Description of Working Group:

  Automobiles and vehicles of all types are increasingly connected
  to the Internet.  Comfort-enhancing entertainment applications,
  road safety applications using bidirectional data flows, and
  connected automated driving are some of the new features
  expected in automobiles to hit the roads from now to year 2020.

  Today, there are several deployed Vehicle-to-Internet technologies
  (V2Internet) that make use of embedded Internet modules, or an
  occupant's cellular smartphone: mirrorlink, carplay, android
  auto. Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I, not to be mistaken with
  V2Internet) Communications are used for wireless exchange of
  critical safety and operational data between vehicles and roadway
  infrastructure, intended primarily to avoid motor vehicle
  crashes. Similarly, Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications (V2V) are
  used for short-range communications between vehicles to exchange
  vehicle information such as vehicle speed, heading and braking

  This group will work on V2V and V2I use-cases where IP is
  well-suited as a networking technology and will develop an IPv6
  based solution to establish direct and secure connectivity
  between a vehicle and other vehicles or stationary systems. These
  vehicular networks are characterized by dynamically changing
  network topologies and connectivity.

  V2V and V2I communications may involve various kinds of link
  layers: 802.11-OCB (Outside the Context of a Basic Service Set),
  802.15.4 with 6lowpan, 802.11ad, VLC (Visible Light
  Communications), IrDA, LTE-D, LP-WAN.  One of the most used link
  layers for vehicular networks is IEEE 802.11-OCB, as a basis for
  Dedicated short-range communications (DSRC). Several of these
  link-layers already provide support for IPv6. However, IPv6 on
  802.11-OCB is yet to be fully defined. Some aspects of the IPv6
  over 802.11-OCB work have been already defined at IEEE 1609 and
  the specification produced by this working group is expected be
  compatible with these aspects.

  This group's primary deliverable (and the only Standards track
  item) will be a document that will specify the mechanisms for
  transmission of IPv6 datagrams over IEEE 802.11-OCB mode. Once
  this document is completed, it will also be reviewed by the 6man
  working group. This group will work on an informational document
  that will explain the state of the art in the field and describe
  the use cases that will use IPv6 in order to focus the work of
  the group. The group will also work on informational document
  that describes the problem statement and the associated security
  and privacy considerations. The working group will decide at a
  future point whether these informational documents need to be
  published separately as RFCs or if they maybe combined.

  The group will try to reuse relevant technologies for Internet of
  Things (IoT) and infrastructure mobility that have been developed
  in other IETF and IRTF groups. The WG will pay particular
  attention to the privacy characteristics of solution it develops
  in order to minimize unwanted tracking opportunities. The group
  will closely coordinate with IEEE 802.11. The IETF has also
  established a formal liason relationship with ISO/TC204 in
  connection with the work to be performed by this working
  group. The work produced by this group may also be of interest to
  other SDOs such as ETSI TC ITS, 3GPP, and government
  organizations such as the NHTSA. No formal co-ordination is
  anticipated with these groups at this point but work done in
  these SDOs may end up becoming relevant to the WG deliverables in
  the future.
