DOT Issues Proposed Rule on Connected Vehicles

In an effort to reduce crashes on U.S. roadways, the U.S. Department of Transportation issued a proposed rule on Dec. 13, that would advance the deployment of connected vehicle technologies.

The proposed rule would “require all new light vehicles to be capable of Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communications, such that they will send and receive Basic Safety Messages to and from other vehicles.” The proposal contains requirements for V2V communication in relation to vehicle’s speed, heading, brake status and more. It also requires all V2V devices to “speak the same language.”

“We are carrying the ball as far as we can to realize the potential of transportation technology to save lives,” said Anthony Foxx, U.S. Transportation Secretary. “This long promised V2V rule is the next step in that progression. Once deployed, V2V will provide 360-degree situational awareness on the road and will help us enhance vehicle safety.”

Separately, the Department’s Federal Highway Administration plans to soon issue guidance for Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications, which will help transportation planners integrate the technologies to allow vehicles to “talk” to roadway infrastructure.

NHTSA estimates that safety applications enabled by V2V and V2I could eliminate or mitigate the severity of up to 80% of non-impaired crashes, including crashes at intersections or while changing lanes.
