Development and implementation of a standardized, secure freight/ hazardous materials electronic manifest system. c. Continuous automated safety monitoring with periodic reporting via broadband wireless, without the use of roadside inspection stations. d. Cross-agency access to standardized vehicle and operator data for enhanced data sharing and improved mission effectiveness. 8. How might a future commercial broadband service address connected vehicle applications: (http:// www.its.dot.gov/connected_vehicle/ connected_vehicle_apps.htm), and what action could the USDOT take to ensure that industry addresses these requirements? For example: a. What is required from a commercial broadband service in terms of reliability and resilience to ensure it would be available during emergencies and disasters to support transportation services? b. What technologies such as mesh or ad-hoc networking or innovative use of relays, femtocells (which are small base stations attached to a fixed broadband connection), or Wi-Fi access points could be used to demonstrate an increase in network resilience for transportation applications? c. What such applications, technologies and techniques might be prototyped and tested in a ‘‘living laboratory’’ over the next five years? 9. Security standards may need to incorporate techniques to provide anonymity and defeat tracking attempts against individual drivers when using connected vehicle applications or global positioning systems (GPS). Commercial broadband networks are designed to provide location information for emergency response (E911 and NG911) and are increasingly implementing applications using location-based services that specifically track user and/ or vehicle locations. These features might limit the suitability of commercial broadband networks for some applications, especially those that may be potentially mandatory and/or government-sponsored a. What types of ITS applications, especially those that may be potentially mandatory or government-sponsored, might make use of commercial broadband networks? b. What policy initiatives and possible technical features will need to be implemented to assure users that their privacy is protected regardless of which communications network (or networks) is used? 10. What actions should the USDOT take, either from a technical or policy VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:49 May 11, 2011 Jkt 223001 perspective, to encourage development of integrated, multi-platform wireless devices (e.g. Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC)/4G) for vehicles, mobile devices, and roadside equipment? 11. What other broadband technologies or applications would provide substantial public benefits and testing or deployment of which would be accelerated by WIN funding? 12. Security standards for vehicle-tovehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications may require techniques for authenticating messages, including verifying the authority to send various classes of messages and the source of the messages. They may also include techniques to encrypt messages if needed. a. What transportation applications might require such security features when implemented on commercial networks, and what attributes might the applications require (for example, authentication, data integrity, nonrepudiation, etc.)? b. Could widespread broadband wireless capability be leveraged to address the security requirements transportation and/or other nontransportation applications?
