Telematics Update is hosting this exclusive webinar tomorrow (February 27, 12pm EST) that will bring together leading industry experts to address the issue of certification and regulation for V2V technologies.
The three speakers will provide the perspectives of federal and state governments, as well as automakers; the main contenders for regulatory authority and responsibility.
The webinar comes at an exciting time for the vehicle communications industry, as this month saw the much anticipated NHTSA announcement regarding a government enforced mandate in new vehicle for DSRC equipment. After their Ann Arbor Safety Pilot found that the communications significantly decrease the number of collisions on the road, and the first steps in policy-making to accommodate and nurture these systems has begun. With uncertainty as to timelines, who will be leading this regulatory process and certifying the tech. and how deployment will be shaped, this webinar will undoubtedly provide thought provoking ideas for the future.
