AV 4.0

AS the world leader in technology, American innovation and ingenuity have historically transformed how we travel and connect with one another. Under this Administration, President Donald J. Trump has stressed the importance of ensuring America’s continued leadership in emerging technologies, including Automated Vehicles (AVs). With the development of AVs, America has the potential to once again transform the future of transportation, while also increasing economic growth and overall productivity. AVs—if developed properly- also have the potential to make our roadways safer by reducing crashes caused by human error, including crashes involving impaired or distracted drivers.
