Status of the Dedicated Short-Range Communications Technology and Applications: Report to Congress

DSRC is a Wi-Fi derivative technology developed to meet specialized needs for secure, low latency, wireless mobile data communications. DSRC has proven the ability to provide all of the critical attributes needed to support Connected Vehicle safety applications. This report provides an assessment of the status of DSRC technology and applications, including known and potential gaps; describes a recommended implementation path; and discusses opportunities to use commercially available communications for Connected Vehicle applications under specific circumstances. The assessment is predominantly derived from U.S Department of Transportation research, analysis, and deployment planning that has been performed in partnership with stakeholders and industry experts over the last decade.
