SAE International Lauds NHTSA Announcement on Vehicle-to-Vehicle Technology for Light Vehicles

WARRENDALE, Pa., Feb. 3, 2014 - SAE International’s technical expert community welcomes and supports today's announcement by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it will begin taking steps to enable vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication technology for light vehicles.

SAE International has worked closely with government and global industry in the development of vehicle communication specifications for more than 20 years resulting in the publication of multiple standards and recommended practices.

A new version of the SAE International standard, J2735 "Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) Message Set Dictionary”, is being finalized to support the 3-regions (USA, Europe, Japan) common message format effort. This will be followed by SAE J2945 “Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) Minimum Performance Requirements”.

"The announcement by NHTSA provides a clear path for the mobility industry to follow and creates opportunities for many players to innovate. To be efficient, safe and cost effective this approach requires a solid foundation, namely standards. We call on the technical experts to participate in SAE standards development to create the future of connected mobility" said Jack Pokrzywa, Manager, SAE International Global Ground Vehicle Standards.
