Connected Vehicle Standards and Policy
ITS America sees the establishment of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) automated vehicle guidance as big step in the right direction. Automated vehicles will transform mobility—improve the efficiency, safety, accessibility of our transportation system—in ways previously unimagined. Building trust and consumer confidence in the technology takes cooperation from industry and government. The Federal Automated Vehicles Policy is a good starting point for establishing more defined roles and responsibilities among industry, state regulators and the federal government in advancing this new technology.

Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, a five-year, $305 billion surface transportation reauthorization bill, was signed into law by President Obama on December 4, following final passage by the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 359 to 65 and by the U.S. Senate by a vote of 83 to 16. The legislation includes a first-ever Innovation Title which will fund critical research and accelerate the adoption of technologies to address highway and vehicle safety, traffic congestion, mobility, infrastructure condition, and other current and future transportation challenges.
