Preparing for the Future of Transportation: Automated Vehicles 3.0

Preparing for the Future of Transportation: Automated Vehicles 3.0, October 4, 2018, Washington, DC

Preparing for the Future of Transportation: Automated Vehicles 3.0 (AV 3.0) builds upon Automated Driving Systems 2.0: A Vision for Safety (ADS 2.0). AV 3.0 expands the scope to all surface on-road transportation systems, and was developed through the input from a diverse set of stakeholder engagements, throughout the Nation. AV 3.0 is structured around three key areas:

  1. Advancing multi-modal safety,
  2. Reducing policy uncertainty, and
  3. Outlining a process for working with U.S. DOT

The U.S. DOT sees AV 3.0 as the beginning of a national discussion about the future of our on-road surface transportation system. The U.S. DOT is seeking public comments on the AV 3.0 (Federal Register Notice, DOT-OST-2018-0149 - comment period closed on December 3, 2018), Preparing for the Future of Transportation: Automated Vehicles 3.0 [ISBN 978-0-16-094944-9].
