Dear EC Members,
I would like to announce the start of an EC ballot to the US DoT Request for Comments on
V2X. More specifically; recently, there have been developments in core aspects of the communication technologies that could be associated with V2X. This notice requests comment on how these developments impact both V2X in general and the Department’s role
in encouraging the integration of V2X. The deadline for comments is 25 February 2019.
Paul has delegated to me to conduct an EC 5 day early close electronic ballot on the motion below. To ensure this motion is decided
early enough to allow for the deadline, I'm requesting an 'early close' to this ballot (see below).

Over the past several years, the Department of Transportation and its operating administrations have engaged in numerous activities related to connected vehicles, including vehicle-to-vehicle
(V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P) communications, collectively referred to as “V2X” communications. Recently, there have been developments in core aspects of the communication technologies that could be associated with
V2X. This notice requests comment on how these developments impact both V2X in general and the Department’s role in encouraging the integration of V2X.
