Welcome to the IEEE 1609 Working Group Public Site

The IEEE 1609 Family of Standards for Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE) define an architecture and a complementary, standardized set of services and interfaces that collectively enable secure vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) wireless communications. Together these standards are designed to provide the foundation for a broad range of applications in the transportation environment, including vehicle safety, automated tolling, enhanced navigation, traffic management and many others. This web site is primarily for the convenience of the members of the IEEE 1609 Working Group who are developing and maintaining these standards, and includes open minutes and public presentations from their meetings. References to the presentations are given in the minutes. Materials are currently available from the following meetings:

For more information about these standards and how they may be purchased, see the following reference:
