DOT declares DSRC dead on arrival as a connected car-enabling communication protocol

September 19, 2018 | Case Study

In late 2017, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) decided not to pursue its vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) mandate proposal that had been under consideration for over a year and researched for the better part of a decade. The decision to drop the safety-focused connectivity mandate was a long time in the making, as the enabling communication protocol, DSRC/WAVE/802.11p, was on its way out, and there was a weak case for cellular/5G as the new protocol to enable the safety-critical applications that the DOT listed in the mandate, such as navigating through crowded intersections.
