Okay, vehicle control system security is a bit of a stretch for a chemical facility security blog, but it is my blog. Today the DOT’s Intelligent Transportation System Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) published a meeting notice in the Federal Register (79 FR 6985) announcing a public workshop to discuss candidate Connected Vehicle (CV) interfaces for standardization.
This program has always seemed to be a little futuristic and a tad bit out-there, but it is becoming obvious that this technology is quickly moving out of the Popular Science technology of the future realm into the real world. This is particularly true with yesterday’s DOT announcement of its intention to move forward with establishing vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications standards as a means to reduce accidents.
The free Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture (CVRIA) public workshop will be held on February 19th and 20th in San Francisco, CA. Advanced registration is encouraged as registrants will receive a preliminary draft plan in advance of the workshop.
