5.9 GHz technology has been selected by the United States Department of Transportation Intelligent Transportation System Joint Program Office to provide vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadside communications. 5.9 GHz based truck safety projects have demonstrated the benefits for safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly truck screening.
Kapsch TrafficCom has been at the forefront of efforts to commercialize this technology and was a lead contributor to the completion of the now-published standards. HELP’s announcement lends further credence to the commercial viability of this enabling technology.
