Accessible & Barrier Free Research: Executive Summary

Automated Vehicles

In the past, automotive safety technologies focused on protecting drivers and passengers after a crash. Technology is evolving to the point that crashes can be largely prevented. Automated vehicle technology can drastically reduce and potentially eliminate the 94 percent of crashes caused by human error.

Connected Transportation

ITS America members are actively developing and deploying vehicle to everything (V2X) technologies, which send hazard alerts to vehicles, bicyclists, pedestrians, and traffic lights. These technologies also can enhance automated driving systems, which hold the promise to provide numerous economic, environmental, and societal benefits, such as decreased congestion and fuel consumption, and increased access for the elderly and disabled. These safety innovations require dedicated spectrum to ensure they work every time without signal interference.

Cybersecurity

ITS America is raising the profile of discussions on intelligent mobility cybersecurity; promoting the adoption of best practices and standards; supporting information sharing of threats faced by those developing, operating, or managing smart transportation technologies; and advocating for public policies that enhance cybersecurity readiness.

Top Safety Priorities

  • Preserving the 5.9 GHz spectrum for V2X communications can help address the scourge of lives lost and ruined on U.S. roads.
