Automated Vehicle Standards and Policy

ITS America sees the establishment of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) automated vehicle guidance as big step in the right direction. Automated vehicles will transform mobility—improve the efficiency, safety, accessibility of our transportation system—in ways previously unimagined. Building trust and consumer confidence in the technology takes cooperation from industry and government. The Federal Automated Vehicles Policy is a good starting point for establishing more defined roles and responsibilities among industry, state regulators and the federal government in advancing this new technology.

With NHTSA announcement of a proposed standard for Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications, the auto and tech industry will begin process of deploying cooperative safety and mobility applications in cars. Connected vehicle technology and other intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are transforming safety and mobility on our nation’s roadways. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), in coordination with major automakers and other public and private sector innovators, has been working to advance vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications technology to help prevent traffic crashes before they happen.
