Wi-Fi for the Internet of Things gets a name: ‘Wi-Fi HaLow’

It’s really sad that 802.11p (5.9 Ghz DSRC for Connected Vehicles) never got this much attention and rapid pace toward deployment – whose fault was that? There was plenty of money thrown at it. Since cars are part of IoT I suppose they will need to support HaLow also. This will fall on innovators, not government (BTW it seems NHTSA decided not to issue a DSRC mandate so far).
