OMB Approves NHTSA V2V Communications ANPRM

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had approved the DOT’s National Highway Transportation Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) advanced notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) on establishing a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) for vehicle to vehicle (V2V) communications.

This rulemaking was not included in the Spring Unified Agenda so it isn’t clear exactly what this rulemaking would encompass, but I suspect that it is related to the DOT’s Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office’s (ITSJPO) connected vehicle program. I last mentioned this program back in February. I expect that we will find out more details when the ANPRM is published, probably next week.
