The General Services Administration and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are working together to evaluate a new safety technology for federal vehicles.

Both agencies also plan to develop a pilot program to explore new safety technologies for the federal fleet, GSA said Tuesday.

Dan Tangherlini, GSA administrator, said the agency intends to implement safety best practices for federal drivers by introducing the same technology to the entire federal fleet program.

“Hi-tech innovation plays a critical role in everything we do here at GSA, from ordering basic supplies with a simple tap of a screen to controlling energy consumption for millions of square feet of federal space with one click,” Tangherlini said.

Other federal agencies will collaborate to share data on their vehicles with the goal of consolidating safety concepts into the government policy under the program, GSA said.
