NHTSA Connected Vehicle Clinics wrap up in California

25 January 2012 IHS Markit Automotive Expert

NHTSA wrapped up their Connected Vehicle Safety Pilot Program in California this month, concluding a five month, six city consumer research initiative that assessed driver acceptance of connected vehicle technology. The drivers response to the new connected vehicle technology has been well-received according to Ray Resendes from the U.S. Department of Transportation, who also attended the Summit on the State of the Connected Vehicle hosted by the Connected Vehicle Trade Association last week. Mr. Resendes provided the summit with an early glimpse of the pilot results and said the overall response from drivers was very positive to the new connected vehicle technologies. These early results build optimism for the next phase of the pilot program, which includes a Safety Pilot Model Deployment that kicks off in Ann Arbor, Michigan in August.

The full scope of NHTSA's research is laid out in Vehicle Safety and Fuel Economy Rule making and Research Priority Plan of 2011-2013. With participation from eight major OEMs, NHTSA's research is building to a 2013 decision on whether to proceed with additional vehicle-to-vehicle communications or possible rulemaking.
