National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced it would begin working on a regulatory proposal that would require Connected Vehicle (CV) devices in new vehicles in a future year, consistent with applicable legal requirements, executive orders, and guidance. DOT believes that the signal this announcement sends to the market will significantly enhance development of this technology and pave the way for market penetration of V2V safety applications. In a connected vehicles environment, diagnostic sensors are installed on every vehicle to collect data and data are being transmitted wirelessly between vehicles and nearby infrastructures. It would no longer have to rely on conventional data collection equipment, like loop detector or video detections, and it collects much more information than the conventional ways. Measurements that are previously unknown are now available, which include but not be limited to: vehicle speeds, positions, arrival rates, rates of acceleration and deceleration, queue lengths, stopped time and so on. As we look ahead, we see opportunities to build off CV environment to assess benefits and seed implementation.
