Viewpoint: Getting on the WAVE of road safety


Martin Nathanson, founder and CTO of Paxgrid Telemetric Systems, on the need to rethink the design of Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS) using Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE) standards for vehicle-to-vehicle communication.

The traditional mode of highway operation rests on a paradigm of a statically configured right-of-way (the highway with its entrances, exits, lanes, speed limits, etc.), and a collection of autonomous agents (vehicles with their drivers), who must all individually thread their way from origin to destination, each governed by the same regulations and operating constraints intended for maximum safety and convenience for all.
