This call for position papers invites you to submit a position paper for an NSF, NIST, and USCAR sponsored group on Developing Dependable and Secure Embedded Systems from Components. The goal of this group is to address emerging challenges relative to reliability, availability, safety, and security attributes of software-intensive electronic automotive control systems. An example of such a system would be a self-driving vehicle that must adapt in order to navigate safely and efficiently through traffic in the presence of intersections, pedestrians and other traffic. Another example would be an emergency vehicle with advanced engine and transmission controls integrated with stability control that is able to instantly respond to driver input and road conditions and keep the vehicle in the lane while traversing a curve in icy conditions.

As the FCC seeks to expand use of the 5.9 GHz spectrum provided for transportation applications, are there complementary uses that exploit the unusual architecture for communication hand offs as objects travel? For example, would it be useful for commonly carried personal objects to use 5.9 GHz, for exampel with expansion of artificial intelligence among more common objects (see "Talking, Walking Objects" in the New York Times). Or would wifi, bluetooth, or other parts of the
