Telematics Update: NHTSA Announcement to Cause Vehicle Communications Market Explosion

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) (PRWEB) February 10, 2014 The much-anticipated announcement will no doubt be welcomed by the automotive safety industry that has been waiting for a signal to stride ahead with these advanced communications technologies. The announcement details the next steps for NHTSA and their intentions to mandate the technology with the power to save lives on the roads.

David McNamara, president of McNamara Technology Solutions, a consulting expert on active safety and wireless technology, noted the positive message in the announcement saying: ‘This is indeed encouraging. Since 2003 I have followed and participated in the development of DSRC and these important safety and mobility apps. The key statement is that "NHTSA will then begin working on a regulatory proposal that would require V2V devices in new vehicles in a future year, consistent with applicable legal requirements, Executive Orders, and guidance."...In my opinion the key word in the statement is "require V2V devices". Like all policy and regulatory action the "devil will be in the details", and it will be important to see at what pace in which the details are made know to us.’ With regulation now clearly on the horizon it is time to prepare your strategy for this rapidly expanding market. Telematics Update’s Advanced Automotive Safety USA 2014 (July 8-9, 2014, Novi, Michigan) conference will provide all the knowledge and insight to enable you to capitalize on this inevitable explosion of industry activity.
