Dedicated short-range communications are one-way or two-way short-range to medium-range wireless communication channels specifically designed for automotive use. DSRC uses the 5.9 GHz band allocated by the US govt.

Does a smart phone need any additional hardware to send/receive data using this wireless communication protocol?


1 Answer 1


Very likely, yes, as it's not the same protocol as 802.11a (even if you could get the 5ghz radio onto the right band)
