Connected Vehicle Environment: Governance Roundtable Proceedings from June 20, 2011
This report documents a governance roundtable discussion hosted by the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Joint Program Office (JPO) on June 20, 2011 at the U.S. DOT’s John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This discussion was organized as a first step towards establishing an ongoing process for developing a governance framework for the V2V/V2I Connected Vehicle environment. The objectives of the discussion were to: 1) gather information from experts on the topic of governance and how it is defined across different industries; 2) identify multiple approaches to evaluating and developing a governance structure or model; and 3) obtain guidance from roundtable experts and observers on a set of next steps. The roundtable was structured as a one-day forum that engaged six experts in a discussion of governance from a non-transportation perspective.
