About the Seminar

This seminar whighlighted important technical aspects and developmental stages of dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) or connected vehicle technology. The presentation then explained what DSRC is and why it is a better choice than other competing wireless technologies to enable future-generation traffic safety and mobility applications. The seminar also explored how the USDOT and car manufacturers envision the future of DSRC technology. 

The various applications of DSRC were also highlighted, with a focus on how the technology can be instrumental in saving lives by reducing crashes and how it could help optimize traffic flow. Furthermore, the role of DSRC technology in enabling future-generation vehicle automation was explored. Various deployment hurdles such as privacy and security issues were also discussed.
