Steven Shladover, University of California, Berkeley, presiding
Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Vehicle-Highway Automation (AHB30)

This panel discussion considers the current state of development of regulations to govern the safety of automated driving systems based on recent legislation and the updated policy guidance from NHTSA.  Speakers representing NHTSA, states, vehicle developers, and traffic safety advocates will discuss the available options for promoting safety assurance in the absence of explicit federal regulatory requirements and in the situation in which the federal government is discouraging states from stepping into the breach to protect the safety of their road users.
