The Mack Institute asks

Before 1 January 2020, will the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) vote in favor of granting a waiver petition [GN Docket No. 18-357] to allow for the further deployment of Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) technology?

In November 2018, trade group 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) filed a petition with the FCC to waive certain restrictions related to the deployment of C-V2X communications technology, GN Docket No. 18-357 (FCC, 5GAA). Various businesses and organizations have taken sides while the FCC reviews the waiver petition (Fierce Wireless, FCCFierce Wireless, New Mobility). The granting of this waiver petition is understood to be of importance in the "DSRC vs. C-V2X standards battle" (Innovation Destination, All About Circuits, Viodi). Only a vote in favor of granting waiver petition GN Docket No. 18-357, in whole or in part, would count toward a Yes resolution. Should the FCC not make a decision before 31 December 2019, the question will close No.
