802.11p a wireless technology extension to 802.11 standard designed for vehicular traffic and part of a dedicated short range communications (DSRC) system, which operates in the 5.9 GHz band and deals with roaming from cell to cell in a fast-moving vehicle. Using a modified 802.11a technology for North American cars and trucks, DSRC is designed for several applications. For example, ambulances can cause traffic lights down the road to change in their favor, and traffic congestion can be transmitted to automobile navigation systems.
