The U.S. NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) is seeking information and insights from automotive and related industries as it moves to mandate certain vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) technologies for improved safety. The agency estimates the per-vehicle cost to consumers at about $350 and asks in its official Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM): "Do commenters believe that these costs are reasonably representative for the time frames identified…If not, can commenters provide data to support alternative cost estimates? NHTSA is relying on industry to provide enough answers to the many questions the agency can make a more fully formulated proposal by 2016. The bulk of the ANPRM consists of questions, answers for which are due in about two months; the exact deadline will not be known until the ANPRM is published in the Federal Register in the near future. Meantime, links to the unofficial ANPRM and an associated report can be found at the bottom of a NHTSA press release here: http://www.nhtsa.gov/About+NHTSA/Press+Releases/NHTSA-issues-advanced-notice-of-proposed-rulemaking-on-V2V-communications.
