For a large number of us that are targets of surveillance because of HLS & Public Safety I'd strongly recommend familiarizing yourself with the last decade of research federal agencies along with universities have put into V2V communications.
DSRC stands for Dedicated Short Range Communications. DSRC is part of a standard for networking vehicles together as they drive at speeds from 0 up to 120 mph. Another common term closely associated with a DSRC network is a VANET or Vehicular Ad-hoc Network.
For DSRC the frequency band is up around 5.9 GHz and consists of 7 channels of 10 MHz each. The last channel (5.915 to 5.925) is for high power public safety applications. In the article, it's noted that a DSRC enabled vehicle can communicate with other DSRC enabled vehicles up to 300 meters away. For high powered public safety applications other DSRC enabled vehicles can be up to 1000 meters away (approximately two-thirds of a mile).
The DSRC standard 802.11p was adapted from 802.11a, the standard for Wi-Fi. DSRC also works great with smart phones in MANETs, mobile networks capable of tracking the random movement of people on foot.
There are not a whole lot of things out there that can target a person every moment, everywhere they go 24/7 and be able to discern between areas outside and even inside the body separated by distances less than an inch.
This is one technology that can and at speeds up to 120 mph. The liability suits that would result if a forward collision warning system hesitated for a fraction of a second or miscalculated the range of an oncoming vehicle by even a fraction of an inch would be very undesirable for the original equipment manufacturers.
[ONE OF THE AREAS OF FOCUS IS GEO-FENCING WHERE THE OUTER BOUNDARIES OF A MANET OR VANET (each node a DSRC enabled vehicle wirelessly connected to other DSRC enabled vehicles) FORM A SECURITY PERIMETER AROUND A TARGET]
Not only can this technology form geo-fences, it also interfaces with the ODB I,II (brain box of the car). You've heard metadata and the NSA. The 'brain box' monitors all the sensor systems in the car and provides diagnostics if a system breaks down. Some may have had an engine light come on at some point and a mechanic shop connected their machine to the brain box and read the error code indicating what went wrong.
This brain box is a computer that is constantly monitoring the stream of data sent from the sensor systems in the car. Things like:
Opening/closing a door
Opening/closing a window
Whether or not the tires are currently losing traction (spinning)
Corning (how much the car is tilting)
The rate of acceleration/de-acceleration
What gear the vehicle in
Whether the headlights, or brake lights, etc.
The direction the vehicle is moving
Movements of the steering wheel
Terrain: smooth, bumpy, etc
In other words, a surveillance team forming a MANET can use this information to better assist in targeting. For example, you're being targeted (implying a firing solution is constantly being calculated). Your vehicle communicates all the real-time data used for consumer applications (like cruise control). Cruise control systems are aware of velocity, acceleration, de-acceleration, brake pedal actuation, gas pedal actuation, etc. This will help them follow your car, predict your routes and warnings (erratic driving behavior, etc), a smartphone in pocket would aid in tracking a person's moment to moment movements while inside the vehicle.
In this article (2014), it states the feds are going to mandate all vehicles be equipped with OEM DSRC chips, all vehicles will be DSRC enabled.
