U.S. To Allow Vehicle-to-Vehicle Safety Technology

Posted on February 7, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Transportation, or DOT along with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA, announced Monday that it will allow automobiles to become equipped with a new vehicle safety communication system called V2V. Using wireless sensors, V2V technology can track a car’s speed and position every ten seconds. Vehicles exchange this information with one another, which can alert drivers to a nearby vehicle, thereby preventing a potential crash.

The DOT and NHTSA will now enable vehicles to have V2V technology and could eventually require the system to be included in all new vehicles. The NHTSA will conduct a report on V2V effectiveness, privacy, security, and cost. Once the report is filed in the “coming weeks,” the organization will then develop proposals to regulate V2V technology, which would be “consistent with applicable legal requirements, Executive Orders, and guidance,” according to the statement.
