Partner Event: Wireless Communication in Autonomous Driving

  • Squire Patton Boggs 275 Battery Street, 25th Floor San Francisco, CA, 94111 United States

Autonomous vehicles must have the capability to operate uninterrupted in the radio spectrum in order to be fully functional. With spectrum-related discussions becoming a high priority in the automotive and tech industries, our panel will discuss the importance of understanding the role of wireless communications and radio frequency spectrum in
autonomous technologies.

Without access to adequate spectrum resources, many of the systems on which autonomous vehicles will rely cannot function, including navigation (GPS), vehicle to vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) systems. These issues go well beyond the current controversial proposal before the FCC to share the spectrum allocated for V2V and V2I with unlicensed WiFi.

Robert B. Kelly, chair of our Communications Practice, will moderate our next Autonomous Driving Series event. Speakers for this session will include Dean Brenner, Senior Vice President, Government Affairs for Qualcomm, and Dorothy Glancy, professor of law at Santa Clara University.
