Government wants to accelerate self-driving vehicle technology

Obama Administration doesn't want to stand in the way of autonomous vehicles

The Obama Administration understands autonomous vehicles are right around the corner, and wants to embrace the technological change. As part of the government's plans, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication will be a requirement, with other requirements now being worked out.

In regards to V2V, DOT is working with the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) to help expand testing for the V2V-reserved 5.9GHz spectrum. There will also be more communication regarding the national framework, as automakers and Silicon Valley push forward with self-driving car testing.

"The Department wants to speed the nation toward an era when vehicle safety isn't just about surviving crashes; it's about avoiding them," said Anthony Foxx, Department of Transportation (DOT) Secretary, in a public statement at Delphi Labs. "Connected, automated vehicles that can sense the environment around them and communicate with other vehicles and with infrastructure have the potential to revolutionize road safety and save thousands of lives."
