New iGR Study Shows How DSRC Implementation Will Be a Significant Opportunity for Wireless and Mobile Technology OEMs

Study Shows How Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) Can Be Used to Provide Safer Roads

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 -- Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) presents an opportunity to make streets safer, travel easier and minimize the impact vehicles have on the environment. While the technology could have significant benefits when deployed and fully adopted, the market for DSRC remains nascent. The technology faces many challenges that must be overcome before commercialization, including the presence of competing industry organizations that would like to use the spectrum dedicated to DSRC.

DSRC is a fast, short-to-mid range, two-way wireless technology for vehicle communications. It provides vehicles and infrastructure the ability to report information and "talk" to one another, with information exchange at a rate of 10 times per second, providing the vehicle and the driver with greater situational awareness. Due to its low latency and high data transmission speeds, DSRC lends itself to situations where there is an immediate need for information, such as when a driver must be warned of an oncoming vehicle. The focus of DSRC is reducing millions of accidents that result in fatalities and injuries.

"There are currently no mandates in the U.S. for a DSRC rollout, and many questions regarding funding and deployment remain," said Iain Gillott, president and founder of iGR, a market research consultancy focused on the wireless and mobile industry. "However, in recent testing this technology has shown great potential for increasing driver safety, and it presents a significant opportunity for the wireless and mobile industry -- tens of billions of dollars in new infrastructure."

iGR's new market study, Dedicated Short Range Communications: Wireless Technology for Safer Roads, examines DSRC services, recaps major testing initiatives and trials in the U.S., discusses the barriers and drivers of the technology, and presents information on likely deployment of DSRC for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure uses. It also presents a cost estimate to build out DSRC in the U.S. and Europe.

The following key questions are answered in the new market study:

  • What is DSRC, and why is it useful for vehicle safety applications?
  • What types of vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to infrastructure applications does DSRC allow for?
  • What are the benefits of DSRC, and what are some business challenges and spectrum challenges the technology needs to overcome?
  • How has the government tested DSRC, and when are DSRC mandates expected?
  • How much will DSRC cost to build out in the U.S. and Europe, and what are the opportunities for infrastructure vendors and vehicle OEMs?

The information in this report will be valuable for:

  • Automotive manufacturers and suppliers
  • M2M providers
  • Technology and ITS vendors
  • Infrastructure providers
  • Mobile device OEMs
  • Mobile service providers
  • Financial and investment analysts.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications.
