Standards Development in the New Vehicle Communications Environment 2006-21-0018

The new vehicle connectivity model focuses on data communications and vehicle safety applications, as opposed to the traditional telematics model, which emphasizes entertainment- and revenue-centered applications. As a result, telematics is moving toward becoming a basic safety service offered by vehicle manufacturers. In this new vehicle communications environment, safety information must be shared among all equipped vehicles.
