USDOT releases 'Automated Vehicles Comprehensive Plan'

The plan is available on the Federal Register for public comments

The U.S. Department of Transportation this week released an “Automated Vehicles Comprehensive Plan” (AVCP) that details a multi-pronged approach that “prioritizes safety while preparing for the future of transportation,” according to a statement announcing the plan.

“This comprehensive plan lays out a vision for the safe integration of automated vehicles into America’s transportation system while ensuring that legitimate concerns about safety, security and privacy are addressed,” Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao said in the statement.

The plan is available for download and lays out three goals: promoting collaboration and transparency, modernizing the regulatory environment, and preparing the transportation system. It builds on principles established in Automated Vehicles 4.0 (AV 4.0).

The AVCP is posted to the Federal Register for public comments, which should be made within 60 days of the posting.
