Consortium Forms to Establish Standards for Highway of the Future


Indus­try and gov­ern­ment are coop­er­at­ing in an effort to estab­lish stan­dards and pro­to­cols for future super-safe road­ways. The goal of the Vehi­cle Infra­struc­ture Inte­gra­tion Con­sor­tium is the estab­lish­ment of a nation­wide com­mu­ni­ca­tions net­work that includes roads, inter­sec­tions and vehi­cles. How­ev­er, legal lia­bil­i­ty and pri­va­cy issues present obsta­cles to be resolved.
