Over the past several years, the U.S. DOT and its operating administrations have engaged in numerous activities related to connected vehicles, which generally encompass vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P) communications, collectively known as “V2X.” These activities are based on the Department’s view that V2X technologies have the potential for significant transportation safety and mobility benefits, both on their own and as complementary technologies when combined with in-vehicle sensors supporting the integration of automated vehicles and other innovative applications. DOT issued a request for comments to solicit comment and feedback V2X Communications in Federal Register Notice. Please provide your feedback in Docket No. DOT-OST-2018-0210 - Docket Comment Period Closes on January 25, 2019.
Because of the government shutdown, the Department is unable to extend the comment deadline on the V2X RFC as a formal matter; however, in light of the shutdown and in light of the fact that the comment period for this RFC has overlapped with the holidays, the Department intends to consider all comments that are submitted within 30 calendar days following expiration of the comment period.
