Popular Mechanics on Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications

Popular Mechanics‘ “buzzword” this week is Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications technologies, touting its safety benefits, open DSRC communication protocol, low cost to implement, and commitment by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to integrate similar technologies into roadway infrastructure (allowing Vehicle-to-Infrastructure Communication).

The brief article notes “There will probably also be privacy concerns.” Yep, and you can read my article on how the design and implementation of Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure Safety Communication technologies threaten the contextual integrity of personal information flows as we drive along the highways.

(FWIW, Popular Science covered VSC about 18 months ago.)
