The New “Grand Challenge” - Deploying Vehicle Communications

Raymond Resendes, Chief, Intelligent Technologies Research Division, US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

Abstract: A new generation of sensing and warning systems has emerged that demonstrate the ability to help drivers avoid crashes.  NHTSA has conducted cooperative research with the automotive industry that shows that the overall effectiveness of such systems may be improved by using inter-vehicle communications.  NHTSA believes that there exists an opportunity to facilitate the accelerated deployment of these systems.  Further, NHTSA envisions that crash avoidance systems can develop into an integrated safety concept that avoids and mitigates crashes as well as improves post crash response.  While safety is NHTSA’s goal, it is widely understood that V2X systems will ultimately need to support safety, mobility and convenience applications in order to be commercially viable.  This presentation will cover the status of V2X in the U.S., a scenario for deployment where V2V takes the lead, and finally what are the greatest technical challenges to achieving deployment.

Biography: In March 2005, Ray Resendes became Chief of the Intelligent Technologies Research Division in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).   In this capacity he leads the Agency’s efforts to develop new technologies, procedures, and methods to advance the state-of-art in active safety systems.  This encompasses management of NHTSA’s ITS activities which promote the development and evaluation of new technologies. In addition, he leads the Advanced Collision Avoidance Technologies Program (ACAT), which is developing the benefit information and evaluation methodologies needed to promote consumer awareness of effective advanced safety technologies.  Before coming to NHTSA, Ray led vehicle safety research at the USDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO).  He served as the Program Manager for the USDOT Intelligent Vehicle Initiative.  In this capacity, he led a multimodal team that conducted essential research for the application of advanced technologies to active safety systems.  The major accomplishments of this program included completion of nine field operational tests that documented the safety benefits of advanced collision avoidance systems. And the 100-car Naturalistic Driving Study, which developed a new understanding of driver behavior and reactions that lead to crash situations.  Under his leadership the IVI Program also developed the first Dedicated Short Range Communication Systems (DSRC) that enabled the application of vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications for safety.
