes that combined V2V and V2I systems potentially address about 4,503,000 Police Reported or 81 percent of all-vehicle target crashes. Here is the NHTSA study of the major research initiative, a large scale test of V2X know as the Safety Pilot, conducted by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute in cooperation with a number of automakers and ITS equipment and service providers.
    Leadership of the Connected Vehicle Task Force: Chair Roger Berg, Vice President DENSO and Vice Chair Chris Poe, Assistant Director, Texas Transportation Institute - See press release
    Task Force Mission and VisionCV Task Force Mission and Vision
    The vision of the ITS America Connected Vehicle Task Force is deployment of a nationally interoperable, wireless communications system that transforms the way vehicles interact with each other and our highway network. The program focuses primarily on future use of the Dedicated Short Range Communications, a service described by the Federal Communications Commission. ITS America petitioned the FCC for spectrum devoted to this service in 1997. (see FCC Docket on DSRC).
