Does the Car of the Future Require a "Talking Car" Mandate?
Please join the Competitive Enterprise Institute for a panel discussion on the federal government’s proposed vehicle-to-vehicle communications regulation and its implications on automotive innovation, safety, cybersecurity, and privacy.
In January 2017, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration proposed a rule to require new light-duty vehicles be installed with vehicle-to-vehicle communications (V2V) equipment. The proposed V2V rule would mandate the use of a communications protocol known as dedicated short-range communications (DSRC).
Supporters argue that V2V will provide drivers with advance hazard warning and reduce crash risk. They also claim a national mandate is the only way to ensure the potential safety benefits ever materialize in a timely fashion.
Critics have expressed concern over the potential negative effects on automotive innovation, particularly with respect to vehicle automation technology that offers far greater potential safety benefits. They also claim surrounding cybersecurity and privacy concerns have not been adequately resolved.
Lunch will be provided. Direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
