The first joint, multi-modal guidance document for on-road surface transportation automation
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) today released new Federal guidance for automated vehicles, advancing its commitment to supporting the safe integration of automation into the broad multimodal surface transportation system. ‘Preparing for the Future of Transportation: Automated Vehicles 3.0’ (AV 3.0) builds upon—but does not replace—voluntary guidance provided in ‘Automated Driving Systems 2.0: A Vision for Safety.’
On October 4, 2018, U.S. DOT published Preparing for the Future of Transportation: Automated Vehicles 3.0 (AV 3.0). The event was web casted live and a docket (Docket No. DOT-OST-2018-0149) has been opened so that stakeholders and the public can submit their comments on AV 3.0.
The pace of development and deployment of automated vehicle-related technology is expected to accelerate over the next decade. How might this new technology impact the transportation workforce?
