AV Roadmap outlines steps for policymakers to take that will unlock AV technologies for the traveling public

The Alliance for Automotive Innovation (Auto Innovators) this week announced the release of its comprehensive roadmap to guide federal government policies that can advance the testing and deployment of automated vehicles (AVs) in the U.S.

The AV Roadmap outlines the auto industry’s AV policy priorities and establishes the need for policymakers to take key steps that will unlock AV technologies for the traveling public, which Auto Innovators says will empower a cleaner, safer, smarter future.

“Automated vehicles have the potential to solve many of our current transportation dilemmas. They make our roads safer, increase access to mobility, and decrease traffic congestion among other benefits,” Auto Innovators President and CEO John Bozzella said in a statement. “The United States has long led when it comes to automotive innovation and safety technology, and AVs are the next step in maintaining our technological edge. We look forward to partnering with policymakers at both the federal and state levels to harness the vast potential of AV technology to make transportation safer and more accessible.”

The AV Roadmap by Auto Innovators includes a four-year plan for supportive government policies to enhance the oversight, testing, and deployment of AVs and includes 14 specific recommendations addressing the following pillars: reform regulations to allow for AV deployment at scale; harmonize federal, state, and international policies; and laying the foundation to achieve longer-term objectives.

The AV Roadmap can be found on the Auto Innovators website.
