December 7, 2018 – Three years and two days after the enactment of the FAST Act, the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine released their study of the future of the Interstate Highway System commissioned by section 6021 of that law.
September 26, 2018 – A panel of transportation and short-range communications experts argued this week that DSRC technology exists now and can provide safety benefits, and therefore should be implemented as soon and as ubiquitously as possible.
When it comes to short-range, direct V2V and V2I communication specifically for collision avoidance and other related safety purposes, DSRC is the only communication technology that is ready for prime time.
The realities of deployment feasibility, lower barriers to necessary infrastructure build-out, lower cost and a clear technical pathway forward demonstrate the argument for allowing C-V2X in the 5.9 GHz band so consumers can realize these advantages as soon as possible.
This week, we have two perspectives from professionals representing leading global automobile manufacturers that have taken two different approaches to connected vehicle tech.
As technology becomes increasingly coupled with personal and commercial vehicles, cyber security concerns have increased among the general public, OEMs, and policy makers. On July 24th, The Wilson Center brought together experts in the field for a panel on Security and The Connected Vehicle, which covered connected vehicle (CV) and automated vehicle (AV) cyber security. The event highlighted the lack of preparedness of the auto industry to protect against cyber attacks, the inevitable insecurity of AV technology, and the importance of maintaining focus on this critical element of new mobility options.
March 22, 2018 – Surface transportation safety programs received significant funding increases in the fiscal 2018 omnibus appropriations legislation released yesterday, with much of the money devoted to a new DOT-wide autonomous vehicles R&D program.

February 17, 2017 – At a February 14 hearing before House Energy & Commerce’s newly-minted Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection Subcommittee, automakers and Lyft made an impassioned appeal to Congress:
Be our valentine.
At Eno’s Capital Convergence conference, held last month, one of the sessions examined the impact that existing and imminent new technologies will have on the freight sector.
Smart transportation technologies, including ridesharing, automated, and connected vehicles, must be incorporated into cities in a way that complements our existing transportation system.
January 25, 2017 – On January 19, the last full day of Secretary Foxx’s tenure, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) checked the last item off of its list with the release of its vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) deployment guidance.
December 16, 2016 Even as the Obama Administration prepares to close up shop next month, the U.S. Department of Transportation is continuing its mission to drive innovation in the transportation sector with globally unprecedented actions.
A substantial shift in transportation options is emerging, with various technologies advancing to market for connected and highly automated vehicles (C/AVs). Our nation’s $1,000 per capita annual crash costs may plummet – as technologists and manufacturers work hard to publicly deliver communicating and self-driving vehicles.
