US DoT asks for public autonomous input

US Secretary of Transportation, Elaine Chao has unveiled her department's progress in advancing the release of Federal Automated Vehicle Policy (FAVP) 3.0, also known as A Vision for Safety 3.0, including public consultation.

US Secretary of Transportation, Elaine Chao has unveiled her department’s progress in advancing the release of Federal Automated Vehicle Policy (FAVP) 3.0, also known as A Vision for Safety 3.0, including public consultation.

“Autonomous vehicle technologies will have a tremendous impact on society in terms of safety, mobility, and security,” said Chao.

FAVP 3.0 will emphasise a unified, intermodal approach to automated driving systems (ADSs) policy. It will enable the safe integration of surface automated transportation systems, including cars, trucks, light rail, infrastructure, and port operations.

“Policy makers need to preserve the creativity and innovation that is part of the American tradition and allow innovation to flourish,” added Chao.

As part of its efforts, the Department has published several automated vehicle notices for public comment on the DOT Website and submitted them to the Federal Register.

The Department is seeking public input from across the transportation industry to identify barriers to innovation and shape initiatives.

“Getting input from the public will help identify which Departmental regulations need to be updated and changed to encourage innovation,” noted Chao.
