The goal of the meeting and webinar is to identify where we are and what remains in getting to the 2013 decision on Vehicle Communications for Safety, discuss what is evolving in terms of a robust Vehicle-to-Infrastructure environment, and identify what we have learned from past ITS deployments that can help with success for the future.
