Welcome to Technocracy: V2V – Leave the driving to US!

The Federal Government is planning to implement legislation dubbed V2V – Connected Vehicle Communications to be mandated on all private and commercial vehicles. This legislation effectively asks citizens to “leave the driving to us” under one of the last bastions of personal freedom – individual mobility. The US DOT secretary, Anthony Foxx stated earlier this year the planning and implementation program was a year ahead of schedule.  V2V & V2I…another brick in the wall.

On September 1, 2016, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) awarded three cooperative agreements collectively worth more than $45 million to initiate a Design/Build/Test phase of the Connected Vehicle (CV) Pilot Deployment Program in three sites: Wyoming, New York City (NYC), and Tampa.

Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office announced that these technologies are designed to save lives, improve personal mobility, enhance economic productivity, reduce environmental impacts, and transform public agency operations. Over the past 12 months, each site has prepared a comprehensive deployment concept to ensure a rapid and efficient connected vehicle capability roll-out. Now the three sites will embark on a new 20-month phase to design, build, and test the nation’s most complex and extensive deployment of integrated wireless in-vehicle, mobile device, and roadside technologies.

  1. Q:
    1. Can hackers use V2V to track & steal cars ?
    2. Can the police use it to gauge driving & issue infringements ?
    3. Are there 100% guarantees that the system will not scramble or crash causing mayhem ?
    I still have not got an understanding of how this complex inter-communicational system will work .. be back soon.

  2. “Event based communication” the car in front of a truck is slowing down .. that car will send out a message to the cars behind the truck that it is slowing down to stop .. [ this will be equal to the driver talking on the phone while driving / worse watching TV while driving ] ..
    Thee is nothing to stop purpose written software to tap into your vehicles receptor & miss direct one or more car’s to a desired end.
    Example .. President Barack Obama & his cavalcade of 10 cars are traveling from one destination to another .. all the while being watched & guided into a massive. stationary truck full of incendiary devices.
    Good thinking Mr. President .. you are on a real winner here.

    The inspiration for V2V .. a generation of Herbie’s.

    Remember being a kid & pushing your big brother down the street in the billy cart ?
    Magna Steyr Mila 1 .. a little yellow/orange .. one seater .. sports car.
    The billy cart for the boy in you.
    I emailed Holden & asked if they would make me one.
    The rang me ..
