Webinar Alert: Focusing on Truck Wireless Communication Technologies – Hosts: TIMTC, U.S. DOT, Feb 23
Trucking industry stakeholders are invited to participate in a free webinar to discuss key policy and institutional challenges that could impact fleet adoption of new wireless communication technologies. The particular technologies being discussed include communication technologies that allow trucks to “talk” to other vehicles and roadside infrastructure. Through this webinar, motor carriers will be able to provide the U.S. DOT with direct feedback on technology implementation issues.
Presentations will include 1) a brief introduction on the U.S. DOT’s Truck Technology Policy program of research; 2) an overview of the potential value of the wireless connectivity technologies to the trucking industry and 3) a summary of related policy issues identified to date. Feedback gathered from participants will be used to develop the Truck V2V/V2I Policy Roadmap and Research Agenda.
