Barriers to Public Acceptance of Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications

COURSE NO: C03-050
Barriers to Public Acceptance of Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the barriers to public acceptance of Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication systems. This course describes obstacles to widespread purchase of V2V systems and how these obstacles can be overcome.  Examples are privacy concerns including tracking, collection and use of V2V information, hacking (cybersecurity), and health effects of exposure to electromagnetic radiation.


V2V systems use on-board dedicated short-range radio communication devices to transmit information between moving vehicles.  The information consists of speed, acceleration, heading, brake status, and other aspects of the vehicles’ motion. When received in a timely manner, this information helps vehicle systems identify and warn about potential crash situations with other vehicles.


This 3 PDH online course is intended for electrical, mechanical, civil, and transportation engineers concerned with automobile safety.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the importance of public acceptance to establishing the V2V system
  • Learning about the elements that can affect public acceptance of V2V
  • Understanding consumer privacy
  • Learning about privacy impact assessments
  • Learning about the health effects
  • Understanding electromagnetic hypersensitivity in the US and abroad 
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, “Barriers to Public Acceptance of Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications” which is based on Section IV of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that proposes to establish a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS), No. 150, to mandate V2V communications for new light vehicles and to standardize the message and format of V2V.
