Connected Vehicle standards

2013-08-12 20:22:31.4005+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Monster boondoggle: Network World: US to standardize car app/communication device components is a bit of a fluff piece on US DOT: RITA: Request for Information Connected Vehicle - Next Stage Certification Environment.

(And I call it a boondoggle knowing that friends of mine will profit from this... Mostly because said friends have shared with me the silliness of the thinking behind it.)

I used to be pissed off about government spending like this. Now I just feel good for my friends managing to ride the absurdity gravy train.

When life imitates Gogol or Kafka, what else can you do?

As a point of information, there was an article about it in this month's American Motorcyclist, the monthly mag of the American Motorcyclist Association, so I guess the PR push is full-on at this point.
