On December 26, 2018 (83 FR 66338), the Department of Transportation (DOT) published a notice in the federal register requesting comment about recent developments in V2X technologies (“V2X” includes vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P) communications). In particular, the Office of the Secretary (OST) wants to hear from stakeholders, and the public generally, whether focusing on Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) as the primary means of V2V communications is consistent with recent technological developments, as well as with OST DOT’s general desire to remain technologically neutral and avoid interfering with the many innovations in transportation and telecommunication technologies. If technological developments support the use of alternatives to DSRC, the OST DOT would also need to know how to ensure that these alternative technologies are interoperable with each other and DSRC. This notice requests comment on how these developments impact both V2X in general and OST DOT’s role in encouraging the integration of V2X. Please submit your comments by January 25, 2019. Note: DOT extended the comment period [February 13, 2019 (84 FR 3850)] to February 25, 2019.
