Talking Cars, 5G, and Wi-Fi: Time to Get More Mileage from the Car Band
The Obama Administration’s proposal to mandate a vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication system in all new cars is reportedly on life support at the more deregulatory Trump Department of Transportation (DOT). A V2V signaling mandate has been criticized as outdated, costly, and lengthy; it could take 20 years or more to become fully effective.
Speakers will provide updates on this debate, including the trajectory of auto safety technologies and why extending the adjacent unlicensed spectrum band into 5.9 GHz is key to creating the “wider pipe” required for gigabit Wi-Fi networks.
