ATA FILES V2V COMMENTS
On Oct. 20, ATA filed comments with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on its Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications for light vehicles. ATA supported a dedicated 5.9GHZ frequency band for the connected vehicle program and highway safety, and also supported minimum performance requirements for DSRC devices and GPS. ATA also recommended that GPS devices be flexible enough to allow for other applications to use the embedded system, such as ELDs, navigation systems, event data recorders, vehicle tracking, and computer based driver communication systems to other applications currently using separate GPS units. ATA expressed concern with the value of the V2V program given the long timeframe it will take to gain enough market penetration to provide for communications.
